We have added a September club outing to Lake Minnitaki, ON, September 17-25th, 2014. See details in the Documents section under Club Outings. Contact Stro at if you want to go. It is a very economical trip.
A club outing to Truman Lake, October 5-9, is being planned. Let Lee know if you're interested. 
Report your fishing results in the Forums section of this Web site. Doing so will help us all be better anglers.
See the recent Blog by member Les Wolfe about trout fishing in Colorado. It sounds like a fly fisherman's dream!
Two of our members are moving from the Ames area. Greg Geoffroy has moved to a lake near Brainerd, MN. He will spend his summers there and will winter in Florida. Jim Hendricks will be moving to south Florida in the next few months. He plans on doing a lot of bass fishing. Hope they both have room in their boats for old friends!
