Received this from Ted Bernard today,

I just read the post by Mark K about the Chris Helm article in Fly Fisherman on the Web.




On the behalf of DRiFT, we would like to invite the ISA BassBuggers to the March 4 meeting of DRiFT. Chris Helm will be the guest speaker and the topic will be warm water flies using deer hair.




The meeting will be at room M165 A/G at COD starting at 7 PM.




Please announce this to the group. We would like to have a full room for Chris.

Great! Also noticed some other interesting speakers. sounds like a good group. Catchy acronym for a name too.


Club Meetings

DRiFT meets every Tuesday at 7pm from Sept - May at The College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn.


During a typical meeting one of our members will demonstrate how to tie a fly pattern or cover a specific technique. Several times a year we have guest presenters who share their knowledge and expertise.

Right you are Mark! We have 6 members at least that are also Drift members. Guests are welcome & Bob Rung (2/19) is a must attend in my opinion, he is the District fishieries biologist for the DNR for our region. The topic is our annual water willow planting that we fund & heavily support with manpower. The other 2 volunteer groups are Drift & Freinds of the Fox. Most of us know Craig Reindeau, he will be at the Blowout tying at the beginning as well as Monday nite(2/25) with the Bassbuggers, Tuesday with Drift & Thursday at One More Cast / thursday nite jam (7pm start). Lots of interesting stuff to stave off the midwinter blues. I really hope to see some ISA faces at one or more of these!

How did this go? I could not make it.


I'm sure he had some interesting things to say.



He didn't say anything, because he had to cancel due to the heavy snow storms over Indiana & Ohio yesterday.

I drove out after work to see Chris, the deerhair master, ran into Michael T and found out about the cancellation. We both left and went home.


That's life.
