'Tips and Tricks to Catch more Fish'
Gretchen will cover fresh water fishing strategies, what impacts the fish bite, what flies work for what circumstances, the do’s and don’ts that impact catching and will explain why she caught fish when none of the other 12 flyfishers at the Lower Otay Club outing in 2021 caught anything.
Long time member Paul Woolery has provided some input for Gretchen's presentation and our membership chair Alan Thompson will speak about his strategies that worked at Rock Lake. Other club members will be mentioned for their input over the 35 years that Gretchen has been a club member.
