My friends from the Long Island Flyrodders asked me to give a shout out about (I did that on purpose) the 3rd annual Long Island Fly Fishing Expo on Saturday, March 17, 9a.m-4p.m. at the Radisson Hotel, 110 Vanderbilt Motor Parkway, Hauppauge, NY Exit 53 on the Long Island Expressway.
You can find out more here.
I can tell you they throw a heckuva cookout. Wouldn’t it be nice to be in shorts right now?
Many thanks to the members of the Long Island Flyrodders for their generous, welcoming spirit. What an impressive crowd — I believe it was nearly 60 — on a fine summer’s evening. The Long Island Flyrodders know that a fed presenter is a happy presenter, and I must say that my cheeseburger, dog, beans, and — bonus! — bag of Cheetos really hit the spot. (The beer was tasty, too.) Thanks again for hosting me, and I look forward to a return engagement.
These folks know how to hold a meeting. Good spread, good people, good energy — the bar has been set to a new height.
Most fishing clubs go on summer hiatus. Not the Long Island Fly Rodders. In fact, they’ve booked yours truly to kick off their fall meeting season with “The Little Things.” I’ve heard rumors of a pre-meeting barbecue, so how can I resist? Tuesday, August 1, 6:30pm, at the Levittown VFW Hall, 55 Hickory Lane, Levittown, NY. For more information, visit liflyrodders.org.
Speaking of presentations, I’m currently working on “The Little Things 3.0” and an as yet untitled one on how I fish for striped bass.
If you want to catch big stripers like her, pay attention to the little things. (Using a floating line and learning the greased line swing doesn’t hurt, either.)
