This month, we'll have a group discussion on  "Gearing Up for Coldwater Fly Fishing".  This meeting will be informative whether you're a complete beginner or a semi-expert.  That's because everyone is welcome to share their knowledge and tips as part of the program.  The Coldwater Committee will lead the various topics, and members are encouraged to chime in at the end of each topic to offer their own experiences or expertise.

Here are the topics that will be covered:
- Rods and reels
- fly line
- leaders, tippets, tippet rings
- packs or vests?
- waders and boots
- wading staffs
- fly boxes
- strike indicators

Also information about the Little Missouri River, pertinent to our two club trips coming up.
