October – Fly Tying

The first Official fall meeting of the Hoosier Fly Fishers went well. Several members were in attendance for the great food and fly tying demos. A slate of nominees was presented by Mike Donovan for next month’s election of officers.

Fly tying demos were presented by Barry Clarke and Dick Powell. Barry tied Lefty’s Deceiver and Dick showed how to tie a Parachute Adams. Both did a good job of explaining the details that make both flies very popular  with anglers .  

October is the beginning of the membership year for HFF so dues are due now. Anyone with an interest in Fly Fishing or Fly Tying is welcome to come to meetings to see what Hoosier Fly Fishers is all about. If you would like more information about HFF check out the rest of the website or visit the CONTACT page and email one of  our members.  Check the calendar for upcoming meetings or events.

Summer is for Fishing

I hope you all have had a chance to get some fishing in this Spring. It is time to start thinking about our Unofficial meetings. As usual, we will meet at the Colorado Steakhouse at 6:00 for dinner. So, it is time to tell us all about your 24” smallmouth and 1 pound + bluegill all from local waters!

The date for the summer meetings are:

June 19th

July 17th

August 21st

Sept 18th

The first Official meeting will be October 16th.

Hope to see you all next Tuesday…


FISH REPORT: Lake Monroe is finally down to near normal levels,  and the creeks have cleared out a little so maybe we can get some local fishing reports coming in. I do know almost everything is biting well now and the mulberry hatch is going on if you are into that sort of thing. The first unofficial meeting of the HFF is a good time to  get unreliable fish reports.  . If you are into good food and like to talk fishing then stop by Bobby’s Colorado Steak House on the 19th and join us. Meetings are always open to anyone interested in fly fishing or fly tying.

MAIL BAG:  Fahad fishing somewhere in Texas. Nice fish! Can’t wait to hear all about it. I bet it was taken on a clouser minnow of the appropriate color.
