Night of the Stoneflies - January 14, 2014
Fin N Feather, Winneconne, WI - 6:15pm to 8:45pm
CWTU's December 10th Program:
The speaker for the December 10th meeting of the Central Wisconsin Chapter of Trout Unlimited will be Bill Sherer from Boulder Junction, Wisconsin. Bill will be speaking on Fly Fishing for Walleyes and will talk about the techniques, flies, and equipment needed to catch walleyes on the fly.
Many people use spinning gear and pull flies for walleyes in the Fox and Wolf Rivers every spring, but not many people actually fly fish with fly rods for walleyes. Some of the techniques Bill will talk about could be useful for fly fishing for walleyes on the Winnebago system and provide a fun new way of catching walleyes.
Bill is a nationally recognized fly fisherman guiding for trout, walleyes, smallmouth, and muskies on the fly around the Boulder Junction area. The program will start at 7:30pm at the Fin N Feather in Winneconne and is open to the public.
The program will be preceded by the CWTU Board meeting starting at 6:15 pm.
Many people will meet at 5:30 pm at the Fin to enjoy a meal and talk about fishing. Everyone is invited to attend this and the meeting.
The program is free and the public is invited to attend all three of the functions. Contact John Gremmer for more information 920-582-7802 or firstname.lastname@example.org/.
Fun at the June picnic: The CWTU June picnic and meeting was held at Veteran's Park in Redgranite. Linn Beck and Mike Schaefers hosted and provided the food. President John Tucker orchestrated the productive meeting. The July meeting will be held at Laura and John Tucker's home on the Pine River in Saxeville. More info on this will be coming.
