Here is the May Garden Hackle. Enjoy!
If possible please print and complete the attached member profile. We’ll collect them at tomorrow’s meeting.
This outing has become a bit of a tradition for us at South Sound Fly Fishers. The last two times we have done this outing, we all had outstanding times.
The plan is the same as before. If you would like to come, sign up at the general meeting on Tuesday, or email Ryan at [email protected]
Even if you decide to come spur of the moment thats okay too. We will all meet up in Hoodsport at the Hoodsport Grocery store. We will need to park a few cars on the South side of the store, and car pool up because there is limited space up by the lake. This lake is only fishable by a floating device such as a pontoon boat, float tube or small lightweight car topper boat. It is a bit of a hike into the lake so make sure it is light enough to carry.
For more info on the lake and how to fish it, here are a few references

The January Garden Hackle said that the meeting was on the 25th. Well, it is not!
Please DO NOT show up for the meeting on the 25th. We held the meeting on the 15th (the 3rd Tuesday of the month.)
Sorry for any confusion.
As we approach the holiday season, now would be the time to be thinking of gifts for your children, grandchildren and any other youth you think might like to learn about fly fishing and conservation. To qualify for The Academy, the applicant, boy or girl, 12-16 years old, must write an essay explaining why they would like to attend The Academy. A letter of recommendation is also required, written by their science teacher or school counselor. The dates for the WSCFFF and WCTU sponsored event are Sunday, June 23 – Saturday June 29th. The weeklong event is hosted by the Olympia TU Chapter, South Sound Fly Fishing Club and the Puget Sound Fly Fishers of Tacoma. The Academy will be held again at The Gwinwood Conference Center on Hicks Lake in Lacey, WA. The youth reside in cabins with Ghillies (counselors), fly fishing gear is provided along with fly tying materials, all meals are included. Cost for the whole week is $275, there are sponsorships available. No one will be turned away because of funds. To learn more about the Academy, go to www.nwycffa.com or our Facebook page. The application is available on our website or contact Mike Clancy @ [email protected]
This is a life rewarding experience for our youth to learn conservation and the basics of fly fishing. The youth of today, are the guardians of the future of our sport of fly fishing.
