Fly Fishing Central WA with Joe Rotter

This month we had a good turnout of 30 members and guest for our January meeting. Promptly following dinner we had the election of new club officers led by President Scott Peters. As was nominated at our December 2010 meeting the following slate was so elected by unanimous vote.
Bob Long - President
Tyson Kopfer - Vice President
Dr. Doug Coe - Treasurer
Dale McKain - Secretary
Following the election of officers, our outgoing Treasurer Barry Gould gave his last treasurer's report and told us that ending club funds for 2010 was just over $700 in Baker Boyer Bank. It was a good year for the club, with plenty of good speakers, outdoor activities, and a fall banquet with Brian O'Keefe.
Joe Rotter of Red's Fly Shop of Yakima give the program of the evening. His Power Point Presentation was titled Fly Fishing All Seasons on the Yakima River. This was a very well done presentation which detailed hatches and bug matching strategies, hydrology, when to wade, when to float, trip planning, the Yakima River. Joe also discussed other nearby rivers which, included information on fishing the Naches, Klickitat, Methow, and Wenatchee Rivers for Steelhead – along with Carp fishing the Columbia River, Smallmouth Bass fishing on the Lower Yakima River, and many of the lesser known mountainous tributary streams in Eastern Washington.
We wish to thank Joe for again making a great presentation, and joining our meeting for this evening.
After the meeting Joe made the club a special offer for a guided fishing trip on the Yakima River to help us create a club fund raiser. This offer will be presented at February's meeting after being discussed by the new club officers.
The meeting was adjourned shortly thereafter, with individuals socializing one-on-one.

Our next meeting will be held 9 February 2011.

Tight lines and good fishing.
