July 24th fly tying - The Rio Getter

RSFF monthly fly tying
Monday, June 26, 2023

Adult Education Building
Broadmoor United Methodist Church
10230 Mollylea Drive, Baton Rouge, LA

This month Chris Williams will lead us in tying the Rio Getter.  A creation of Matt Bennett, this fly has become a go-to pattern for Rio anglers on south and central Texas waters, and works just as well for those in New Orleans metro lakes and canals.  It's also a good bream pattern as well.

Our fly tying sessions are open to the public, and beginners are welcome. Bring your vise and tools, or just watch. For those without tying tools, the club has some for use during these sessions.

July 19th Flies & Flights

This month's Flies & Flights will be on Wednesday, July 19th. Location is Rally Cap Brewing (11212 Pennywood Ave, Baton Rouge, LA) starting at 7pm.

Chris will have some materials on hand to tie a few simple beetle and grasshopper patterns. But as always, we encourage everyone to bring some materials to tie their own favorite hopper/dropper combos or other materials to tie whatever flies you please.

As always, be sure to bring your vise and some materials.  We'll have plenty of tools, vises and materials on hand for those looking to learn.

F&F is not affiliated with the Red Stick club, but was hatched from the minds of RSFF members, and as such all are invited. This is an independent collective of tiers just looking to tie and enjoy a social gathering with some fine brews. Anyone can come and join in. As always, feel free to bring some materials to tie whatever pattern you please.

July 10th general meeting - Colorado Trout

RSFF monthly general meeting
Monday, July 10, 2023

7:00 pm - meeting
6:15 pm - casting practice
Louisiana Dept. of Wildlife & Fisheries Headquarters
2000 Quail Drive, Baton Rouge, LA

This month Brian Roberts and David Rogers will present on "Fly Fishing Colorado Streams for Trout". They'll be focusing on trout fishing the front range between Lyons to Fort Collins. This area has a plethora of streams that are generally not crowded and multiple species can be caught in the same day. Rainbows, Browns, Brookies, Grayling & Tiger trout.  

Joe Conachen will also be collecting a list of members who need a name tag. It's been a year since the last order, and we have some from that order that have NOT been picked up. We encourage members to wear their name tags to promote comradery!

As always, general meetings are open to the public and guests are welcome.
