FLY FISHING -- The Spokane Fly Fishers are finished with their fall through early spring series of monthly programs. It's time for them to focus on fishing, and this is where the club members kick into another gear.

The wise students who enrolled in the club's extensive fly fishing course during the winter not only have the knowledge and skills to pursue fish with authority this season -- they also have a group to help lead them to fishing action that would take considerable time to acquire on their own.

Although there's plenty of private outtings underway and on the schedule this season, anglers who have been fishing this region for a long time mapped out the following schedule for the club's group outings.
