Truckee Tahoe Fly Fishers to hold annual dinner
The Tahoe Truckee Fly Fishers will hold its annual fundraising dinner on Friday, Oct. 15 at the Cedar House Sport Hotel located on Brockway Road in Truckee. The event will begin with a no-host cocktail hour at 6 p.m., followed by a great dinner and a terrific silent auction and raffle. Cost for the event is $50 per person in advance, or $55 at the door.
The Tahoe Truckee Fly Fishers are a group of individuals dedicated to promoting the sport of fly fishing and protecting our areaand#8217;s resources. Funds generated by the club at the annual dinner fund projects to this goal.
According to president Dave Lass, and#8220;This dinner allows the club to provide quality guest speakers, organize fish outings, educate our youth in the sport of angling, and pursue and lead local conservation campaigns in our watershed.and#8221;
Some of the programs that the fly fishers are involved with are the Truckee River Clean-up, programs to improve the Truckee river such as their work in conjunction with the Watershed Council, and our education program such as the Cliff Frazier Youth program that is handled through the Truckee Donner Recreation Program.
The fly fishers hold monthly meetings, regular club outings and classes to improve their skills. The classes have included fly tying, rod building and fly casting.
Each year attendees have a great time visiting with one another. Many times this is the only time that many of us see each other on a social basis.
The dinner will be capped at 75 people, so get those reservations in early for this once-a-year extravaganza. It is a great time to get to mingle with some of the best fly fishers in our area and one of the best clubs in Northern California.
The public is welcome, but members do receive preferential sign-ups towards the 75-person cap. Should you be interested in becoming a member, go to the website at http://www.ttff.net. For more information on the annual dinner or to sign up, call Dave Lass at the Truckee Trout Unlimited Office at 530-587-7110.
