Member Matters – February 2021


Grande Ronde River

Click in to the February Meeting for Steelhead Essentials!

Please join fellow FCO members to hear beloved fly fishing guide and conservationist, Marty Sheppard, talk steelhead fishing. A lifelong fisherman, Marty tells fishing like it is. His practical guidance and enthusiasm for nature make even a cold windy trip on the river memorable and often quite successful. Whether on the Deschutes, Sandy, John Day, or Grande Ronde, Marty and his team from Little Creek Outfitters know the techniques to get you in to fish. And they host a terrific camp!

Welcome New Members!

Even though it has been nearly a year since we last met, we have new members who love fly fishing and want to connect with others steeped in the sport. Thank you new and renewing members for your continued interest and support of the Flyfishers’ Club of Oregon – nearly 60 years strong! Please welcome these two gentlemen:

Bill Valenti hails from Portland and enjoys fishing, photography, and fly tying.

Glenn Zinkus has joined as an associate member from Corvallis. His interests are fly tying, writing and photography for fly fishing and other outdoor magazines.

Wow Bill and Glenn! If you would like to share one of your photos with or without a story for the Flyline, please contact your Flyline editor!

Please Pay Your Dues!

In case you missed it, Membership Chair Rick Pay sent all members an email in late January (mine came in on 1/24/21, hint, hint) reminding them to renew their membership. Please click here to pay your 2021 annual dues. Thank you!
