Bring one or more of your new or favorite rods to compare to others. This is a great chance to try other rods on the water to see what you like. If you are new to fly fishing come out & learn!

This fall we have:

Doug Taylor Sage elite pro staff. Doug has Rio line kits to help fit your 2 handed switch & spey rods. Doug is an accomplished 2 hand caster & will also offer casting tips.

Jeremy from Dupage Fly Fishing is bringing rods from GLoomis, Sage & Scott.

Ike from Orvis Yorktown is bringing some new Orvis rods.

John Loebach, ISA - I'll bring an Echo Bad Ass Glass 8wt., Orvis Superfine glass 5,6, & 8wt. plus some vintage 70,s Phillipson & Fisher rods.


We’ll also have a raffle of donated gear during lunch to cover expenses.

Masks & social distancing requested. All outside event - hope to see you there.

Timothy take a ride up, see if someone else wants to come with you. It's been a long time since I've visited you central guys to fish or tie. Water is low but its been cool at night for about a week. Fish should be active. For lunch we have some pulled pork BBQ from the Swine cellar. Member Steve Spiz is a cook there, good stuff. Just 4 days from now.

Successful outing with about 25 casting one or two handed rods. A big thank you to Jeremy from Dupage Flyfishing & Doug Taylor Sage Elite pro staff. Its been a year of delayed events so maybe we are taking a step forward. Most stayed through the morning for lunch. It felt normal! Next up is a planting on the Dupe on 9/25.
