Our own Bill Wheeler will be explaining the technology behind fly lines and their use.
Jim Cox, Director of Donor Relations for Western Rivers Conservancy,
will make a presentation entitled “Fly Fishing Oregon’s Wild and Scenic
John Day River.” Since 1988 Western Rivers Conservancy has protected
lands on more than 50 rivers in eight western states. The program will
provide a few short updates WRC’s current conservation projects, with a
major focus on fly fishing Oregon’s Wild and Scenic John Day River, the
second longest free-flowing river in the West, for its world-class
smallmouth bass fishery and its excellent run of wild summer
steelhead. WRC was instrumental in helping create Cottonwood Canyon
State Park on the John Day, the second largest state park in Oregon, and
has purchased another major ranch on the John Day in an effort to protect
Thirty Mile Creek, a major cold-water sanctuary for wild steelhead.

Evolution,Application and relationship to rod and target species.
Jim has graciously offered to host a no cost tying session prior to the general meeting
Jim Teeny is a northwest fly fishing icon that has been developing leading edge products for over 40 years. He is the developer of the Teeny Nymph fly pattern, which has been responsible for more than 30 IGFA world records and will catch just about anything that swims. In addition, he has developed his own hooks and purpose built fly lines, which have become the #1 sinking lines throughout the world today. Jim will be giving a fly tying demonstration on how to tie the Teeny Nymph before our meeting and talk to group about how fly fishing needs to be viewed as a system and how to apply that system to the waters of the northwest.
