December 2017 Meeting and Newsletter

Greetings Rhody Fly Rodders & Friends,

Please find enclosed below, a copy (PDF) of the RFR December newsletter.
This month is our Annual Fly Tying Expo.
We have this event every year in December where the club gets together, enjoys some holiday cheer, and ties flies for our favorite charity. We then take these flies and sell them at our meetings and at the different fishing shows we attend. Last year we raised $500. for ‘Project Healing Waters’, a national organization the teaches wounded & disabled veterans how to fly fish and tie flies.
For this coming year our chosen charity is ‘Reel Recovery’, another national organization, that offers retreats for men recovering from all sorts of cancer. They provide a safe, reflective environment of fly fishing instruction and tying, plus provide information about cancer related resources, all at no cost. Truly a worthy cause!
We will have free bottled water, soft drinks, popcorn, pretzels, Christmas cookies and coffee for you while you ‘Tie for Charity’.
We’ll also will have bucket raffles and a nice door prize. Of course, liquid libations are also available from our barkeep, Jim!
So, come join us, bring your fly tying equipment, and tie some flies for a great cause, or come watch and learn from the experts.
Wishing you and your families a wonderful Holiday season – Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah & and a Happy New Year!
