About Spring Fling

The Cornhusker Fly Fishers Spring fling is an event designed kick off the start of the fishing for the year. This event brings together the members of the club for a great day of fly tying seminars, raffles, silent auction items, and of course, food!

Because of the event's popularity, we have needed to find a large enough location comfortable and large enough to accommodate everyone. Therefore, Spring Fling will now be held at 'Round the Bend Steakhouse in Ashland, NE. Lunch/drinks are included in your ticket price and is also accompanied by doughnuts, coffee in the morning and pie for desert.

2016 Guest Speaker - Jason Randall
      Jason Randall has been an outdoor writer for the last ten years with feature articles appearing regularly in American Angler, as well as Fly Fisherman, Eastern Fly Fishing, Northwest Fly Fishing and many other outdoor magazines. He is a veterinarian certified in fish health and medicine. He is also a member of the World Aquatic Veterinary Medical Association and the Society for Freshwater Science.  

    His first book, ‘Moving Water: A Fly Fisher’s Guide to Currents’ was released in 2012 by Stackpole/Headwater books. It studies the effect of current on trout, their prey species and presentation, where vertical layers of current create drag and requires adjustments to improve nymph fishing success.

      In July 2014, the third book in the ‘Fly Fisher’s Guide’ trilogy was released‐ ‘Trout Sense; A Fly Fisher’s Guide to What Trout See, Hear and Smell’, which offers anglers an opportunity to know more about the quarry they seek.
