April 12th Speaker

April’s meeting will be given by Ethan Simmons – ODNR

“Ohio’s muskie program: Creating the fish of 1,000 casts”

March COFF Meeting this Tuesday, March 8th 6-8pm

I hope everyone is outside today and not reading this email!  70’s and no rain! Please be safe though, I know a lot of reservoirs are releasing water and that can make currents swift and water levels higher than normal.  

Was great to see everyone last month!  Jon Horn has another great speaker lined up for us this month.  Matt Parker, General Manager of ReelFlyRod in Bellbrook (just outside of Dayton) and local guide, will be talking all things fly fishing, SW Ohio River smallmouth bass and if we’re lucky even a little tarpon fishing.  
Check out some more here:https://www.reelflyrod.com/matthew-parker.html

Social hour to start appx. 6pm with the program beginning promptly at 7pm at our usual Smokehouse Brewing.  

We will have some raffle items, tbd, and while we don’t want to overwhelm you with raffles, this is an important fundraising component for the club.  The funds raised go directly to club programming and our ever important education component.

If we haven’t had a chance to meet, please make sure to find me and introduce yourself.  It’s your club and I’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas.    

Enjoy the weekend and we’ll see you Tuesday.
