MVFF Weekly Hot Topics Update Friday, October 13, 2023.
Tomorrow 10/14 is our free fishing day at Clear Lakes Country Club Lake in Buhl. It will be in this nice fall weather with fish recently caught so big they wouldn’t fit into our nets. Lots more +/- 20 inches have been seen too sipping midges so try a dry!
Paid members fish free and if you renew or join tomorrow you get that perk plus your 2024 dues paid at the current $35/ yr. family rate that will go up to $45 on 1-1-2024. That’s a $20+ savings and you can pay there at the fish-out tomorrow.
Fred will be set up at the parking lot above the launch dock around 8 am. for you to sign in there first and then go down to sign in at the Pro Shop for their records.
Golf carts are again available to rent at the pro shop for our shore fishing pleasure around the lake, input stream and on the island at our price of $10 all day and we just reserved two this morning and want to get the word out to you all about this added benefit to our members.
Mike and the others will have your free hot dogs from about 11 to 2 with all the fixin’s.
Out on the water again!! Great fish, great folks, great fun.
Next Thursday, November 19, is our General Meeting at the Barn with the café serving.
Our member & speaker Bob Harrison will present his program on Winter Fly Fishing in Phoenix, Arizona and the Warm Southwest. While a native of Hayburn and lives here spring and summer on the family farm, Bob’s primary home is in the Phoenix area where he is a long time member of the Desert Fly Casters, Fly Tying leader and knows all the spots to catch fish and how when we are frozen up here! He will cover Phoenix’s urban ponds and canals that offer fly fishing opportunities for bass, trout, carp and tilapia throughout the winter. The presentation will cover locations, equipment, and local resources for getting away from Idaho’s cold weather to other areas around his state and region. Lots warmer, good fly fishing and not so far away.
A show not to miss.
Our October Club News will be out after the General Meeting next week. It will include our President’s October message and those from our other board members. Please review our September 8 Club News as there is a lot in it and we will be adding current information to all the topics discussed there and more including:
Please keep getting donations. Our Saturday November 18 Fall Party and Banquet needs all you can make, find and bring in asap. Checks to the club for sustaining support work well too!!
Task/date sign-ups to get this event to happen will be distributed and discussed next Thursday. You can call to begin working with us NOW if you can’t make that meeting.
Please go to this event on our website to learn more about our speaker, register and pay now so this can be a fun party all will enjoy.
Officer, Board of Directors, & Committee Chair 2024 positions must be filled now for our November election. We seriously need you all to WORK with us. New and seasoned, young and old, experienced and not-so-much are needed NOW to do the tasks that the too few of us are burning out on now. HELP!
Thank you all for making MVFF the fun & solid old fly fishing club that it is.
