November 26 - Dr. Leesia Marshall

KFF monthly general meeting
Monday, November 26, 2018
Rapides Westside Library, 5416 Provine, Alexandria

If you've ever picked up one of those state-based fishing books, eg. "Fly Fishing Utah", then you know that each river has a story. As it flows from a tiny headwater downstream and widens, a series of changes occur. Not just in the river, but in the food webs and aquatic communities.

The scientific framework for describing how these flowing ecosystems change is the River Continuum Concept. This concept is especially important to us flyfishers since, more than any other angler group, we target all realms of the river ecosystem, from headwaters to deltas.

To tell us about the Concept this month is Dr. Leesia Marshall. Leesia is a professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at LSU-Alexandria. She does research in Limnology, Ecology, Ornithology and Animal Communications.

Please join us to hear Leesia talk on this fascinating subject! As always, the public is welcome! Bring a friend!

** This will be our last meeting for 2018 as we break for the holidays. We'll restart our general meetings the 4th Monday in January. **

We had to cancel the November fly tying session as the Westside Library was unexpectedly closed for remodeling.  We apologize for the late notification and will be working with Westside to get more advanced notifications of closings in the future.

Final weeks of Mixed Bag!

We're into the final weeks of our inaugural "Mixed Bag Contest", the CPR tournament where size doesn't matter, but diversity does. 

While Bill Morrison continues to build his lead, there's good reason for EVERY member to get at least ONE entry in. That's because the Grand Prize drawing will be drawn from all members who enter at least one fish. If you have several entries in, consider adding a few more. We'll be awarding the TOP 5 places, so any member can get still place!

ALSO... no need for a token in your photo as we're using the metadata. So just submit your entry with fish and fly rod (outfit) in pic!
