Website Update – 13 April 2014
As you have discovered, the web site is back up and running. I am still working on getting the email system back. I have to build the email system from scratch, which also entails securing the system and this is taking a little while longer than I had thought. After I get the email restored, I will implement the email list and you should start receiving email updates as before.
I thank you for your patience — Bruce.

April Outing: Santa Ana River, Saturday, 4/19, 5pm
We’re staying close to home this month and will be fishing the Santa Ana River. It’s small water fishing so bring your light gear. It does involve some hiking so make sure you’re up for the task. Pre-trip meeting will be Wednesday, 4/16 at 7pm (note: this is the Wednesday immediately prior to the trip). We will meet at the Mill Creek Ranger Station on Hy. 38 in Mentone at 7:30 a.m. and depart at 8:00. Contact Jim Garvey for details.

Nooner Lunch: Wednesday, 4/16, Noon
Join us for lunch and a break from your day. Held the third Wednesday of the month, this is a great way to meet new members and enjoy a good meal in the company of others. Bring a desert if you can.
Fly Tying Forum: Wednesday’s at 7pm
We’ve started a weekly fly tying forum to provide members with a chance to learn new techniques and flies or to just show up and tie what you like/need. This week will feature soft hackles. Contact Howard Uller for details. This is in addition to our annual beginner’s fly tying class.
