Unless there will be no program offered in a particular month, this event is typically held on the 2nd Saturday of each month following the free public casting lessons that month. Attendance may be limited to the maximum seating available for a particular program, so please register in advance of the event.
David Dempsey, long-time Northern California fly fishing instructor, former guide and developer of several closely guarded fly patterns, will speak on "Baetidae, the Small Minnow Mayflies" on Saturday, February 8 starting at 1PM. This is a presentation that is guaranteed to be anything but "dry", as David will cover this insects' life-cycle, effective fly patterns to mimic them, and techniques for how and where to fish these important flies. Don't miss this information-filled discussion that focuses on two of the most important insects in this group, the ubiquitous "Blue Wing Olive" and his favorite stillwater insect, the "Callibaetis". These insects are the basis for patterns that should be in every angler's fly box. Attendees are welcome to stay after the presentation for some tying demos and further questions and answers.
All participants are requested to register for this event beforehand (whether or not there is any limit shown on the registration for this event) in order to gauge the expected size of the audience.
