Fly of the Month February 2013: Keta Rose

Sorry, this month's FOTM will be short and sweet.

Basically, if you are not aware of the fly the Keta Rose, you should be. Especially for the next few months.

Here is the recipe, but I will leave it to the creator Doug Rose to tell you the thinking behind the fly.

The Native Fish Society to inform us in February


This month we have guest speakers from the Native Fish Society.



Mike Moody is the executive director, and Mark Sherwood is the River Steward Program director. They will be discussing conservation issues and efforts. For those of you unfamiliar with the organization, this is a great opportunity to find out what's being done to help our waters. Guided by the best available science, Native Fish Society advocates for the recovery of wild, native fish and promotes the stewardship of the habitats that sustain them

Hope to see you there!
