Participants: All Club Members

 

Event #1: Pumpkin Decoration and Carving

 

Comment: Here’s your chance to demonstrate your skills with pumpkins. Carve or decorate one and bring it along to display your seasonal artistic efforts and have the membership vote on the best in a couple of different categories.

 

Event #2: Halloween Flies

 

Comment: Try your hand at tying some flies on a Halloween theme. They could be as simple as an orange and black wooly bugger, as scary as a large bushy spider or as whacky as a Witch Creek Nymph. Use you imagination and have some fun.

 

The club will supply some prizes and confections.

Since the weather looks good, I'll be out with the telescope and a group of students tonight so won't make the meeting. Dang!

This week you can enjoy the November Newsletter ghost (as in can't be seen).

I'm working on it, but haven't got all the program settled yet. I will post it when done and bring copies to the November 1 meeting.

My daughter (Rangerette Katie - 8 yrs) tying some flies. Her dad brought in a few Halloween type materials for folks to tye with. Unfortunately, not many folks were tying tonight for some reason... she did did get some Treats though (eventually), but was tricked by Brian's 1 and half hour speech on Upcoming Fisheries Regulation changes first. Was that even on the agenda tonight?

My pumpkin.. well.. technically Alan gave me the pumpkin... the seeds roasted up good last night too, after soaking in Sea Salt for 24 hours. Baked at 350 for 10 minutes... any more.. they burn... or begin to sound like shotgun shells going off in the oven.

The flies TeamRB&R tied tonight, guess which three she did. Yes, she tied three of these herself! Which ones do you think she tied and I did (answer here).

 

Part of the new Fall line-up of "Jack-Fish-O-Wabamum" flies to be tested yet.

Our Librarian Jack-O-Lantern Jerry.... showing his Fall line-up of books, DVDs, and videos... all nicely cataloged.... and ready for you to check out soon! What Jerry did for you all summer instead of fishing!

 

Sorry Jerry, I couldn't resist TRICKING this photo out. Let's work to get that list of materials on the web finally this fall shall we to show the folks what the club has to offer them. Yes, we do offer beginner's tying courses as well.... but more on that soon eh. Yeah, let's be getting back to a tying club soon again folks, although a new undisclosed fishing hole was also given out tonight by one of our members that might be worthy of checking out.

 

You gotta show up, and participate to learn about all these great things the club has to offer though! :)

Great job on the pumpkin - first class and yes the night was a bit long with the report. Gerry looks good with his new look.

 

Now I've saved the best for last. You tied some great Pike flies but what I was really impressed with was the quality of fly that your daughter tied...please tell her that I think she did a great job. I hope you've got a 9 weight for her.
