With Spring and days on a trout stream foremost in our minds, join us as members John McLain and Todd Peters give their very entertaining presentation covering everything you need to know to fish Soft Hackled Wet Flies for trout.
They'll cover tactics, techniques and gear, as well as the flies that have been overlooked for too long as dry flies and nymphing dominated our sport. The tackle overview will cover the rods, leaders, weight, and hook care that makes soft hackle and wet fly fishing more effective.
Date: March 29
Time: Doors open 4:30, Dinner @ 6:30 pm
Place: Host Resort, Rte 30, Lancaster
Our 35th annual banquet will be held at the Host once again. We'll be moving inside the main building, but there will still be Vocal Auctions, Silent Auctions, Bucket Raffles and Door Prizes throughout the evening and of course the $1000 Super Fund Ticket. Plan to attend and bring some friends for a fun evening.
