Posted inUncategorized|Comments Off on Hi-Desert Fly Fishers Monthly Meeting:
I hope everyone has been enjoying the summer break and most importantly, you have had the time to get some fishing in. I want to apologize for the lack of communication since we went on summer break. My wife is currently undergoing chemotherapy and things have been pretty hectic around the house these past few months. I’m in a better position now to get back to club business. Thank you all for your patience.
Annual Convict Lake HDFF/Veterans Fly Fishing Trip – September 10th-15th 2023:
Our annual Convict Lake trip is just around the corner. Rocky and John have scheduled a mandatory group meeting of all HDFF club members and Veterans who plan on attending this year. I apologize for the short notice. The meeting will take place at our normal meeting location in the Founders Room. The meeting will start promptly at 6:00pm and should be a relatively short meeting.
Space is limited so we need to determine the head count of those who are planning to make the trip to Convict Lake. John has additional information and will discuss all the pertinent details at the meeting on Tuesday evening.
Once again I apologize for the short notice regarding this very important meeting!
Established January 26, 2009, we are a family-orientated fly-fishing club who offers unique programs, and presentations given at our club meetings by fly- fishing experts in their particular fields that aim to introduce, educate, and inform all levels of fly fishers within our community, on all things associated with fly fishing, fly tying, fly casting, fly rod building, and conservation programs established to protect our fisheries for generations to come. This is all accomplished through a social setting both in the clubhouse and actual experiences on the water.
HDFF holds their meetings on the second Tuesday of each month. Meetings are held at the Apple Valley Fire Station 336, located at 19235 Yucca Loma Road (near the intersection of Apple Valley and Yucca Loma Roads).
Please see our “My Calendar” page for specific dates.
The meetings start at 7:00pm and are open to members and to any non-member guests interested in learning about the sport of Fly Fishing.
HDFF has worked and continues to work with local and regional organizations reaching out to at risk youth and to anyone who may benefit from fly fishing including our local veterans who participate in our Veterans Program. Our Veterans group meet on the last Tuesday of the month. We also work With Casting for Recovery which is a national organization that uses fly fishing in their recovery program for women that have had breast cancer. Every Christmas our club participates in the annual ‘Spark of Love’ toy drive by contributing our toy donations to the Apple Valley Fire Station 336.
Every year we offer classes in casting, rod building and fly tying. These classes are free to the public except for a modest cost for materials. Non-members are also welcome to attend our monthly meetings and enjoy the variety of speakers who enthusiastically share their knowledge and their experience.
