March 2022 HFF Meeting

The next meeting of the Hoosier Fly Fishers will be March 15th. As usual, we will meet at the American Legion Post at 19800 W> 3rd ST. Bloomington. Dinner at 6:00 and the program at 7:00

So far this year we have had a rod building class, the fly-tying class is under way and the last program was Larry Barber’s extensive presentation on what fish eat. This month’s meeting will involve putting it all together. Starting with the rod, reel, backing, lines, leaders, tippets, knots  and finally the fly. There will be some show and tell, suggestions on rigging the rod, and choosing good flies for local waters, ( bring examples of some of your favorite flies.)  We will also share information about the location of local waters, both moving and still and discuss tackle and tactics for these different water types.

This is a lot of “stuff” to be in one meeting! It is our hope that this meeting will answer some questions and prompt  some new questions and a few suggestions for future meeting topics. I am hoping the weather gets around to giving us a reasonable chance to take all this equipment, information and skills out on the water and perhaps even catch a fish or two…

Looking forward to see you all on the 15th at the Legion. Dinner at 6:00 program at 7:00.

Stay warm and dry, Tim
