I want to take another opportunity to give a “shout out” to another Nebraska fishing organization. I love the opportunities I have to interact with the different fishing groups/clubs in Nebraska . The folks involved in those organizations are serious enough about their fishing that they join together with other anglers and then do a lot of things that benefit the sport of fishing and our state’s fisheries resources. Besides that they are hard-core anglers and whenever I get together with folks like that we can talk fishing for hours. I would love to be a dues-paying member of all Nebraska’s fishing organizations, but in my position as Fisheries Outreach Program Manager for the Nebraska Game & Parks Commission I do not want to play favorites to any one organization or club and I simply cannot be a member of all of them. I do try to stay up-to-date with most Nebraska fishing organizations and I appreciate the opportunities I get to interact with any and all of them.
One of those opportunities is coming up this Wednesday evening. I am planning to be at the monthly meeting of the Cornhusker Fly Fishers. Their meetings are held on the third Wednesday of every month at our Ak-Sar-Ben Aquarium. The meeting starts at 7:00 p.m., but I am betting there will be some folks there tying flies before that. Or show up early and spend some time walking around the aquariums looking at the fish.
I plan to speak at the meeing, will be covering the wide variety of fishing opportunities available in Nebraska. Always remember, fly-fishing is NOT just for trout! Hope to see you there!
