Fall is here and fall fishing in the parks is usually good as the summer crowds are gone. The problem is you only have two weeks of park fishing left for the season. The good news is winter catch and release begins Thursday, November 9th, and this can be the most enjoyable time of the year. As we have done for the past 27 years, the club will have a catch and release opening weekend outing at Bennett Spring. This is our largest outing of the year. It is always a good time to share with others in the club. If you come, make sure to come to the meeting room at Sand Springs in the evening for fly tying and storytelling. We had two Fly Tiers of the Long Table tying at the FFI Southern Council Conclave this year. Mike Swederska and Al Bourisaw were tying some of the smaller flies to be found in the whole place. Streamers (up to 8” long) are the hot item right now, and it showed by amount of people tying them. You don’t find any 1-2” woolly buggers in this crowd.
Some Board of Director updates: Our Secretary, Dan Ehlmann, had back surgery at the beginning of the month and will be laid up for a while. Dan Rasch will be taking over Dan Ehlmann’s duties. John Tymony, our Director of Communications, has taken a job in Washington, DC. Jake Voss will be taking his duties. If you have anything to summit to Jake for the Member Newsletter, please send it to OzarkNewsletter@gmail.com. We are still looking for persons to fill the Presidents and Vice President positions for the club. If you are interest in knowing what the job entails, please contact me.
