President's Message

Dan Rach

Dan Rasch

Thanks to everyone who made it to the March meeting on a soggy Thursday night at our temporary location at the church. Jeff Trigg had an excellent presentation and I hope to fish the Niangua with him soon.  The smallmouth discussion was a nice alternative to our usual trout-based talks. His story about the river levels is so true, as we have the opposite problem this year. Our upcoming April 25 Meeting is back at the usual spot in Greensfelder Recreation Complex in Queeny Park.
As I write this, our club is scattered between the Sow Bug convention in Arkansas and the Spring River outing.  The rain slowed down the Spring River and the guiding was cut back, but our members still had some successes. 
Reminder, Wetland for Kids is Saturday, April 6 at Busch Wildlife. We are still looking for volunteers. Our new (sold out) Taneycomo trip is later this month and is followed by the Montauk outing is May 17-19.  
Thanks to Jim Gera and Dianne Ellis for helping at Cabela’s for Ladies Day Out in late March and teaching casting skills. We only had just a few that participated, but we also spoke to others and handed out a few cards.

Dan Rasch, President, Ozark Fly Fishers

Terry and Roxanne Wilson

Think fishing a pond is easy? Not all ponds are created equal, and fly-fishing success on ponds is dependent upon understanding what makes a good fishing pond and how to best take advantage of the circumstances, whatever they may be. Illustrations and photos enrich the viewer’s knowledge of where, when, and how to target bass, bluegill, and other species in public or private ponds and lakes. Fly selections and presentations for bass and bluegill are discussed.
Terry and Roxanne Wilson are regular contributors to the Fly Fishers International magazine. Their most recent book, The Bluegill Diaries: A Fly Fishing Chronicle, was published in January of 2018. They also authored Crappie Fly Fishing: A Seasonal Approach (2013), Smallmouth Bass Fly Fishing: A Practical Guide (2007), Largemouth Bass Fly Fishing: Beyond the Basics (2001), and Bluegill Fly Fishing & Flies (1999). The Wilsons are ProStaff members of Sage, Redington, and Rio, and their original patterns are distributed by Orvis. They were presented the Dr. James Henshall Award for their many contributions to warmwater fly fishing by Fly Fishers International in 2017, and named Fly Fishers Educators of the Year in 2014.
