Monthly Meetings and Programs for 2018
Everybody is welcome. Come join in the family fun. Our club meets the 4th Thursday of every month except for November (Meeting on third Thursday – Thanksgiving Schedule), and December (annual club holiday party). The June or July meeting is “Night on the River,” and August is the club picnic. August, and December meetings are not at the church. Check the newsletter or specific website pages for details.
The meetings kick off at 6:15 with fly tying demonstrations done by our club members and/or guest speaker for that night. It is also a great time to mingle with friends and family and get the latest fishing report. The club has a full library you have access to once you’re a member. We also do monthly club raffles where you will find some awesome stuff. The meeting will start at 7:00 and usually goes till 9 p.m. Guests and new members are always welcome. Come join us for a night of fly fishing fun.
We meet at Wesley United Methodist Church, 1385 Oakway Rd, Eugene, OR unless otherwise scheduled, (see note above) such as our Annual Picnic and Holiday Parties in August and December.
