Hoosier Fly Fishers Christmas Meeting and Party

I’m looking forward to the Hoosier Fly Fishers Annual Christmas Party on December 10, 2017! It will be at the Colorado Steakhouse again this year, starting about 11:00.  The club will provide the meal and nonalcoholic drinks for members. For those of us who may be interested in a seasonally appropriate adult beverage, we are on our own for that…

The raffle prize this year will be an Orvis access 2 mid arbor reel for 6 wt. line and a Temple Forks Outfitters 7 ft. two-piece brush rod for a 5 or 6 wt. line. This is the outfit Larry Barber brought to the November meeting and if I may say so, this is one sweet outfit.

If you haven’t paid your membership dues, now would be a good time to do it.

Looking forward to seeing all of you on December 10th at the Colorado Steakhouse for the Annual HFF Christmas Party!

October – November Meetings

The HFF October Meeting went well with a pretty good turn out for the meal and the meeting. There was a fair amount of fish tales going around during the meal. While I was in a heated discussion about how the summer fishing was on lake Monroe, I was able to hear some of the other conversations around the room. Some of the words I recall being uttered were, steelhead, smallie, wiper, walleye, salmon, one pound bluegills, and a rainbow. I’m not sure if the rainbow discussion was about the piscatorial type or an astrological phenomenon. At any rate, I’m sure they were all “keepers”.

After the short business meeting, Mike Donovan tied a few of his favorite traditional streamers. We tried to film the event to see if we can build a video library of the clubs favorite flies. We hope to have a page with fly tying videos on it soon.

Also, Charlie and Jeanne Shaw gave a presentation on their trip to Montana this past summer. What a great trip they had! The video and presentation was spectacular. Check out some of their photos in the gallery below. We hope to have more pictures and maybe a video of their adventure in the main gallery soon. Thanks, Charlie and Jeanne.

The November meeting of the HFF will be on Tuesday the 21st.
As always, at the Colorado Steakhouse, dinner at 6:00 and the program at 7:00.

The program this month will be US… In a recent discussion with a friend it was suggested that it may be interesting to have the members bring some photos of their favorite place to fish. Where is that place and why is it your favorite place, what did you catch and on what fly? Is this magic place near and familiar or far away and exotic?

Dick Powell will be doing the tying demo. I am thinking it may be a Frank Sawyers Pheasant Tail (wire instead of thread). I am looking forward to this…

The Christmas party will be December 10th at the Colorado Steakhouse. Stay tuned for details.

Stay warm,

Tim
