Monday, December 9 meeting - Christmas banquet, Elections
The next meeting of the Red Stick Fly Fishers will be on Monday, December 9, at the LDWF building on Quail Drive in Baton Rouge. Time is 7:00pm - 9:00pm.
The December meeting is our annual Christmas Banquet and BOD elections for 2014. In keeping with club tradition, this is a pot luck event - everyone is encouraged to bring a dish or supplement. You may bring anything you like, but please inform Greg Brignac of your intentions by sending him an email.
For example, we certainly would welcome two members bringing turkey. But we would like to avoid having everyone bring meat and no veggies and no desserts. Please check the Red Stick Fly Fishers FORUM on warmfly.com for a list of committed items. That should help your decision.
Also, in lieu of real food, snacks and soft drinks will suffice.
Nominations for 2014 Board of Directors
Members interested in holding one of the 11 positions on the BOD should contact Greg Brignac with your interest. Positions include: President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, Fly Tying, Education, Events, Warmwater, Coldwater, Saltwater, Membership.

Rainbeaux trout coming to BR area
Sometime between now and Christmas Day, BREC will do their annual stocking of rainbow trout in select ponds throughout East Baton Rouge Parish. Also new for this year, Ascension Parish will stock the pond at Lamar-Dixon with rainbow trout. There's also been rumor that Livingston might get in the act and stock the ponds at North Park in Denham Springs, but no confirmation on that. The best flies early on will be black and olive woolybuggers. But once the trout get acclimated to the natural food items, a wide selection of flies will work, including parachute adams and black gnats.
