May 28th fly tying - Expo Cicada

RSFF monthly fly tying
Tuesday, May 28, 2024 *

7:00 pm
Orvis Perkins-Rowe
7601 Bluebonnet Blvd, Baton Rouge, LA

With this Spring's Brood XiX Cicada emergence still in occurence, we've decided to postpone tying the Murdich Minnow until later this summer.  Instead, Brian Roberts will walk us through tying the Expo Cicada.  

Created by Colorado fly tier Marty Staab, the Expo Cicada is a great imitator of both annual and periodic cicadas. The crew plans to tie up the pattern in two colors, green (annual) and black/orange (periodic).

* Please note: due to the Memorial Day holiday, this month’s fly tying has been moved to Tuesday the 28th.

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.

May 13th meeting - Summertime in the Louisiana Marsh

RSFF monthly general meeting
Monday, May 13, 2024

7:00 pm
LDWF Headquarters
2000 Quail Drive, Baton Rouge, LA

This month, we have guest speaker Connor Voss.  Connor is a saltwater fishing guide who is also two-time winner of "The Sheepy" a prestigious fly fishing sheepshead tournament held each Spring out of Hopedale.  He will share his secrets for successful marsh fishing trips during the hotter months of the year, including his specialty - the sheepshead.  Much of this info may come in handy with the Spring Catch-and-Eat coming up in a few weeks.

As always, meetings are open to the public. For RSFF members unable to attend in person, we broadcast the meeting on Zoom. Be on the lookout for the virtual meeting link in your email.
