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 channel. This is to happen this coming Monday, at 8 am. Bring waders, warm clothing and gloves, as it will require some in stream work. Some of us have had the pleasure of helping build this years ago and now it does need our help to repair, so if anyone has the time and willing, please come out. If never been there and need directions, just call. I plan on being there.

Last is our club meeting next Thursday. Dec 1st at 7 pm, Sandman Inn. See you there. That is all for now, tight lines and bent rods.
