November 17, 2022 General Meeting

Improvements have been made to the audio at Highlands Community Club (HCC). The purpose is to encourage more people to attend our General Meetings in-person. There’s room to improve even more, but we seem to be moving in a positive direction.

Our November presenter was Lance Gray, who provided detail via Zoom on fishing Manzanita Lake. This lake is a fly-fishing still water destination for wild brown and rainbow trout. It’s located just inside the Northwest entrance to the Lassen Volcanic National Park. Lance detailed the flies he has found most successful there and talked about the casting techniques most effective. He is owner of Lance Gray & Company, a full-service outfitter. He's also an expert fly tyer and frequent author.

Once again, we identified some new faces at our meeting. Brian and Charlotte are neighbors of HCC, who have a strong interest in fly fishing and fly tying. Hopefully we’ll see them join in time for the Holiday Dinner.

The 2022 Holiday Dinner will be held on Wednesday, December 14th at Ladero Oaks. Please be sure to sign up before registration closes on Dec 07. Bianchini’s Market will cater the food, and we’ve specifically requested more vegetarian dishes. Happy Hour begins at 5PM, and dinner at 6PM.

There will not be a General Meeting in December, instead replaced by the dinner.

The December 1st Workshop will be on “Winter Steelheading” with George Revel. This will be an in-person-only event, so be sure to join us at the Highlands Community Club at 7:30.
