Leeville Fly Fishing Weekend has been cancelled

Earlier today, RSFF Saltwater Chair Randy Leonpacher informed all attendees of this weekend's Leeville Fly Fishing Weekend that the event was cancelled due to a tropical disturbance that is expected to become Hurricane Barry by the weekend.

Just an hour ago, Randy made contact with the folks at Boudreaux's Motel in Leeville, the location for the Friday and Saturday evening activities. And where many of the attendees would be staying. They said that the road in Leeville is under water and they are unable to get to the motel!

As of now, there are no plans to reschedule this event. However, the club's 2019 Fall Catch & Eat is scheduled for the last Saturday in October. All those who signed up for the LFFW are encouraged to take part in this event.

July 8th general meeting - new location!

RSFF monthly general meeting
Monday, June 8, 2019
6:30pm - casting practice
7:00pm - meeting begins
Adult Education Building, Broadmoor United Methodist Church
10230 Mollylea Drive, Baton Rouge, LA

Beginning this month, we'll be having our general meetings at a new location - the Adult Education Building at Broadmoor United Methodist. The new facility room has all the audio-visual requirements the club needs.  The decision to move from the LDWF building was based on financial reasons, but still a very difficult one.  

Our fly tying sessions will remain each month at the Independence Library.

For this meeting, our main topic of discussion will be this weekend's annual "Leeville Fly Fishing Weekend", formerly the Grand Isle Fly Fishing Weekend. Saltwater Chair Randy Leonpacher will discuss preparations for fishing speckled trout and redfish along the Highway 1 corridor. We'll also get the latest fishing reports from the area, and best spots for boats, kayaks, and bank fishing. Even if you can't make this weekend, there'll be lots of good info for future trips.
