News of Upcoming Meetings 2020

Well, here we are at the 1st of October. This has been one hell of a year so far…  I hope we have all have managed at least some fishing in the past months. I am assured that fishing is/can be an effective means of social distancing. It does seem at times that the fish take the distancing a bit too far…

I am writing  to assure you that the HFF will have an October meeting. The Executive Committee will meet early next week to establish the where and when for this meeting. We are all looking forward to getting together again to swap tall tales true or otherwise.

So, the news summary. The HFF will meet in late October. Time and place TBA. Check back for updates to the HFF Calendar.

Looking forward to seeing you all again,

Stay well,

Tim

Meetings 2020 and the Corona Virus

I trust you are all well and safe and not too much more nuts than you were before this virus business began. I am beginning to understand why dogs take such pleasure in staring out closed windows. I am finding teaching studio classes online a bit like teaching swimming without water. I am guessing we can go fishing if we remain a fly rod length apart!

The executive committee has been discussing the HFF meeting schedule for the remaining dates of the year. We have come to the consensus that we should regroup in the Fall. As Kevin pointed out, “I think we need to remain cautious, 90% of the fatalities are in the population of 60 and up.” I think at least some of us are in that group.

We will schedule the Club Auction for the Fall, perhaps the first meeting. Kernal Kevin has agreed to again treat us to his melodious voice and skills. We are also hoping to work on a Fall, Club Member Picnic. We are also 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 his presentation.

We hope you all stay safe and well. Please let us know of any exciting and safe ways you devise for the coming months. And let us hope things are more certain and settled in the Fall. We certainly hope you are able to do some fishing over the summer and will arrive at the first fall meeting with fresh tales of all the One Pound Bluegills you caught.

Be well,

Tim
