December Meeting

Go West, Young Man!

 Fly Fishing the San Juan River with Ed Lombardo

You don’t want to miss this one! After fishing out West on the premier fly fishing rivers of Montana, Wyoming and Idaho for more than 30 years, Ed Lombardo decided to try something different! Having heard good things about the San Juan River in New Mexico, with its prolific hatches and large Rainbow Trout, he decided it was time for a change! He reports that this river has some of the best dry fly action he’s seen, despite the fact that it’s better known for nymph fishing with small midges. Ed’s presentation will be destination information on water anatomy, how to fish this river, what tackle, fly choices, and rod, reel and line choices for this wonderful fishery. He will also cover flights, vehicle travel, lodging, fly shops, restaurants and total trip cost. And, the fish are BIG as they range from 16”-20” with the species being 70% Rainbows, and 30% Browns. He (and I) highly recommend this fishery when thinking of new places to fish. So come enjoy a great presentation and evening with our own, Ed Lombardo!


December Meeting

Along with Ed’s presentation, our December meeting will also be our Annual Christmas Fly Tackle Sale!   We invite you all to bring unwanted fishing tackle and sell, trade or barter your goods with others. Here’s how it works…

  • Bring tackle tagged with your name & price
  • Find a spot at a table & display your stuff
  • All proceeds are yours

I hope to see you there! We will have some coffee and Christmas cookies – and….holiday liquid refreshments are always available from Jim, our resident barkeeper.

Come join us for what should be a fun evening
