Club Outings for 2017

Updated December 30, 2017

 

  • Details on each scheduled outing (see below) will be presented by the outing coordinator at the Free State Fly Fishers (FSFF) meeting prior to the outing, emailed to members two weeks in advance, and posted on the FSFF web site.
  • A one- to two-page description of outing logistics, including when, where, meeting location/time, target species, recommended equipment, recommended flies, license(s) needed, and any other instructions/outing logistics will be prepared for each outing and widely distributed at club meetings and posted on-line on the club’s web site.
  • The club’s seasonal newsletters will also include the updated outings schedule, information on the upcoming outings, and reports on outings already conducted.
  • Got an idea for an outing? Please contact Rich Batiuk, FSFF Outings Coordinator at 410-268-5226 or at a club meeting.
  • Being an outing coordinator is simple: 1) set the date, where to meet and when, 2) draft-up the one-page outing description, and 3) just show up and start fishing!
  • 2017 FSFF outings goals: aiming for at 1-4 outings per month (and yes, January through December!!) for a total of at least 25 outings for the year.
