A new month is upon us.  Here’s a look ahead at what Red Stick Fly Fishers has on the docket for July.

RSFF General Meeting

Where: LDWF Headquarters, 2000 Quail Dr, Baton Rouge, LA
Topic: Tenkara fishing with Dustin Flint

Join us as RSFF Member, Dustin Flint, will be sharing his experience with Tenkara rods.  A 400-year old japanese style of fly fishing, Tenkara has grown in popularity among American anglers in recent years as a means of targeting trout, warmwater and, even, saltwater species of gamefish.  Don’t miss out on the opportunity to learn more about this unique style of angling.

Where: Bayou Manchac Park (19010 Jefferson Hwy Baton Rouge)

Join RSFF Casting Chair, Felipe Martinez, and RSFF Conservation Chair, Robinson Almeida, as they lead the RSFF crew through a morning of casting and conservation at BREC’s Bayou Manchac Park.  The park boasts a brand new kayak launch, so consider bringing along your canoe, kayak or pirogue if you have one.

"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
