Upcoming events

   

May 24 Club Meeting--Larry Lack "Entomology 101"

Date: Tuesday, May 24

Time: 7:00pm - 9:00pm (fly tying and social meet and greet at 6:30)
Place: Town Center Corte Madera - Room 201
Above the AT&T store, Hwy 101 at Tamalpais Blvd. in Corte Madera

If you want to be a successful fly fisher, then knowing as much as you can about the ‘Big Four’ groups of aquatic insects that represent about 90-95% of the diet of Trout, is essential.
We’ll cover some pretty basic info about the ‘Big Four’, including the months and times when specific groups are active, both hatching and ‘in the drift’.   We’ll  learn about the different types of drift, and how that info can lead to fly fisher success.
We’ll also determine how they can be identified, either in the air, or in the water.
We’ll also offer suggestions for answering the question, “What fly do I use?”
Finally, we’ll explore each of the groups in detail, Mayflies, Stoneflies, Caddis flies, and Midges, and discover what their characteristics, both as immatures and as adults, can tell us about how as fly fishers we can be more successful.

UPCOMING FISHING EVENTS

Yuba River in April.  We are STILL waiting for the Lower Yuba to settle down and start fishing.  As of May 2, the river was running twice normal flows, although clear and fishable.  On that day, your club prez had the river to himself.  The fish were undisturbed.

Monthly Fly Tying May 20--a New Venue for this Popular Event

For future Friday Night Fly Tying, we’re going to be using the Board Room at The Club at McInnis Park.  This is the same room our board uses the third Tuesday of every month.  It’s actually more central to all of Marin, and again we can use it for free as long as a few folks order something off the menu; like a beverage, or a small salad, or quesadillas, or cheeseburger, etc.

So, our tying night this month will be
Friday, May 20, 6:30 to 8:00 at The Club in the Board Room.  If you’ve never been to The Club, go east on Smith Ranch Rd, past the Regency Theaters, then past several soccer pitches, all the way to the end and you’ll see The Club.  Go in the entrance to the restaurant, turn right and proceed past the Golf Pro Shop to the Board Room.

   Hope to see you there.

If you have your own tools, bring ‘em, but vises, tools, and all materials will be provided.
