Fly Fishers of Davis will wade in to steelhead country

The Fly Fishers of Davis will host one of their own, Tristan Leong, at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 27. He will discuss his experience fly-fishing for Olympic Peninsula winter steelhead.

Leong recently returned from another successful March fishing expedition to Washington’s Olympic Peninsula and will provide insight (and pictures) to help others plan their own adventure.

In 2003, Leong joined the Fly Fishers of Davis. Although his work as an interdisciplinary scientist for the U.S. Forest Service has limited his ability to regularly attend the monthly meetings, he has remained connected to the club and active in his pursuit of fish on the fly rod.

Leong enjoys traveling throughout the Pacific Northwest in search of large wild and native rainbow trout and their anadromous counterparts.

The Fly Fishers of Davis normally meet to swap fish stories at 7:30 p.m. on the last Tuesday of the month in the multipurpose room at Harper Junior High School, 4000 E. Covell Blvd. The meetings are free and open to newcomers and guests. Come about 7 p.m. to check out the various outings, ask about the club or try your luck at the monthly raffle.

If you’re interested in learning to fly-fish, come to the meeting and ask anyone about our introductory and intermediate fly-fishing courses. The club is also working on a program for young fly-fishers (under 16).

For more information, call Lowell Ashbaugh at 530-797-6722 or visit www.flyfishersofdavis.org.
