December 2018 Meeting and Program - 12-11-18
Board Meeting 6:15pm - Meeting 7:15pm
Is it the Fly or is it the Presentation? 

Is It The Fly or Is It The Presentation?


Bob Haase will present a program entitled “Is It The Fly or Is It The Presentation?”. Some people think that it doesn’t matter what fly you use as long as you present it properly. Others think that you need to match the hatch exactly by using a specific fly. Bob will talk about why both are equally important and also provide some tips to make your tying and fishing more effective. Bring a guest! Program is open to the public, so if you are interesting in trout fishing joint us for the program.  The program starts at 7:15pm at the Fin N Feather in Winneconne.
