Message from Hannah Sohl

#################################################################################

The Rogue Flyfishers have been working with other groups that have the same goals in protecting the environment and especially when it involves water quality in our rivers.  This has worked very well for both parties as it leverages our resources, effectiveness and our impact on the task at hand.  Hannah Sohl and Rogue Climate is one of those groups.  Hannah was very effective and resourceful in the multi-year effort to stop suction dredging.  Now she is hard at work to stop the LNG pipeline.  This is a copy and paste from Rogue Climate.  Hope to see you there.

Tom,
Join communities across the region on Sunday, June 3 from 4pm-6pm at Southern Oregon University to hear from and show your support for communities fighting for indigenous sovereignty and against new fossil fuel pipeline development.

Fly Casting Classes Resume!


Fly Casting Classes

At Hedrick School

Have Resumed

 
 

Rogue Flyfishers Club member John MacDiarmid, who is a FFI Certified Fly Casting Instructor, assisted by club members, Tom Collett and Bob Pierce, will once again be providing free fly casting classes at Hedrick Middle School, 1501 E. Jackson in Medford each Monday evening throughout the summer months.  The classes are held every Monday at 6:00 p.m. except those days when a holiday falls on Monday or there is bad weather.  The last evening will be September 10th.  The classes are an excellent way for beginning fly fishers to be introduced to the techniques of fly casting and they also provide an opportunity for experienced fly fishers to hone their skills through a little practice.  People interested in attending one or more sessions should bring a favorite one-handed fly rod, reel, line and leader for practicing on the lawn.  If a person does not have immediate access to their own gear, the club can provide them with it when they arrive for the classes.  The classes are not only an opportunity for instruction by excellent instructors, but also an opportunity to catch up with fellow anglers about all of the elements of fly fishing.
