RSVPs Needed - Dave Hughes' Workshop

Don't Delay - Maximum Capacity of 30!!

“Matching Western Hatches”
A Southern Oregon Fly Fishers Workshop
Featuring Dave Hughes
Wednesday, January 22, 2020
10 AM-3 PM

Madrone Hills Mobile Home Park Club House
8401 Old State Rd
Central Point
Same place where Southern Oregon Fly Tyers meet

This workshop is based on Rick Hafele and Dave’s original workshop “Entomology and
the Artificial Fly”, which became their classic book Western Hatches and eventually
Dave’s book Pocketguide to Western Hatches. It’s taken Dave more than three decades to
gather the color photos of the aquatic insects in all the critical stages of each important
Western hatch. This workshop is worth what it costs just to see the beautiful color photos
of all the insects that trout make a living eating. It covers mayflies, stoneflies, caddisflies,
midges, damselflies, dragonflies, water boatmen, back swimmers, alderflies, scuds,
terrestrials, and even baitfish. Hatches on rivers and streams, plus lakes and ponds, are all
included. Dave explains insect recognition, selecting effective imitations, and how to rig
and present those flies as the natural insects might arrive in front of feeding trout.

Limited to 30 participants
$35.00 per participant

The workshop includes a one hour lunch break. Participants are welcome to bring a sack
lunch. Gold Hill is 2 miles north and has several dining opportunities. Coffee and
bottled water will be available at the workshop.

To register contact John Smith at 801-710-2515 or jlsutah@gmail.com

Southern Oregon Fly Fishers Annual Auction - November 9th

Hey Rogue Fly Fishers!  It is a little more than 2 weeks away until we, Southern Oregon Fly Fishers, hold our annual fund raising auction and dinner on November 9th. This is our annual fund raiser and all money raised goes to support the club’s next year expenses. Just to name a few, it goes to pay for all the speakers we bring in which not includes the speakers’ fee, but also their travel and lodging. Then there are the donations that we make to conservation programs and organizations as well as the scholarship we offer yearly to a student at Oregon State who is studying fisheries management. Among other things are the monthly dinners that the club subsidizes over the actual cost, and also the many other costs that are incurred just to run the club.

We would like to invite you to attend!   It's always a fun event and the more people that attend the auction dinner, the more funds that can be raised from the oral auction, the silent auction and the cup raffle. Right now we have a bare minimum  of 79 people attending, we need 41 more attendees to have a full house. Just remember this is an event that you can bring your spouse or significant other to, perhaps your brother-in-law or your next door neighbor or your co-worker.

Time is growing short as John Smith, the auction dinner coordinator, needs to get his dinner count to Grants Pass Golf Course in by November 1st. Let’s make this auction a rousing success and let’s fill up those empty spots. Contact Smith at 801 710-2515 or email him at jlsutah@gmail.com and let him know that you’re coming and how many people that you will be bringing, followed by a check for $30.00 per person attending.
