Big fish of any species can be caught on fly.  Check this photo of Dave Coignet with his 2nd place state record Speckled Trout in the Fly Rod Division.  It weighed a whopping 8 pounds, 11 ounces!    

For our final general meeting of 2022, Brian Roberts will give us a presentation on "Louisiana Fly Fishing Records".  The state fish records are maintained by the Louisiana Outdoors Writers Association (LOWA), with top 10 listings for each species in both Rod-and-Reel and Fly Divisions. There have been recent changes in applying for a record listing.  Brian will explain how the new process works, what to do when catching a potential record fish, and what some current opportunities are for fly records.
