This is the first session of the fall fly tying classes. The classes will be held at Cheshire County Fish and Game in Keene. The classes will run from 6:30 pm to 8:30m pm. We will focus on streamers this time and and the agenda is:
Week 1 - Wooly Buggers and variants
Week 2 - Waterman's Silver Outcast
Week 3 - Zonkers
Week 4 - Strymphs and variants
Week 5 - Clousers
These flies will give the attendees a range of skills using different materials. The chapter provides the materials, tools for class use and we will have kits for sale also. The intent is to focus on a few flies with the opportunity to tie 4 or more each night.
The cost for the 5 week session is $75 for the general public, $50 for CCF&G members, $25 for students and veterans.
The BOD has arranged for another trip with the Harrison brothers. Here are the details.
Monadnock TU Deerfield Trip – October 30, 31, November 1, 2014
Plans are now set for another Monadnock TU trip to the Deerfield. We have reserved 2 boats for Friday and Saturday (October 31 & November 1) float trips with the Harrison’s. These reservations are for a full day floats, you may sign up for a full or half-day float. If you wish to reserve a boat trip, a refundable deposit of $50 is required. People on a float trip will pay the Harrisons at the end of the float. There is ample opportunity for wade fishing at many places on the Deerfield.
Two cabins have been reserved for Thurs/Fri /Sat nights. To reserve a night bunk space a deposit of $30/night is needed. The cabins have 4 beds, one could sleep 2 close friends. The other sleeping options are on the floor (recommend air mattresses), in your car or in a tent. You are welcome to stay more than one night if you wish.
The charge of $ 30 per night includes dinner for one night and breakfast if there is someone to cook. Also included are sleeping accommodations. Note: you need to bring your own adult beverage, these are not supplied. Fishing rendezvous approximately 7:30 AM each morning.
Questions and reservation information should be directed to Mike Elkavitch, email@example.com, who will then direct appropriately. We prefer that you pay at the October meeting. This would simplify things greatly. If you wish to mail your deposit, please send it to Mike at
PO Box 155

The first meeting of the new year will be Thursday, October 16. The meeting will be at the Dublin Public Library, lower level, starting at 6:30 pm. Larry Antonuck will offer a fly tying demo and will answer questions and discuss techniques. There may also be some spectacular video from a soon to happen fishing trip!
Come on out and tell everyone about the big ones you caught!
Need to get out on some BIG water? Well, maybe not that big. How about Norway Pond in Hancock? We are planning a summer field excursion there on Thursday, July 17. There is a nice ramp to launch from, plenty of water to fish and lots of fish to be had. The time to begin to assemble will be around 5 pm, still light until later on and then the Hancock Inn is very close to stop into and get a libation and tell those stories of the HUGE bass that got away!
Below is the NH Fish and Game link to the Norway Pond map. Oh, if you are thinking of coming, drop me an email, just so that we know who to expect.
Come out, spend a summer evening doing what you do best - FISH!
