Spring Fling 2020 Canceled


Cornhusker Fly Fishers, 

Due to the public health concerns of the recent Coronavirus/COVID-19 epidemic, the Cornhusker Fly Fishers will be cancelling several of our upcoming events, including our 2020 Spring Fling.   All of us have created an amazing community with the Cornhusker Fly Fishers.  We are more than just anglers, we are friends and family, and we will never stop sharing our passion for fly fishing.   Please trust that the decision to cancel or postpone these events has not been taken lightly.  The Club Board Members and I believe this is the best decision for the continued health and wellbeing of our club members.  And don’t worry, we will still get out and fish together this year!
Continue to check our website, cornhuskerflyfishers.org, our club Facebook page, and our monthly newsletter for continued updates on club’s activities. We will be trying to organize as many outdoor events as possible once the weather warms up. 
Please take care of each other and yourselves.

Larry Dostal
Club President 2018-2020
