Food–Menu of three items (hot dog, hamburger, chicken strips) each with fries, $6, $2 for soft drink.

Car Painting–John Mathews will be there ready to go by 8:00AM and continuing for a couple or hours for putting some of his beautiful fly designs on your rig.

Casting–Will be out on the nice long grassy area just east of the club house.  You can actually see this from inside down by the end window.

Make UP Class for Fly tying class, Thursday21st of this month (March) at the Art Center Classroom from 6 to 8ish. We will go a little longer so we can do a bit of a review of last class for those that were not able to attend.  Dry fly patterns will be the focus…fun, fun, fun!

Spring casting practice

Maybe fishing has not been top priority after the past two weeks of historic winter weather. We’re all looking forward to spring. Yes, it will come… hopefully not before you get all those broken trees cleaned up.

The annual club casting practice starts next month and continues into May. The April events are at Amacher Park.

  • Wed. 4/3 – 5 pm to 6:30 pm at the picnic area, Amacher Park
  • Sat. 4/13 – 9:30 am to 11:30 am at Amacher Park (coffee and donut day!)
  • Wed. 4/17 – 5 pm to 6:30 pm at Amacher Park
  • Sat. 5/18 – 8 am to 9:20 am at Ben Irving Reservoir in the beach area

See you there!


Not giving up on getting YOU to put some thoughts down in haiku and submitting them. Go ahead and add published POET to your resume after accomplishing this!  Here is another sample…just string some thoughts together and sound it out: 5 syllables first and last line, 7 for middle line.

A day still so young

Water’s gentle lap beckons

Succumb to its call
