This month, our speaker will be Jeff Ferguson. Jeff recently moved to Lafayette from the Lake Charles area, and brings a wealth of casting expertise to our club.

He also serves on the Fly Fishers International Casting Board of Governors, and is also a member of the FFI Gulf Coast Council Board and chairs the GCC Casting Committee.

Jeff will be making a presentation called: "Take Control of Your Cast".  If you have a desire to achieve more from your cast knowing more is what you need, says Jeff.  He will discuss the parts of the cast and their contribution to loop shape and line layout.

As always, the public is welcome. Come early and bring your fly rod and join us for casting on the lawn behind Pack & Paddle. Or just come early and see what the store has to offer.
