May 2016 CFF Events and Agnes Adams Bluegill Contest!

We had an excellent turnout to or Spring Fling 2016. Jason Randall had several great presentations and some great feedback from our club. We hope everyone had a great time!

Warm spring weather is finally upon us and there are lots of fish being caught around our Cornhusker state.  We have a full slate of club events this month, just in time for the gorgeous great plains spring!

This month's meeting is Wednesday the 18th.  Club member Bob White will be giving a presentation on Fly Fishing for Bluegill (He's the reigning 1-Fly contest champion by the way).  Doors open at 6:30 and the meeting starts at 7:00.  As usual we'll have great raffle prizes and casting lessons for those who show up early.  The fly of the month this month is the Copper John.  Check the fly of the month tab for more details.

The CFF Agnes Adams 1-Fly Bluegill Contest is Saturday the 21st at Burchard Lake. The contest starts at 2:00 PM.  Check back for details!
