The Fly Fishers of Davis will hold their annual “Home-Grown” program on Tuesday, when members of the club will illustrate various aspects of fly fishing. The evening will start with a short presentation by Kevin Mathers of Trout Unlimited, who will describe conservation efforts being undertaken by the group and how to get involved.

The December meeting is also the group’s annual business meeting. Election of officers for 2013 and two new board members to serve three-year terms beginning in January are planned.

“For the main event, we’ll set up a series of stations that you can visit as you wish,” said spokesman Lowell Ashbaugh.

“Want to improve your fly fishing photos? Maybe make those dinks look like lunkers? Paul Berliner will show you ‘How to Improve your Fly Fishing Snapshots with PhotoShop.’

“Interested in learning to fly fish? Or maybe you took our Fly Fishing 101 course and would like to learn intermediate techniques? Dana Hooper will have information on Fly Fishing 101 and 102 classes,” Ashbaugh said.

“Do you have trouble with knots or with joining leaders to your fly lines? Bob Zasoski will show how to become an expert.

“Ever wanted to learn how to fish Pyramid Lake? What’s with the ladders, anyway? Cary Boyden will describe how and why to use ladders, the flies you need to use, best places to fish, etc.”

The Fly Fishers of Davis normally meet to swap lies and fish stories at 7:30 p.m. on the last Tuesday of the month. This month, the meeting has been moved to Dec. 11 to avoid conflicts with the holidays and will take place at Harper Junior High School, 4000 E. Covell Blvd.

The meetings are free and are open to newcomers and visitors. For more information, call Ashbaugh at 530-758-6722 or visit the club’s web page at www.dcn.davis.ca.us/go/ffd.
