We still have the Breakfast Gathering at Holder's Country Inn on the Saturday before each monthly meeting.
The Trinity River Fishout is planned for November 13 - 16.
The New Year will kick off with the Annual Conservation Fundraiser and Awards Banquet - more details soon.
And there will be a Fishout Planning Meeting scheduled soon as well - Volunteer to be a fishmaster if you like or you can make suggestions about where you think the club would have a good time fishing. The last few years the club has expanded its calendar of fishouts - we are going fishing more often and to a greater variety of destinations.
Matt Heron started his fly fishing career over two decades ago and has never looked back. Matt grew up catching trout and bass in the historic Adirondack Mountains, and not long after was chasing the huge trophy Steelhead, Browns and Salmon in the Great Lakes tributaries every fall and spring.
He has fished extensively in the United States and throughout the world including Alaska, British Columbia, Hawaii, Chile, Cuba, Mexico, Belize, Honduras, Aruba, and Bonaire.
Now that Cuba is once again open to American tourism, Matt will be presenting a program devoted to exploring the Caribbean Island’s opportunities for salt water fly fishing.
Join us on November 9th for the club meeting. Doors open at 6:30pm and the meeting will begin at 7:15 – We meet at the Moreland Apts meeting room – the northeast corner of Payne and Saratoga Ave. Park across the street at the shopping center and use the crosswalk at the light.
