I just got back from a trip to the South Fork of the Platte River in Colorado, and the place was beautiful.  The scenery was almost as good as the fishing.  Picked up a pretty 20” rainbow on a Jujubee Midge under a Red Zebra midge.  The Trouts Fly Fishing fly shop in Denver set me up nicely. Be sure to stop by if you ever land in Denver.  Then, a visit to Flies and Lies in Deckers, CO where I fished was also helpful. 
May 8 is a date you may consider as I will be volunteering at the Wounded Warriors event at Lake Suson. This is a much shorter drive for the veterans than the trout parks, and much easier to attend. We’ll be fishing for blue gill/pan fish, bass and catfish. I received the invite from Amy Milne. If you’re interested in joining, please give me call.

This month’s Montauk outing still has plenty of rooms available. The outing takes place May 17th through 19th. I encourage everyone to consider joining me and call Ed Olander to book a room. Our outings are always a good time and one of the major benefits of membership of Ozark Fly Fishers. Ed had been doing an amazing job keeping these outings going each month. See page 2 for more information.

Terry and Roxanne Wilson had a great presentation on ponds at our April Monthly Meeting. It was fascinating to expand from our usual topics and to learn more about warm water fishing. A big thank you to Terry and Roxanne for coming out to speak with all of us.

See you on the water!

Steve Antonic and Al Bourisaw

“All You Ever Wanted to Know about Fishing for Trout on the White River”

Ozark Fly Fishers’ very own Steve Antonic and Al Bourisaw will be our May Meeting Guest Speakers. Steve and Al regularly fish the White River in Arkansas. Their presentation will include their preferred boat-type and how to rig it, how they rig their rods, and what their “go-to” flies are for the White. Attend and learn their preferred techniques, and where the most productive spots are on the White. With decades of experience between them, this is sure to be a fantastic program. You don’t want to miss it.
