Out next meeting is Jan 14, with Dustin Harley of Ripple Guide Service.

The Social Hour starts at 6 PM and announcements at 6:45PM. Presentations start at 7 PM and run to about 8PM.

We will be raffling a guide trip at this meeting for 2 on the St Joe with Ripple Guide Service. 

The topic of the talk will be 

A Year on the St. Joe

It has been said for the fly-fisherman, the St. Joe River is an enigma wrapped in a mystery. This program will unwrap the mystery of what is quite possibly the best steelhead fishery in the United States. This presentation covers the vast angling opportunities the river and its tributaries offer throughout the year. Included are techniques for steelhead, salmon, smallmouth bass, longnose gar, rod/reel selection, fly selection, terminal rigging, and reading the water.

Also we have a casting  instruction this Sunday at Scioto Park 10-1PM, with Nicki Page. Should be a great day. We are in the middle pavilion. Please join us. Two handed casting lessons as well!

Fly Tying with Nikki Page, 1/13/19 11-2 @ Orvis Worthington

 Nikki will be joining us at Orvis in Worthington Sunday from 11 Р2 on 1/13/19 to demonstrate some of her amazing patterns.  I will attach these patterns with the corresponding recipe for the fly so that you may tie along.  Should be a great outing!
Some of you have let me know you are planning to attend but I really need a count as we might have to limit numbers due to space constraints.  So if you are planning to be there, let me know by responding to this email or mention something tomorrow night.
Hope to see you there!
