RSFF February Activities

A new month is upon us.  Here’s a look ahead at what RSFF has on the docket for the month of February!

Sack Up for Clean Waters
Saturday, February 3rd,  9am - til

* This event has been cancelled due to inclement weather *

"Our love of fly fishing is not just about uncovering amazing locations; it’s also about taking responsibility for our environment. As our consumption increase so does the litter that finds its way onto our streets, into our infrastructure, ending in our waterways. RSFF is committed to educating and advocating for responsible practices to keep all of our favorite spots pristine.” -Conservation Chair, Robinson Almeida

RSFF Casting Clinic
Saturday, February 10th, 9am - til
Where: Perkins Rd Community Park

Details: Join RSFF Casting Chair, Felipe Martinez, as he leads the RSFF crew through the FFI Copper and Silver Casting Challenges.

For those interested in having their casting stroke recorded, we’ll have a video station setup as part of the event.

General Meeting
Monday, February 19th, 7:00pm - til
Where: LDWF Headquarters (2000 Quail Dr, Baton Rouge, LA)

Topic: Redeye Bass on the Fly

This month Alabama Native, Dr. Matthew Lewis, will be joining us remotely to discuss Redeye Bass on the Fly.  Dr. Lewis has a Master’s in Fisheries and a PhD in Genetics from the Auburn University, but is best known in the fly fishing community for his book, Fly Fishing for Redeye Bass, and his work co-founding the Redeye Bass Slam.

** For those unable to attend in person, be on the lookout for a link to the virtual meeting as the date approaches **

Flies & Flights
Wednesday, February 21st, 7pm - 9pm
Where: Rally Cap Brewing (11212 Pennywood Ave, Baton Rouge, LA)

Featured Pattern: Meat Whistle

Join us at Rally Cap Brewing on Wednesday, February 21st, as we tie up John Barr’s Meat Whistle in preparation for some springtime Largemouth.

F&F is an independent collective of tiers just looking to tie and enjoy a social gathering with some fine brews. While not affiliated with Red Stick, it was hatched by a few club members as an alternative to a traditional meeting environment. Everyone is welcome!

RSFF Fly Tying Session

Featured Pattern: The Pillow Talk

Join us Monday, February 26th, as Tristan Welch teaches us to tie the Pillow Talk, a bonefish fly developed by Alphonse Island's Wayne Haselau. Somewhat different than most bonefish flies you've probably fished but, we've added this one into the monthly rotation for one simple reason. It's a powerhouse fish fooler.
