New gear, coho fly on the agenda for meeting

Raincountry Flyfishers, a local fishing club, will meet at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, March 26 in the Thunder Mountain High School library.

Brad Elfers will describe newly-available fly fishing gear and provide instruction on how to tie a very productive silver salmon fly. Those wishing to practice tying should bring their own fly tying tools and thread. All other necessary materials will be provided.

The meeting is open to anyone. Both the meeting and materials are free.
