Thursday, May 11th is our annual Member’s Night. This night is a great opportunity for members, particularly new members, to attend the meeting and see firsthand all of the options our club offers. There will be tables around the room, with each table offering a different display showing each of the club’s functions. Displays such as Casting, Knot Tying, Fly Tying, Fishmaster, Tenkara, Spey Casting, Conservation, Golden Trout Program, Fishouts, and the Classroom Egg Program are just a few of the Club Activities. We hope to see you all there.
The Pyramid Lake outing is scheduled for May 5-7, and at last count over 30 members had signed up making this our most popular fishout. Anglers on Pyramid face the anomaly of hoping for windy, cloudy, cold, rainy weather that seems to improve the fishing geometrically versus the comfort of fair weather and a subsequently lower catch rate. Check out the website under “Fishout” for details, and contact Eric Palmer if you have further questions.
Our May general meeting is Members’ Night with an open house format where individual members with expertise in different activities such as fly tying, single handed and double handed casting, Tenkara, line construction, knot tying, and much more will be on hand to answer questions and offer suggestions. This is a good opportunity for picking the brains of experts!
