February Social Topic: Tips, Tricks and Favorite Things
When: Wednesday, February 28
Where: Clubhouse at 150 East Ranch Road
This social is especially designed for mentors and our newer members. Our mentors will share some of their favorite “things” an accessory, skill, piece of equipment, story, or words of wisdom. Experience has given us some valuable insight that may be helpful to share with new fly fishers. Have you ever had to remove a hook a hook you imbedded in your own skin (or someone else’s), repair wader leaks, take apart rod pieces that are stubbornly stuck together? Not yet, but it’s bound to happen, and when it does, we want you to be prepared. For those new to fly fishing: Bring your 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 East 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.
