What a great weekend for weather and no better way to spend it - on the water!  My daughter Lainey and her cousin K.C. enjoyed playing a salmon and trout.

Fly Fishing ShowThis week we worked on mastering the blood and turle knots.  We also watched a video on fly fishing techniques that focused on casting and knot tying.  Reminder that we will now meet regularly on Tuesday's...next week we hope to get outside to do some casting so bring your rod/reel if you have one.  Check out the details on the upcoming Fly Fishing Show in Miramichi at the Curling Club on May 24 & 25.  Lots of great exhibits and opportunities to learn all things salmon fishing...hope to see everyone there!!!
Time For CastingThis past Thursday we discussed the design of a fly rod and a fly line.  We checked out the video from Temple Fork Outfitters on the Office Rods that we recently purchased.  Lefty Kreh gives some instruction on casting.  Here is the video...  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GPIxJUWtLMsWe went up into the Mez and tried to put the theory into action with our practice rods.  We plan to meet next week on Wednesday.  Reminder to pay your club fee by next week.

Turle KnotA few weeks back we tied some #2 flies where each student picked a pattern of their choice to be put in this year's shadow box.  Now we will take a break from fly tying and we have started some fly fishing activities.  This past Wednesday we worked on both the blood knot and turle knot.  Check out the following videos to practice them...

Thanks to Jacques Heroux and the Dieppe Fly Fishing Club for providing us an opportunity to promote our fly fishing club.  Also, thanks to everyone who stopped by the booth...it was a great weekend.

Posted: March 16, 2013

We decided to borrow this video link from the Blackville Middle School Fly Fishing Club.  Check out the awesome interview with George Routledge of George's Fly Shop in Renous.  George is a strong supporter of the MVHS Fly Fishing Club.  George has been quite sick lately so let's keep him in our thoughts and prayers.
