Our next meeting is April 15, and we have Clinton Carpenter coming up from St. Louis to speak to us about Project Healing Waters. He is the Heartland Regional Coordinator and he will be stopping by to give us an overview of the program and what role CFF be playing in getting the program off the ground here in Nebraska. A sign up sheet will be available at the club meeting along with a schedule of upcoming events.

We also have a Fish-In scheduled at Memphis SRA on Saturday, April 18th, from 10 am - 2 pm, bring your own lunch. I feel certain we will all catch some nice fish that day, hope to see you all out there!
There's less than a month until our annual Spring Fling. Just like pleasant warm weather, April 30th is right around the corner. Our special guest this year is renowned smallmouth bass fly fisherman, professional guide, and author of Smallmouth Fly Fishing - Tim Holschlag.
If you purchase your 2015 Spring Fling tickets before April 15th, you'll get five free raffle tickets for a chance at winning some great fly fishing gear. Ticket prices are $30 per person for age 16 and over, or $5 for those 15 and under. Don't forget to bring a pie!

The club is hosting a booth at the River City Expo in the Mid-America Center, Council Bluffs this weekend. It's a great show with everything from boats and rvs to the kids' fishing pond and jumpy house. There are booths relating to pets, hunting, fishing, archery, outfitters, conservation, etc. The River City Expo really has something for everyone, so come to the show and make sure you visit the Cornhusker Fly Fishers' booth in the fishing hall.
The club will hold its regular monthly club meeting tomorrow, Wednesday, November 19, 2014 at 7:00 pm (doors open at 6:30) at Aksarben Aquarium, Schramm State Park. We will be holding our annual election and voting for 2015 Executive Board Members. After the ballots are cast, we will welcome our guest speaker from Gavin's Point National Fish Hatchery. There has been a slight correction to the program and the Army Corp of Engineers is sending Mr. Craig Bockholt to give us a presentation on the hatchery. We still have some raffle tickets available for the wading staff, but we are hoping to draw for them soon, so please get your ticket(s) if you haven't already. We have an exciting evening planned, so please brave the cold and join us for the fun.
Look at what is still biting this fall! This beautiful 9" bluegill was caught by Joe Smith on Tuesday, October 4. He reported that he caught 7 others in about an hour of fishing. The fishing this fall continues to be fine, so please grab your rod and fly box and head out for time on your favorite water.
