May 26 meeting - video "Midge Magic"

Our next meeting will be Tuesday, May 26, at the Rapides Westside Library in Alexandria.  Time is 6:30pm. Please note that we will meet on Tuesday due to the Memorial Day holiday.  Guests are welcome.

For this meeting, we'll watch a video, "Midge Magic with Davy Wotton".  Wotton will be the featured guest instructor for the North Louisiana Fly Fishers' annual Master Series on July 25th at the Red River Refuge in Bossier City.  Details of that event can be found here.

In this video, the British-born Arkansas guide demonstrates, on a variety of water types, all the skills needed to catch trout feeding on midges.  He covers gear, leaders, tippets, tactics to approaching spooky fish, useful line management methods, casting tactics and more.  He demonstrates a variety of rigging systems and fishing them at different depths.

Also on the agenda: fishing reports, several upcoming events including the CCA Cenla Fishing Seminar, the Kisatchie club's rod building clinic on June 20, and the Grand Isle Fly Fishing weekend.
