August 17th meeting - Spotted Bass in Louisiana

AFR monthly meeting
Thursday, August 17, 2023

6:00pm meeting
Pack & Paddle Outpost, 601 E. Pinhook, Lafayette

This month, we'll have a guest speaker. Brian Roberts is a member of the Red Stick Fly Fishers and an avid flyfisher and excellent tier.

Brian will give a presentation on fly fishing for Spotted Bass in Louisiana. Spotted bass are an often overlooked species but a great target for fly fishers, as they live in beautiful sandy bottom rivers with swift current. Flyfishing is ideal for this environment as there are several fly angling techniques that are effective, from dead drifting topwater flies to stripping large streamers.

Come early and get in a little casting practice, weather permitting. Or come into Pack & Paddle and get some retail therapy.
