Hello everyone, I hope your fishing has been productive. The bass have been very active lately  along with most of the warm water fish. 

As you may know, COFF normally has  a  September meeting at the smokehouse brewing Co, but with the ongoing pandemic that is not possible

This year. However, we do have a great Fall lineup for everyone to enjoy. Next Tuesday (Sept 8th) at 7PM we will be having a great presenter 

Via a Zoom meeting. Our guest will be Jen Riipple, Editor-in-Chief of Dun Magazine will join us next Tuesday for a virtual meeting sharing her expertise targeting Smallmouth Bass on the Fly.  

@jen_ripple is an avid fly fisher with extensive fishing experience in both salt and freshwater.  Don’t miss this chance to learn from a pro, and pick her brain!

In October we will be having  Curtis P. Wagner,  Fisheries Management Supervisor, Ohio Department of Natural Resources as a guest doing a Zoom Presentation on Ohio Brook Trout.

In November we will Lance Egan, of Orem, Utah, a member of the USA Fly Fishing Team and well known euro nymphing expert talk about Euro Nymphing.

Also this fall we are working on a socially distanced casting outing. As the plans for this event become clearer we will post something on Facebook and our website. 

As a reminder to everyone about Dues, last January we decided to better coordinate our dues with our first regular meeting in September of 2021.  No dues 

For exiting members will be collected until 2021.

Hopefully before that time we’ll all be able to meet again at the Barley Smokehouse, but in the interim please try and get out fishing with a member. We are working on  setting up something on Facebook 

That will allow people to find someone to fish with. 


I hope to see everyone next Tuesday!

President, COFF
