Monthly Meeting: Flyfishing the Florida Everglades w/Ed Tamson, Thursday, July 30th, 7pm
At our July General Meeting Ed Tamson will present “Beyond Catching, a Modern Zen Approach” which is all about focusing on the process of living a life that emphasizes the present moment and not just the constant striving for outcomes. The Florida Everglades is an excellent proving ground for the Beyond Catching philosophy.
Ed will provide us with an entertaining and informative evening of learning about fly fishing in the Florida Everglades and will address the challenges of the Florida Everglades, the exotic wildlife & epic fish of the everglades and the equipment & flies to catch them. Details
