One of the most anticipated events every year is Flycasters Annual Conservation Fundraiser
Circle Saturday January 27th on your calendar - the Fundraiser is always a fun AND important event.
Once again we will be at the Campbell Community Center, 1 West Campbell Avenue. We have rented the Orchard City Room - a very large banquet hall.
Prizes will again include discounted lodge trips to Alaska and other destinations - and gear, flies, clothing, and all kinds of fly fishing accessories - as well as plenty of prizes for the non-angler.
There are still some details to work out as far as WHEN the doors open - and HOW MUCH it will cost - and a FULL LIST of donors and prizes will be forthcoming - as well as the announcement of the featured GUEST SPEAKER.
The Marty Seldon Memorial Conservation Fundraiser and Awards Banquet is a terrific event each year - so stay tuned for information on how to buy tickets online or at the club meetings -there will once again be bonus raffle tickets given out to early purchasers.
The first full weekend of October - October 7 - 8 - Flycasters will be fishing for Striped Bass close to home at the O'Neill Forebay, San Luis Reservoir.

There are strict regulations regarding water craft so be sure to contact Jim Knecht for more information and to sign up.
Then October 19 - 22 Bill Hubbard is the fishmaster for the trip to Davis Lake - early fall is prime time for this northern California stillwater. There are still a few spots open so contact Bill Hubbard for details and sign ups -
Then in November you have the chance to go back-to-back on two great Steelhead fishouts -- Frank Eldredge leads the Klamath River fishout November 2 -5, and Jim Isaacson is fishmaster for the Trinity River fishout which is adjacent/overlap on November 5 - 8.
