Fly Tying Event For Charity

November Meeting

Tuesday, November 19th at 6:30pm. Our November meeting will be our ‘Annual Fly Tying Event’ for one of our favorite charities, ‘Project Healing Waters,’ a national organization that takes wounded and disabled vets to retreats located around the country, and teaches them fly tying and fly fishing, and also offers  addition support for their recovery process. Please join us as we tie flies to sell at the fishing shows  we attend and at all of our winter meetings.  Each year we do this in support of our  favorite charities and generally raise  about $500 per season which we then  present to our chosen charity. If you want to learn how to tie flies and learn how to fish them, please join us as we will have many members of Rhody Fly Rodders, some of the best tyers on the East Coast and they would be glad to get you started. So, come tie for charity and learn some fly patterns that will catch fish! As our chief fly tyer, Armand Courchaine says, “after you tie one of our flies, all you need then  is to add some water to catch a fish!” We will also have a brief update and explanation of The Atlantic States  Marine Fisheries Commission (ASMFC) recent decision to go with a 28” – 35” slot limit on Striped Bass, presented by our good friend, Peter Jenkins from  ‘Saltwater Edge.’ We’ll have plenty of free coffee, soft drinks and bottled water, with snacks of popcorn, & pretzels. Come have some fun and share some conversation with some friendly and knowledgeable people! See you there, bring a friend, bring two!

October 2019 Meeting

It’s back – ‘Pizza Time Kickoff!’ We will start at 6:30 with pizza, then after we eat and catch up with friends, we will have a DVD showing of ‘Kiss The Water.’ This is the story of the legendary, Megan Boyd, salmon fly tyer extraordinaire as she twirls feathers and fur, silver and gold into tiny ‘works of art.’ It’s about fly tying and salmon fishing on the northern coast of Scotland. This is a magical film where the art of fly tying and the passion of salmon fishing meet. I think you will like this. A bit slow, but beautifully done and very historic & educational! Jim, our resident barkeeper, will have plenty of liquid refreshments to go with that pizza. So, come join us, have a piece of pizza and catch up with your friends and share some of your summer fishing experiences. Also, there will be some great bucket raffles. All are welcome.

More info in the attached newsletter.
Hope you can make it.

Cancelled!!!

Rhody Fly Rodders Fishing / Cookout Meeting
Narrow River, (Sprague Bridge) Rt 1A, Narragansett, RI 
Tuesday, Aug. 7th. 
Due to many factors, the Rhody Fly Rodders Fishing/Cookout Meeting for this Tues. Aug. 7th is cancelled!
 
We decided this because of the extreme heat (95º) we will be having on Tuesday, and the anticipated heavy presence of swimmers 
and kayakers at the Sprague Bridge – plus the parking places there will be limited at best – added to that will be warm water temps and no fish.
And from all reports, the fishing has not been good these past few weeks anyway.
 
So, we will have our next Cookout/Fishing meeting on Thursday, Sept 13th. Followed by another on Thursday, Sept. 27th.
 
Sorry about this, but I would hate to just go through the motions, wasting time and effort, and have a disappointing evening. 
 
like to think ‘Quality,’ not ‘Quantity’. I think we’ll have a better time next month than fight through these discomforts!
 
See you next month!
 
Cheers!!!!
 
Peter
