Greetings Fly Fishers,
I came upon this skeleton of a Giant Trevally on my Christmas Island trip. Artistic or Creepy? I
thought it was pretty cool. We have a busy spring ahead of us. At the February 13th meeting
you will be electing your FCO Board. This was published in Member Matters last month. I am
very excited about the talented group of volunteers we have representing our club. The FCO
Board will also vote to approve the FFF slate. Please make your reservation online, this is a
very important meeting.
The Rocky Ridge Fishing trip on April 7th is SOLD OUT! That happened fast, and speaks loudly
to the obvious fun of the outing. Our talented Master Griller Mike Collins will be back creating
his culinary yumminess. I will send an email out to everyone that registered with details. You will
need to go to the club web-site click pay dues and check the box that says Rocky Ridge.
The 2018 Annual Club Auction is approaching fast. Please save the date, May 8th, 2018. It will
be held at the Multnomah Athletic Club. Chef Phillipe has created a very special menu for our
event. I am currently taking names for table hosts, you can host a table of 8 or 10. The cost is
$85.00 per person. I am also asking for donations of gear, flies, wine & experiences. If you
have a special fishing trip that you love please donate the trip. I am looking for weekend cabins
on the coast or in central Oregon. If you love to cook consider donating a dinner either at your
home or in the home of the person that buys the dinner. Your support is greatly appreciated.
Lastly I hope everyone is finding time on the water. I fished the Nestucca and Trask last
weekend and though I didn’t land a Steelhead, I enjoyed the scenery.
My best to you,
