Well, here we are, the first official meeting of the year for the HFF is this coming Tuesday, October, 15th. Again, this year we will be meeting at the American Legion Post # 18 at 1800 W. 3rd Street, Bloomington. Dinner at 6:00 PM and the program at 7:00PM.
The meeting this month will be a discussion on the 3-5 best flies for Wipers/Walleyes. Please bring your suggestions and/or examples. We will also be treated to a tying demo by our own Mike B. He will tie a Clouser Minnow. BTW, when some folks are asked their 3 best Wiper flies the answer will be; Gray over white Clouser, chartreuse over white Clouser and an all white Clouser. Although I have heard some mumbles about a Deceiver… I am guessing there might even be some Wiper flies in the raffle.
As this is the first meeting of the year, dues are due, $20 for the whole year. We will also create a slate of officers for next year to be voted on during the November meeting. Those lucky winners will take office at the Christmas party. The Members Christmas party will be Saturday December 14th at 5:00PM at the American Legion. The club provides the meal. The menu will be Turkey or Ham, Whipped Potatoes, Green Beans, Tossed Salad and Desert. Coffee-tea and rolls are provided. Appropriate Adult beverages will be on your tab.
As always, we are looking for future program ideas. Please do make some suggestions. Hoping to see you all this coming Tuesday. 6:00 at the American Legion Blue Room.
