2021 Outlook.

Weather is improving, waters are moving, and it is beginning to look like Spring near Bloomington. Fish have been biting in the creeks and lakes with sunny day water temps in the lower to mid 50’s. Go fish if you can, just stay safe, we are not out of this pandemic yet. 

There is no good news yet from the Club but there has been some discussion on planning a meeting sometime soon. Check back here to see when and if anything  like safe meetings or outings can be planned.

On a high note, I have heard, from someone with good authority, that JL Waters on the Square in downtown Bloomington has recently expanded and restocked their shelves and pegboards with “tons” of good stuff for fly fishers. Better hurry down there before it’s all gone. Wear a mask! 

HFF Meeting March 17, 2020 Postponed

After a good deal of thought and deliberation, the Hoosier Fly Fishers executive committee has come to the conclusion that given the current state of affairs with the Corona Virus we will postpone the March 17th meeting until further notice.  This was not an easy decision; we were all looking forward to Joe Smith’s presentation on Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing. It is our hope that we can reschedule this presentation later in the year. I will keep you informed as to how this change will affect the rest of the year.

Our plan for the rest of the year for the HFF programs is to proceed as planned, with the auction in April and then the picnic sometime in May.  We are working on having Joe Smith present his Program, Healing Waters Fly Fishing, in an early fall meeting.  I know we are all looking forward to this presentation.


About the auction; once again we are indeed fortunate to have our own Kevin “The Voice” as our auctioneer.  Remember, the auction is for fishing and outdoor recreation related items. So…round up all the really good stuff you don’t need and give Kevin something to work his magic with.


Sometime soon JL Waters will be sponsoring Fly Tying Lessons. Larry Barber will fill us in on the lessons at a later date.


Stay tuned for any changes/update in the upcoming programs.


Stay safe and well,
