Great Program February 28
Fly Fishing Western Tailwaters with Ed Engle
7:00 pm Marin County Office of Education Building, 1111 Las Gallinas Avenue, San Rafael
In this popular program, which came out of research conducted for his groundbreaking book, "Fly Fishing the Tailwaters," nationally-known expert Ed Engle offers an in-depth explanation of how tailwaters differ from unregulated freestone rivers and the best strategies and tactics for successfully fishing them. Basic tailwater biology is discussed along with aquatic insects and non-insect trout foods common to tailwaters throughout the western U.S. Specific tactics and fly patterns for tailwaters are discussed. Particular attention is given to fishing the small flies that are crucial to tailwater success. Although the program emphasizes western tailwaters, much of the information included will apply to tailwater fisheries through the United States. Due to the popularity of this program, we have changed the venue to Marin County Office of Education facility.
The meeting will be held at the Marin County Office of Education building located at 1111 Las Gallinas Avenue in Terra Linda. Take Highway 101 to the Manuel T. Freitas Parkway exit, head west to Las Gallinas Avenue, take right on Las Gallinas Avenue to the 1st stop sign at Las Colindas Road. Take a left on Las Colindas and park on street. The Marin County Office of Education building is on the corner of Las Gallinas & Las Colindas Road. The meeting is held in the conference room in the Marin County Office of Education building.
Friday, March 17, is our Friday Night Fly Tying session at The Club at McInnis Park, 6:30 – 8:00.
No experience necessary. All materials, tools, and vise will be provided. Hope you can join us.
We will be tying the Tui Chub pattern (in green, in honor of St Patty's Day). This is the baitfish that the giant Pyramid Lake Lahontan cutthroats eat. 'Nuf said!
The Board Room at The Club at McInnis Park. We 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.
