Events – Nov 2017

Hello Again to you all. A couple items to report. It is Remembrance Day and a thank you to all those who fought in the wars to protect our freedom and independence. Our last meeting we asked some person to take on the Salvation Army task of organizing the day to run the kettle in Trail. Fran Pargeter stepped up to organize and others have said they would help. If possible, do get a hold of Fran to give your number and when you could help out. His number is 250-367-9320. On our other schedule of events, we have the fly/spey casting outing at the Genelle boat launch site, tomorrow, Sunday Nov. 12 at 10am start. Bring your rods/equipment and waders, boots and warm clothing and do some casting. We should have some of the members that do this, available to teach what we want to learn. A good way to get some fresh air at the same time. That’s all for now. See you all tomorrow. Tight lines and bent rods....

Club News – Nov 2016

Hello again fly club members Ah, the cold weather is coming and we might have to put the rods down for a couple months. I have noticed lots of the avid fisher persons still going out and doing quite well on the Columbia. Great to see. And fish are also happy to see us out there, I know they will get lonely when the cold weather comes. A couple items we should pass on: Fly tying is going on Tuesday nights, in Castlegar, at my house, 7 pm till ?. we have had three sessions and should get a couple more in, so if needing a good evening out, bring your tying gear and show up. We have tied soft hackles first night, bead head prince nymphs second and booby’s the third. And some even resemble what they are supposed to look like. Some will end up on the fish, I’m sorry to say. Next is our fly club draws are happening, this time is two draws, one a sage rod and other is an Eikre fly rod. Both fantastic rods. Tickets can be picked up at Fly Shop. Only stipulation is you must pay your membership for the 2016-17 season. tickets are $5.00 each. Upcoming, we have been requested by the Trail fish/wildlife club to help them clean and do a work shop at the Murphy Creek spawning...

Goldfish in Dragon Lake

Hello again fly club members. Just something to look at and see what happens when someone does the wrong thing with invasive species. This probably happened by someone not wanting to destroy their pets and couldn’t keep them any more. A tragedy for this lake....
