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.

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. 

WE WILL POST THE ZOOM LINK ON FACEBOOK AND THE WEBSITE AS SOON AS IT IS AVAILABLE. I’LL ALSO EMAIL THE LINK TO EVERYONE AS SOON AS I GET IT. 

I hope to see everyone next Tuesday!

President, COFF

Cancelled – No Meeting on May 12th

Hello everyone, I hope your fishing has been productive. The bass have been very active lately but are now on their beds. 

As you may know, COFF normally has an outdoor meeting in May before taking a break before our September meeting.

Due to the virus and the Governors ban on gatherings of over 10 a large outdoor gathering is not possible this year. We 

Tried to get a couple of speakers to conduct a zoom meeting but were not successful in getting a commitment. Therefore we 

Will forego our May meeting.

Normally we would not have gatherings or meetings in summer, but this year is not a typical year.

We are working on getting a speaker that we can use Zoom on again and if successful will let everyone know. We are also looking at 

Conducting some small clinics or outings where we can social distance over the next couple of months.   I will let everyone know as these plan 

Progress. If anyone knows of a speaker or one of you would like to do a presentation or has an idea for a presentation, clinic, or outing for the group please let me know.
