March 24 meeting - Meet the Fluff Butts!

The next meeting of the Kisatchie Fly Fishers will be on Monday, March 24.  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.

Catch Cormier will give a presentation on "Fluff Butts and How To Fish Them".  There are numerous variations of this fly, but one thing they have in common is an ability to catch fish when used correctly.  It's caught everything from bluegills to stripers, and a saltwater version has even taken speckled trout and snook!  Catch will also briefly discuss other hot panfish flies such as Jitterbee, Cap Spider, Tussel Bug, and more as we prepare for what should be a great spring fishing in the Cenla area.
