January 27 meeting featuring Jeff Guerin

The next meeting of the Kisatchie Fly Fishers will be on Monday, January 27.  Location is the Rapides Westside Library on 5416 Province Place in Alexandria, in the north meeting room.  Time is 6:30pm.  This meeting is open to the public, and all are invited.

For January, we are delighted to have Mr. Jeff Guerin as our guest speaker.  Jeff is a fly fishing guide on the Little Missouri River in southwest Arkansas, and owner of the website.  He's also an accomplished blues musician.

The Little Missouri River is located near Murfreesboro, AR, exactly four  hours from Alexandria.  It is one of three tailwaters in the Ouachita Mountains that are cold enough to support rainbow trout year-round. In addition, there is a winter-only stocking of trout in the river section above Lake Greeson.  Jeff will talk about the history and future of trout on the river, about tackle, flies, and tactics for trout, and other fly fishing opportunities in the Ouachitas.  Jeff is always fun to listen to, and this promises to be a very informative meeting... you will not want to miss!

Also on the agenda:
- Tip of the Month
- Fishing Reports
- Fly Fishing 101, Acadiana Conclave, other upcoming events
