“I do not know what exactly fly fishing teaches us, but I think it is something we need to know.” -
John Gierach

It is time for Tilles Park.  This year we are catering the event, so that even Mike, Bob, and Steve can enjoy the evening. There was always a lot of work for the event and now it will be more casting and socializing. Bill Armon will be taking videos of our casting. As always, the certified casters will be on hand to help you with your skills. I hope that everyone can get free to have some food and talk.
July brings the Water Quality Weekend, July 10 – 12. The rooms are all booked, so if you need lodging, bring the tents. The whole weekend is full of activities, and there will be a clean stream event on Sunday. If you can only come down for the day, you will still have a lot of fun.
The Taneycomo Outing is September 17 – 20. There are rooms and beds still available, so call and let me know if you need a bed. This will be a lot of fishing and relaxing.
The Catch and Release Outing at Bennett Springs will be November 12 – 15. This is our biggest and oldest event. This was the first outing I attended when I became a member. Russ Hill has given up the reins, and turned the event over to Steve Antonic who is planning the outing. 
I hope that you will try to come to some of the outings; they are where you have time to meet people. The Ozark Fly Fishers have a long history of great outings and activities. These outings are just one of the reasons that Ozark Fly Fishers is a great club. Welcome and be active.
See you on the river waving a stick.

Rocking Chair

September Taney Outing

If you missed the September Taney outing, you missed a great one. Taney is always beautiful this time of year and fishes great; this year was one of the best. Steve Antonic won the #1 Big Fish with a 22 inch brown and John Furlong won the #2 Big Fish award for something less. 

If you were at Taney but did not stay to fish Sunday, you missed out on a picture perfect day. Blue skies and smooth as glass water.  See the picture of the “Rocking Chair”. Of course the fish were too busy enjoying the views to bother with a silly fly.
