Monday September 20, 2021, Meeting Notice

We will conduct our September meeting at 7:00 pm right after the Fly-Tying Demo, at the Ludlow Elks Club, 69 Chapin Street in Ludlow MA.  We will adhere to current Virus Practices. Masks, distance, sanitizer etc. It’s been a while since we had our last meeting! (May Cookout)  We hope that you are all in good health and trying to live your lives as normal as possible given our extenuating circumstances.  One thing that I look forward to is getting back to our meetings and enjoy the interaction, comraderies, and sharing fish stories that we can all relate to.

Meeting Minutes:

Our last meeting was the annual cookout.  We all thank Dan Trela and his wife, plus Roy Britton for pulling off a successful event.  It was a good time to see all the folks and enjoy the good food and friendships at the event. If you want information on the status of our funds, please see our treasurer (Don Vacon) for the info available at the meeting.

Welcome our newest member, Thomas (Tom) Rzasa who joined our group at the cookout.

Working on getting WMFF Club letterhead if you need some.  Can send it by file via email or I will carry some in my bag.

Field Notes from Our Local Fly Fishers: Be careful when you venture out onto the water.  Levels are high with all the rain we’ve been getting
