October Outing: Redding CA, Oct 16-19
Northern California has lots of great waters and we’ll attempt to fish it all. Contact Pablo Grabiel or Evan Morgan right away to let them know you’re going (or even thinking about going), especially if you think you’re interested in a guide so they can make arrangements. Pre-trip meeting will be Wednesday, 10/8 at 7pm.
Beginner Casting Class: Tuesdays Sept 9 – Oct 14 at 7pm
If you’re new to fly casting or need to improve your casting skills, be sure to attend our annual fly casting class led by our group of very experienced casters. You’ll learn all the basic casts required to catch fish, including the roll cast, lay down and pickup, change of direction, basic mends, and possibly even the single haul. We’re moving the class to the fall as preparation for our On The Water Clinic and club outings that start in January. The class is free and open to all. Orientation is 9/9 at 7pm.
On The River Clinic: Wednesdays Oct 22 – Nov 12th at 7pm, Outing Nov 15-16
This is our best overall class of the year. You will be introduced to the equipment needed, entomology, stream structure, casting applications, short and long line presentation, reading the water, fly selection, how to organize your fly box and basic knots. You will then take the knowledge you have gained and apply it to a Lower Owen’s weekend outing where you will receive individual instructions from river wise instructors. The class is free but restricted to club members. If you’re not a member it’s not too late to join.
On The Salt Clinic: Thursday, Oct 23 at 7pm, Local Surf Outing Nov 8
