Hello Fly Club members.   Were into fall / winter now and club meetings have started.   Our last meeting AGM went well with 21 members attended.  The new executive has been voted in and all is set for another fine year for the members. The new calendar of events has been revised, with proper dates and places set for our upcoming activities. check attachment for this.  A recap of the club outings were discussed and new ideas were introduced.  A couple new ideas were brought forward by Steve V. and will be added to our symposium next year.  The fly tying dates are set and as usual, paid up members are all invited. A great way to get people to remember to pay their dues.  Were still at $20.00 for membership per year.  Dates are set for next years symposium, check the date on calendar, March 25-26, 2016 We are also having our xmas social this year on Dec. 17th.  A bit later than usual but very happy Mike and Brenda B. will host again. The spey casting workshop is on Nov. 6th this year.  Genelle boat launch site,  10 am start. Other good news, Don L. is getting better each time we see him.  He is working on his ‘Murphy Creek upper cut’ and should be catching fish next season. Our club fishing outings are at Summit Lake, Premier Lake and White Lake-Salmon Arm area next year.  All should be fishing great again next year. We have a draw again this year.  Its going to be a double draw.  Two rods, each worth 750.00 approx.  100 tickets will be sold only for each rod.  The first rod is a Sage Accel 9’-5wt. and the second rod is an ‘Eikre’ 10’3”-4wt. rod.   Both are new to the fly rod market and are both fantastic rods.  Tickets are available at the fly shop.  Only club members are allowed to get in on the draws.  I have cast both and am really impressed with each. Ok, thats all for now, was on the river yesterday and fish are still biting.  So remember, Tight lines and bent rods, till next time.  Rod Zavaduk.
