President’s Message - August 2019

Not too much to say about the past month, as I just drove in from the West Coast last night. Vacations are precious! I understand the Montauk WQM outing went well.

I enjoyed the presentation by Brian Waldrop from Stream Team at our meeting, and unfortunately have a new understanding of tires in our streams. I personally like the Water Quality Management portion, but the need to clean up our streams is constant. I encourage everyone to help the Stream Team efforts, and maybe even discover a new fishing hole or two.

Looking forward to our next trip to the White River, as the package Ed put together is a great one. I look forward to those joining us in Arkansas!

Dan Rasch, President, Ozark Fly Fishers
