Hope everyone had great holiday season. It has been cold, but a few are still getting out to fish. Winter can be the best time to get outdoors if you are equipped to handle the weather. Fishing always seems to be good and the sights and sounds really stand out. Our end of the catch and release season outing is coming up in Feb. This is a great social event no matter how the weather turns out for the weekend. Look for more info on the FYAO outing in this newsletter. As for outings, we will offer a new spring outing on the North Fork of the White River in April. Info on this should be listed in the outings section of this newsletter.

The club will have winter classes this year co-hosted with the St Louis Co. Parks and Recreation Dept. We will teach an” introduction into fly fishing” with coverage of equipment, rigging and technics that everyone can pick up something new or a different way of doing something. The class will be on “intro to fly tying”. This class will start someone on the road to learning the tools and methods of tying your own flies. Fly tying is more enjoyable than fishing to many people. All tools and materials will be furnished. The fishing class will be offered on two separate nights at Queeny Park, in the  room we have our monthly meetings at, on Jan. 9 and again on Jan. 16. Tying classes will be on Jan. 19 and Feb. 6. All classes will be from 7-9 pm. There is a $8.00 fee and advanced registration is required. Call 314-615-8472.

If you were not at the last meeting, we announced the Board of Directors for 2017. I want to thank those who stepped up to fill these positions. The list The Board of Direcotors of the Ozark Fly Fishers will show the person’s name, position and phone number. If you have a question on a particular subject, give them a call or feel free to call me anytime. If I don’t have the answer, I will find one even if I have to make it up.
