The CFFU Social Night offers a great way to connect with other club members, enjoy refreshments, and participate in an educational fishing presentation in a smaller gathering. Everyone welcome!
December 15, Kiene's Fly Shop
9550 Micron Ave, 6:30-8:30
Topic: Holiday Party
Kiene’s will keep its doors open late exclusively for CFFU members for a special evening. We are combining Tech Thursday and Social Night to celebrate the holidays.
Meet, greet and eat! Members can browse the store and socialize with other CFFU members. If you can bring a food or drink item to share it would be appreciated. Wear your name tags if you have one. It’s a good way for our new members to connect our names with faces.
If you would like to participate in a White Elephant gift exchange, bring a wrapped gift to the social. It is recommended to be under $20 and be fly fishing related.
Mary Ellen Mueller will be there to help any members with equipment choices. You can pick her brain and ask her any questions from accessories to float tubes to new items from specific vendors.
Registers will be open. Don’t forget to check out the discontinued products. This is a perfect opportunity to get Christmas gifts for someone (or yourself). Stay for the entire time or just drop by to visit and check out the specials. It’s a fun way to show support to our local fly shop. We’re looking forward to seeing you on the 15th.
If you have any questions please call Laurie Banks at (916) 709-1309,or Jeff Stephens (916) 838-7513
Topic: Reading Water
There is an old saying that 75% of the fish are in 25% of the water. Reading water helps you understand where the fish are most likely to be holding. By concentrating on these areas, you are more likely to catch more fish. Ken has been photographing rivers and streams as we've traveled across the Western States. He's put these together in a PowerPoint. Together the group can analyze where the fish might be hiding and discuss the techniques we could use to catch them.
Call me if you have any questions.
Socials are very informal. Half the time we generally spend socializing over great food and drink. Speaking of that, if you would like to bring food or drink (even adult beverages) to share it would be much appreciated. Remember to wear your name badge if you have one.
When: Generally held the last Wed., 6:30 p.m.
Location: Unless noted, meetings are held at the Ranch Clubhouse, 150 East Ranch Road, Sacramento, CA 95825 MAP>
Contact: Laurie Banks
Directions: The East Ranch Clubhouse is part of a condominium complex. The address is150 East Ranch Road. It is located near Highway 50, off the Howe exit. The nearest cross streets are American River Drive and Munroe. East Ranch Road doesn’t have a street sign but a low stone monument in a flower bed. There are two entrances; the clubhouse is by the southern one. Power lines straddle this entrance providing a great landmark. As you turn on to East Ranch Road you will notice eight parking spots on the right hand side. (If these are full you can park on either side of the street). Directly in front of the parking spaces you will see the wrought iron fence surrounding the pool. The clubhouse is attached to the swimming pool.
About Social Nights
Social Nights offer a great way to connect with other club members, enjoy refreshments, and participate in an educational fishing presentation in a smaller gathering. Previous evenings have included fly tying lessons, entomology 101, fishing and catching techniques, rod rigging and knot tying, casting techniques, and more. We've learned about fishing lakes and rivers, toured local fly shops, and fished together.
Everyone is welcome. Think about attending if:
The socials were started in 2013 as a way to bring together women fly fishers. It was so much fun, the women decided to meet monthly. Since the original meeting the concept has grown. Women brought husbands and boyfriends to the meetings. Soon additional club members who were interested in the monthly topic joined us. Although the makeup of the meetings has changed the purpose is the same. The socials are a nice way to meet and talk to other fly fishers in a small, relaxed environment.
