National Fishing and Hunting Day

The Inland Empire Fly Fishing Club was asked to help the Boy Scouts in celebrating “National Hunting and Fishing Day” in an event held at Camp Cowles at Diamond Lake on Saturday, September 30th. IEFFC Vice President Bob Johnson took charge of our involvement and gathered seven fly tyers to demonstrate fly tying to the kids and parents in attendance.

Over 700 people attended the event and our area was consistently busy with attendees watching flies being tied. IEFFC members tying included Johnson, Bryan Harman, Lee Funkhouser, Jerry McBride, Bob Schmitt, Jerry Harms and Phil Beck.
Flies that were tied by our members were given to the kids, along with an explanation of what the flies represented and how to fish with them. We received a very good response from the kids and their parents.
