Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Here's wishing our members and friends, and all of their families, a most blessed Christmas and a prosperous and healthy 2017.  Hope everyone finds something under the Christmas tree that they can put to good use, especially in pursuit of our favorite pasttime. And let's not forget that at this time of year, to pray for those who are less fortunate, for those in suffering, and for our service men and women away from their homes and families.

The club has lots of fun things in store for 2017.  Including fishing trips to the Little Missouri River and to our favorite local waters.

Since its an odd year, we won't be having our biennial Natchitoches Fishing Expo (even years only).  However, a lot of our friends are holding their own events this coming Spring, including the Cenla Fishing Expo, the Little Mo Fly Fishing Fest, and the Acadiana Fly Rodders Conlave.  Check out our Calendar for dates and details on these and all other activities.
