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!
Wednesday, March 29th, 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Topic: Youth and Fly Fishing
Join us on Wednesday, March 29th at the East Ranch Clubhouse to discuss teaching fly fishing to youth. CFFU volunteers are often needed to help teach casting or tie flies with children. The thought of teaching a child to tie a fly or cast can seem daunting, but Gary Howard and Rich Wilson will give us tips and the confidence to participate. Gary Howard, director of our youth program, will help explain how we can help. Rich Wilson and Gary will demonstrate how to tie a fly with a child as young as 2, and how they adjusts their methods for older kids. Gary will also demonstrate how to teach casting to youth. We also want all participants to share ideas for teaching our own children and/or grandchildren to fly fish.
Hope to see you on March 29th

The 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.
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.
