March meeting Reminder!

Just another heads up!

Our March meeting is set for Thursday at 6:30, Rania’s Restaurant, Martinsville.


We will be featuring a Gear Review. Have a rod/reel/line/leader setup that works great for you? Come show it off and tell us why.

What kind of vest/pack arrangement works for you? How do you arrange your fly boxes? What floatant works and what indicator system do you use?  Split shot set up? Dry/droppers?

All of this and more. It’s a show and tell program, so please participate!


Also, we have a whopper schedule set. Especially for the next 4-5 months. We will discuss details of our first Project Healing Waters event, stream side meeting, river clean ups, Camping and fishing Trip to Grayson area, and our first Lyin’, Tyin’ and Fishin’ event to be held in may.


Lots of good stuff, see you there!
