Tax season is over
so I finished building a new 5 wt. rod and went fishing. I caught a
couple of Perch in the surf and then went on an after tax season get-
away to Lake Arrowhead. From the shore and a dock I caught a personal best
Crappie, four small mouth bass and some trout. I caught my biggest fish
ever – twelve pounds on the Boga! I was planning to release everything
and didn’t even take a net along. The people at the dock said I had to
keep the planters because they won’t live. I don’t know if this is true
but I took it.
Lake Arrowhead is a great fishery but it is private,
you need the Lake Association card to fish or be some ones’ guest as I
was. It is strictly monitored, the lovely patrol lady will ask you very
politely but firmly and make sure you leave if you don’t have a card.
The Downey Fly Fishers is a club consisting of men, women and children who share a common interest, the enjoyment of fly fishing. The Downey Fly Fishers meets at the Barbara J Riley Community Center (at Apollo Park) in Downey, California (Los Angeles) on the 2nd Tuesday of every month at 7:00pm. Visitors and new members are always welcome to attend.

April 8, 2014 Monthly Meeting
DFF Movie Night “Once in a Blue Moon”
New Zealand is the setting for this award winning 2009 DVD. What happens when mice get a banner year of seeds to feed on? Those mice aren’t rabbits, but their population explodes to a point of igniting a mass migration. They have to cross moving waters and New Zealand’s streams and rivers are home to beastly trout that don’t get that way being a vegan!
Gorgeous videography both above and below the water punctuates an unbelievable natural occurrence that is the dream of any angler that has ever caught a fish. This isn’t just a big fish fishing video by any stretch of the imagination. You will be asking for more after the 45 minutes are up. New Zealand is a spectacular setting for this amazing story of what can happen in nature when certain separate events converge.
Tod Suttle will be doing a fly tying demo from 6:00 – 7:00; pizza and beverages will be served.
We will have Joe Margiotta of the Kern River Fly Shop at our May 13th meeting.
