New volunteer opportunities for me and Patty

Last Tuesday myself and Patty were elected to offices in the Red River Fly Fishing club.

I am the new President and Patty is the new Secretary.
The Board as a whole is looking forward to a fun filled 2011.

Arkansas last week

Last week several of us fly fishing club Presidents were invited to the FFF SoC Leadership retreat in Norfolk, Arkansas. We decided to go early and book a guide for a float trip down the Norfolk (North Fork of the White) River. Ken Richards owner of Just Fishin Guides was our guide. We put in at the boatramp below the dam at Norfork Lake and floated/waded to the convergence of the White River.






Texoma 12/10/10

I went out on Texoma yesterday with a guide buddy, Scott Bridgess, for a little striper action on the fly.
We motored around for a while and then I spotted a whole flock of sea gulls in an area. We headed that way and also discovered 30 to 40 loons going crazy in the same area.

Then we saw this.

And then it was hammer time.

In spite of the cold temps, damp air, and wind it was a great day on the water.

All my fish were caught on my new TFO 7wt Clouser rod.
