Our guest speaker this month is Mike Pease, owner of Mike Pease Adventures and founder of the Feather River Fly Fishing School in Plumas County near Graeagle. He grew up fishing for trout and steelhead on many of the well known streams of northern California and later honed his skills with many masters of the north state in the Redding area. He combines a career as a Stanford trained educator with a lifetime of fishing and adventure to provide a unique approach to the pedagogy of teaching others to fly fish.
His presentation: “How to Survive a Mid-life crisis with Notes from the North Fork of the Feather River” – will explore key life lessons learned as he navigated his way through a mid-life crisis that ultimately led him to become a fly fishing guide and founder of a fly fishing school. He will also share commentary which appeared in the October 2017 issue of California Fly Fisher.
February is National Heart month. Let’s keep our hearts in great fishing condition. With that in mind, remember your Valentine on February 14th!
GBF’s Annual Dinner on March 17th is fast approaching and you want to be sure to join in the fun. Ken Hanley, Hall of Fame fly fishing writer and photographer, will be our special guest speaker. Enjoy a delicious dinner from Buca Di Beppo and, of course, participate in the many raffles and silent auctions.
A ticket costs $40 and will get you an evening of great food and entertainment, plus lots of silent auction items, and a gigantic raffle with a grand prize of a custom-built Sage 1 fly rod and reel valued at $1200 (thank you Larry Lee). Lots of non-fishing raffle and auction items for the ladies as well and, special this year, four $50 cash door prizes just for the ladies! Sign up today at GBF store.
This time of year we are busy at getting our fishout schedule finalized. If you have a favorite stream or lake to share, please make a suggestion or better yet step up and lead a fishout to your favorite location.
Jim Holmes’ fly tying jam will be February 20. It starts at 6:30 pm and is held at the activity center, the same location as our monthly meeting.

“Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not Me!
I want people to know why I look this way.
I’ve traveled a long way, and some of the roads were not paved.”
