Join Us on a Fish With A Friend Outing

The spring trout season is finally upon us and the reports are excellent.  Water flows are strong, hatches are robust, and the fish are biting.  One member spent Saturday afternoon in the SNP on the Rose River and caught 12 brookies all on one Parachute Royal Coachman fly.  Join us on one of the FWF outings to see new water, improve your skills, or just spend time with quality people.
