Little reminder that the February meeting of the HFF will be this coming Tuesday the 20th at the Colorado Steakhouse. As mentioned, Chef Steve will be showing us how to fillet and prepare a large fish. This may come in handy if any of us ever catch a large fish…you know, like a 1# Bluegill. Time allowing, there will be a tying demo.
For the future please keep in mind that the Hff Auction will be at the April 17th meeting and the picnic will be sometime in May. So start saving up some really good stuff for the auction. We have to give something for Kernal Kevin to show off his skills at parting us from our money with his rapid-fire patter.
We are going to try something a little different this year for the ‘fly tying class.” We will meet at the Colorado Steakhouse at 6:00 on February 27th and again on March 13th. These sessions will be demonstration/hands on events. Several tiers will demo a pattern and then give up their seat for instruction to anyone interested in that pattern. We are very open to pattern suggestions, however, our thinking at this point is flies that work well in local waters. For example, I am planning on showing some simple but effective variations on a Clouser Minnow. More on this at the February 20th meeting.
See you there,
UPDATE: Chef Steve did a wonderful job with the fish and it was delicious! Check out Bobby’s Colorado Steak House at 1635 North College Avenue Bloomington, IN , for a wonderful dining experience.
