November 2021 HFF Meeting

The next meeting of the HFF will be Tuesday, November 16th at the American Legion post on 3rdst. Dinner at 6:00 PM Program at 7:00 PM.

This will be a busy and exciting meeting. First we will have an up or down vote on the officers for next year. They will be installed at the December meeting. There will be a selection of hackle for sale at half the original price. These will be for personal tying and not for resale. There are some real deals here for your winter fly tying adventures. In addition to the feathers, there will be some rod building supplies and several finished rods for your perusal. As always, looking for future program suggestions and hearing a few of your fantastic fishing stories.

On the program Barry Clarke will demonstrate the Uni Knot and several of its applications in fly fishing. There will be some paracord for some hands-on practice. Tim will be demonstrating how to tie the “Lake Lemon Lady” nymph. This is a pretty darn good Bluegill fly.

We are working on a location for the Christmas Party…suggestions are welcome. We will let you know as soon as a site is confirmed. Looking forward to seeing you all this coming Tuesday the 16th at American Legion Post # 18 at 1800 W. 3rd. ST> Bloomington. Dinner at 6:00 PM and the program at 7:00 PM.

In the meantime go chase some Wipers at Lake Monroe…

Best to you all,


HFF Meeting Scheduled For October

I trust you are all enjoying the weather. Personally, I could stand another 6 weeks of this…well maybe a bit of rain here and there. We are going to try one more wet wading day on Sunday. After that, I am thinking it is time to chase some Wipers.

So, we have the October meeting of the HFF coming up on the 20th. It is looking like a rather busy meeting. As usual, we will start with dinner. There will be announcements concerning new and old news.  Among the new items, we need to nominate officers for the coming year. We will vote on the slate at the December meeting. And, BTW, dues are now due.

We will then have a round table discussion to catch us all up on everyone’s summer adventures.  I am anxious to hear how you all were able to spend some time in something resembling an exciting adventure. Myself, I was finally  able to understand what the dogs and cats find so Intriguing while staring blankly out the window.

The big hit of the evening will be Mike D. tying a Jelly Bean Nymph. Chances are good that this will look so good you may be tempted to take a bite. I have been asked to tell you this Jelly Bean is not for human consumption.

The November meeting will be the auction. Kernal Kevin has been resting his voice for a bit so he should be in good form. We ask you to bring some fishing and outdoor equipment so Kevin has something to work with. More information on the auction coming soon.

We will  again meet at the American Legion Post # 18 at 1800 W. 3rd. ST Bloomington. Dinner at 6:00 and the program at 7:00. We will be meeting in the big dining room so there will be room for social distancing. The Legion is now able to serve at 75% capacity.

Please follow the mask requirements of the county and the American Legion.

Looking forward to seeing you all on the 20th..

Stay well,
