This month we'll have a guest speaker, Darin Lee, of the Acadiana Fly Rodders.  His presentation will focus on fishing Poverty Point Reservoir State Park. A little over 2 hours from Alexandria, this lake offers some great fishing opportunities for a wide variety of warmwater species.

Topics will include lodging on the water, boat and kayak access, good areas to fish, various types of gear and flies to use. Mike Carlin attended this presentation at an AFR meeting and describes it as useful to just about any warmwater fishing situation. Darin is an excellent speaker, instructor and fly tier.

As always, the public is welcome. For Zoom connection, email Mike or Bill for meeting number and password. For the KFF YouTube Channel, use this link and go to Live videos -
