One need not be a member to contribute to the fishing literature we love! Not giving up on getting folks 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

Oh My!!

Fall Fly Fishing/Tying Festival 2020

Once again we will be holding this event at the Roseburg Country Club.  Next nears event will be on the 12th of September from 9:00 to 4:00.  A little bit of everything for the fly fisher.  Many of the best fly tyers in the Pacific Northwest to sit down with and observe, ask questions and discuss the intricacies involved in the art of fly tying.  Casting will be going on all day and you can tune up your stroke with some help from some of our local experts.  Free admission, food, loads of great raffles, vendors a silent auction and much more.  Come join in on the fun.

Tie-One-On Tuesday

Our first “Tie One On” was held at Backside Brewery last Tuesday (March 20th) at 1:00pm and everyone had a great time! Pattern covered was Mike’s “foam back wiggler”. Feathers few, laughs were had, hints and tips were passed on, refreshments consumed. Join us for the next one on April 10th.
