HFF Meeting July 2022

The weather seems a little more humane today. Now if a little more of the predicted rain actually shows up it may well be considered a good day. Looking forward to fewer 90 degree daze…

The July meeting of the HFF will be July 19th. As always we will meet at 6:00 with dinner at 7:00. In addition to the announcements and roundtable there will be a raffle. The July program will be a demo of tying a Mini Feather Game Changer fly. In addition to the demo of this particular method of articulated fly patterns, I assume there will be suggestions of other methods of achieving this type of fly. I will bring some examples of other articulated flies and look forward to seeing  other examples. For the demo I will be showing various ways of finishing the fly. The picture below is one type head I will be tying.

Future programs include:

An outing to Yellowwood State Forest is planned when the weather is a little better.

The October program will be most interesting, we are having Joe Smith of Project Healing Waters giving a presentation on their goals and activities. This is one not to miss. 

As is always the case, we look for your suggestions for future programs.

Looking forward to seeing everyone at the legion on the 19th at 6:00. Bring some tall tales of summer fishing success…

Stay cool, Tim

Anyone interested in fly fishing or fly tying is welcome to attend. There seems to be increased interest in fly tying and this would be a good time to come see what it’s all about. More fly tying demos and maybe even tying classes will be scheduled in the future, so stay tuned. Hope to see you there.

Upcoming meetings: Project Healing Waters,  Annual Club Auction with Kernal Kevin, and the club picnic.
