Monday Meeting -- May 14th

Chester McDonald will be speaking at our May, 14th meeting about his trip to Alaska last fall. He had planned the trip as a hunting trip, but it turned into a fantastic fishing trip. He caught Grayling on the Kenai Peninsula in Alaska.

Chester entertained us previously with a presentation on a self-guided fishing trip to Alaska that he made in 2016. It will be a talk you don't want to miss.
The meeting will be at 7 pm at the Wildlife and Fisheries building at 2000 Quail Drive, Baton Rouge.

March 26 fly tying

Our next monthly fly tying session will be at the Goodwood Library at 7711 Goodwood Boulevard, meeting room Conference Room B on the 2nd floor.  Time is 7:00pm.

This month we will honor the late Lefty Kreh by tying his Deceiver.  The fly was created by Lefty in the late 1950s as a baitfish pattern for Chesapeake Bay stripers. When Lefty moved to south Florida in the early 1960s, he began using it for a wide variety of saltwater fish.  It's reported to have caught over 100 species to date.  In 1991, the Deceiver was honored by the U.S. Postal Service with a stamp of the fly.

Bring your tying tools if you have some. If not, the club has a few sets for use. Materials are provided.

As always, beginners are welcome!

We'll discuss the Grand Isle Fly Fishing Weekend for this year. Last year, we were forced to cancel after a booking error had occured and we were unable to find an alternative site for that weekend. It led to much feedback about the trip in general, and possible relocation. We'll discuss those options. Also: fishing reports, upcoming activities and more.
