Our next meeting will be on Tuesday, March 3, at the Rapides Westside Library in Alexandria.  Time is 6:30pm.  The public is invited.

This is our rescheduled February meeting, which was cancelled due to winter weather.

For this meeting, our speaker will be club member Roger Breedlove.  Roger has built custom rods for many years. He will talk about what goes into making an effective fly rod, including various blanks, components, and other materials, as well as rod actions. Whether you're interested in someday building a rod, or simply curious about what makes for a well-made rod, you'll enjoy this program!

Also on the agenda:  upcoming club outings in March to the Little Mo (trout) and to a local lake for bass and bream.  Also, Kisatchie National Forest Day on March 21st at Kincaid Rec Area.

2015 dues are due! Just $20 for either individual or family - and FREE for military and students!
