Wednesday, January 13 Chapter Meeting Program By Rick Prange

In keeping with our usual intent to provide some real time fishing entertainment for the mid-winter meeting, we are featuring a dandy film video on a steelhead fly fishing adventure to the wilds of British Columbia. The “Team Fly Boys” are helicoptered into some unnamed and remote river tributary of the Skenna River drainage where they hope to intercept migrating wild run steelhead with fly gear. Even in paradise, the fishing can be challenging and these guys are hard core camping, hiking and floating, looking to find some aggressive native steelhead to hook on flies. And they do. This film actually shows steelhead being hooked on dead drifted dry flies! The fish are feeding on hatching adult green drake mayflies – unbelievable, if you know what I mean. The film also features a number of legendary steelhead fly fishers including Steve Pettit, Keith Stonebraker and Russell Chatham, talking about what has driven wild steelhead to the brink of extinction. Our regular meeting starts at 7:30 with a fly tying demonstration beginning at 6:30, IDFG MK Center, 600 South Walnut.
