New This Week

Help! Send me info about any events for flyfishers.

Please Note: Website will be updated Friday nights. Changes and addditions need to reach me at johnk15@attt.net by Friday noon.


The October Fly of the Month is tied to the November 19th outing to the delta. We will be tying Bob Clouser’s Clouser Minnow, probably the most successful salt water streamer pattern ever developed. The fly is super easy to tie and hopefully, each participant will be able to tie at least three of these deadly weapons during the Fly of the Month tying meet. Jerry Neuburger, a club member and delta fly fishing guide, will be the instructor for the session. The participation cost will be $5 for the evening. The class will take place on the fourth Wednesday of the month, October 26th at the Oak Grove Park Nature Center. Start time will be a prompt 6:30pm and we should be out of the building by 8:30. Mike Nicholson will be on hand as well to assist the newer tyers.If you are a new member this is great time to get to know your fellow club members. Don’t worry about the skill level. Help available.

In The News


The October Potluck was a great time. As usual, more food than we could eat.  Our speaker was Bill Beckett of Headwaters Kayak in Lodi. He brought two well equiped kayaks to demonstrate what is available for fishing. If you haven't looked a fishing kayaks in the last five years, go and visit their shop. These boats are much better than what was exhibited at the last Fly Fishing Show.

The October meeting is supposed to be the time to nominate and vote in officers for next year.  Happily, we will have new President, Jerry Neuberger, and Vice-president, Cliff Hoover.

We also have a new member of the board of directors, Gary Techlenberg, thanks Gary.  Many Thanks to outgoing President Gil Parker for his efforts during last two years.

The October outing was fishing for rainbow trout in Redding, Ca. The weather was sunny, the river flow was just right and the fish were hungry and fat. Everyone had a good time and caught fish, some up to 22 inches. We had a nice club dinner at Olive Garden Saturday night. Thanks to Bruce Rollans for organizing a great outing.

Our November 9th meeting will feature Robert Tamson's program on Fly Fishing the Everglades. The meeting will begin at 7:00 PM at John R. Williams School. Robert Tamson’s program at the November meeting will be on the amazing fly fishing opportunities of the wild and scenic Everglades National Park in Southwest Florida.
This presentation will include the Everglades National Park, the 10,000 Islands National Wildlife Refuge and other flyfishing hot spots of Southwest Florida.

Robert has gained his experience in these saltwater destinations by spending the last several winters living with his brother, Ed Tamson, who lives in Naples Florida and is another avid fly angler. He will share with us the when, where and how to fish for Tarpon, Snook and Redfish.

As a native Californian, Robert has been flinging flies at fish since age 11. Currently and over the last 15 years, He has held the position as Director of both the Wilderness Unlimited Fly Fishing School and the Becoming an Outdoors Woman of California fly fishing programs.
Now retired from his real job as a Real Estate Broker, He puts in over 200 days on the water annually in both fresh and salt water from California, Montana, Florida and beyond. This will surely be a great presentation for any fly angler who is considering a fly fishing trip to Florida!

The November outing is on the Outings tab.

The outing chairman and interested members are making up the schedule for next year.  If you have suggestions or are willing to be a fishmeister for one of the outings, contact Al Smatsky, Jerry Neuberger, Bob Fujimara, or Steve Von Berg. All help is greatly appreciated.

The Fall Trout Bout at Oak Grove Park is coming up. More information on this event next week.
