Don's Lake Arrowhead Adventure

Submitted by Don Mulder

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.

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.
