Gate Closure Time Change
During the winter months, the Granite Bay State Park will close and lock its entrance gate at 7:00 pm. Our general meetings at the Club House will be affected by this policy, so please be sure to be inside the park before 7:00 pm, or you will miss the meeting.
Our speaker this month, Tim Fox, has been immersed in the world of fly fishing since the age of 14 when he began tying flies commercially. That launched him on a career of managing fly shops, guiding, teaching schools and developing innovative commercial fly patterns for Umpqua. His Fox Poopah pattern has become one of the classic go-to flies on NorCal streams.
His presentation will focus on his thought process in developing a pattern from conception to the finished fly and fishing it in Northern California waters.
On January 20, GBF conducted its first Meet and Greet for new members. Twenty-one members who have joined in the last year or so, met at the Round Table Pizza in Roseville, along with 18 more established members who served as mentors. We had individual introductions, described many of the Club’s activities and events, and the feedback was that it was a welcoming gesture that we should do more often. The newcomers have a variety of skills and talents that they are bringing into the club – and almost two thirds have signed up for the Annual Dinner and Fundraiser.
All of us can make an effort to make the Club more welcoming! When you come to the meetings, please display your name badge on your shirt or jacket where it can be seen, and when you see an unfamiliar name and face, introduce yourself! “I haven’t met you before, my name is______? You’ll be surprised how easy it is to do after the first time!
The Annual Dinner and Fundraiser is drawing near – Saturday, March 18. The funds raised at this event is what makes the Club go round – please participate. I would really like to see you at the dinner, but even if you can’t attend, you can still buy raffle tickets, or perhaps make a donation. The Auction and Raffle have some great items – trips, artwork, rods, reels, clothing apparel, tools, wine, gift cards, and much more. And don’t forget, two Grand Prizes, a Sage One rod/reel kit, and an Orvis Helios rod. A two-dollar ticket is all it takes for a chance to win one!
