Fly Fishers Next In-Person Meeting

Linda Lyon

With a global pandemic, record heat, national forest closures due to wildfires, and low water levels, it has been a tough year to enjoy fly fishing. Even in-person meetings have been on hold since early 2020 for the SaddleBrooke Fly Fishers Club.

Since that time, we’ve more than doubled our membership, and it is time to get everyone together to meet each other and plan next steps. Our first in-person meeting in almost one and half years will be on Sept. 27 at 4 p.m. in MountainView’s Sonoran Room at SaddleBrooke TWO.

On the agenda during that meeting will be the introduction of new members and discussions of both a possible trip to the White Mountains in October and a potential swap meet for members to sell/swap fishing gear they no longer want. As we’ll be in the MountainView Club house, we hope members will stay afterward for some visiting in the bar.

The SaddleBrooke Fly Fishers Club was established to further interest in the sport of fly fishing among residents of the SaddleBrooke community. Our club goals are to provide:

• Fly fishing opportunities for the membership

• Educational opportunities for all levels of fly fishers, in various aspects of the sport

• An opportunity for the membership to socialize and build lasting relationships around the sport of fly fishing

• Promote the development and sustainment of fly fishing opportunities in the SaddleBrooke community

• Promote sustainable fly fishing

We currently have over 60 members at all levels of proficiency and invite any SaddleBrooke resident to join us for camaraderie around a sport we love (or want to learn about). For more information about the club, email us at [email protected] We look forward to seeing you at the meeting on Sept. 27 at 4 p.m.!
