The local chapter of HFFA is also in the planning stages of hosting next year’s ‘Annual Meeting’- AKA expo- in Bettendorf, IA. Rumor has it that there will be additional speakers about warm water fishing and local fly fishing opportunities, but many still hope for a fair amount of discourse about Trout in the Driftless Areas of IA, MN, and WI, or in other areas of the country. Attend meetings 1st/3rd Sundays of the month at Riverdale fire station and share your opinion on this club event.
I’ve added another non-profit organization to the ‘Casting It Forward’ page. It’s called ‘Reel Recovery’ and members/volunteers conduct free fly fishing retreats for men recovering from cancer. This year I plan to add more conservation-minded posts to this page on the blog. I am looking forward to posting first-hand accounts of volunteer conservation & fly fishing efforts while promoting organizations & individuals who work anywhere for clean water, happy fish, and happy/healthy anglers. Help me to fill this page!
