Upcoming events

In Memoriam: Larry Friedman

Dr. Larry Friedman, our club's VP and Director, has passed away at the age of 81.  He was a good friend and hard worker who loved fly fishing and pheasant hunting with his beloved dogs.  He was an active member of Mt Tam Fly Fishers and did an incredible job as our Outings Chair.  He was active in SIRS Branch 134 and their Rooster Fly Casters, and the venerable Golden Gate Angling and Casting Club.  There will be a memorial service to be announced.  Our condolences to his wife, Marilyn, and Larry's many friends and family.

A Memorial Service for Larry will be on Wed, Oct 26, 1:00 p.m. at Congregation Rodef Sholom in San Rafael.   It’s at 170 North San Pedro Rd in Santa Venetia (take the Civic Center turnoff near the top of Puerto Suello Hill – between San Rafael and Terra Linda - and head east).  Rodef Sholom will be on your right across San Pedro Rd from Venetia Valley School.

Feather River Steelhead October 25
Time: 7:00pm
Place: Room 201, Town Center Shopping Mall (Corte Madera, above ATT store)

"Steelheading on the Feather"
The Feather River, located in Oroville, has a large Fall and Spring run of steelhead. The presentation gives a well-rounded view of the river. The lecture portion of this presentation covers history, angling information, access points, fly-fishing techniques and flies. Lance will go into the difference of the Fall run verses the Spring run fish and the different tactics we use for targeting these great fish.
About Lance & Kirsten Gray
Lance and Kirsten have more than 50 years combined experience in fly fishing. Lance started fly fishing with his father and brother at age 7. In his teens, he began tying flies commercially for shops all around Northern California. At 17, he went to work at Powell's in Chico, working in the fly shop and building rods. He guided for Powell’s, conducted fly-tying and fly-fishing schools, and traveled.
In 1993, Lance and Kirsten started Saltwater Innovations, a company that manufactured and distributed products for saltwater fly fishing. Lance’s Crystal Popper, Gray’s Billfish Fly, the KO Charlie line and the Raghead Crabs are all Saltwater Innovations products. Kirsten worked behind the scenes, handling the day-to-day operation running the manufacturing floor of the company.
In 2003 they launched Lance Gray & Company, a full-service outfitter offering guided trips, fly-fishing schools, workshops and a travel agency. Lance conducts presentations at fly clubs and outdoor shows and supports local groups like Cub Scouts and 4H. He's a signature tier for Aqua Flies, pro staff member for Sage and Rio and is a featured writer, with articles published in Angling Trade Magazine, California Fly Fisher, Fly Fisherman, Sierra Fisherman and Northwest Fly Fishing.
Kirsten is a fantastic photographer who's had images published in periodicals and on websites throughout the outdoor industry. 


Monthly Fly Tying October 21

Dear FF Colleagues:

Friday, October 21, is our Friday Night Fly Tying session at The Club at McInnis Park, 6:30 – 8:00.  We’ll be tying the ‘Weitchpec Witch’, a famous Steelhead pattern first tied by Master Tyer and Fly Designer Ed Haas, and used successfully on the Lower Klamath in 1949.

No experience necessary.  All materials, tools, and vise will be provided.  Hope you can join us.

Larry Lack

The Board Room at The Club at McInnis Park.  This is the same room our board uses the third Tuesday of every month.  It’s actually more central to all of Marin, and again we can use it for free as long as a few folks order something off the menu; like a beverage, or a small salad, or quesadillas, or cheeseburger, etc.

If you’ve never been to The Club, go east on Smith Ranch Rd, past the Regency Theaters, then past several soccer pitches, all the way to the end and you’ll see The Club.  Go in the entrance to the restaurant, turn right and proceed past the Golf Pro Shop to the Board Room.
