November Meeting Reminder

Monthly Meeting Tuesday, November 20, 2018 at 6:30PM

Please join us this month for a fun night of Fly Tying!
We will be tying flies for our charity this year,
‘Reel Recovery.’ This is an organization that brings men
suffering with cancer together for therapeutic fly tying and
fly fishing, where they bond and share information with medical personnel, and with each other.

Come and tie, or learn from 5 member experts, and share in
a great evening of information and conversation!

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
