The River Falls Fly Fishing For Trout Clinic is scheduled for June 3rd, from 1:00 to 9:00 PM. Our students will get a phenomenal introduction to this wonderful sport and will experience everything from casting and knot tying, to entomology, wading safety and fishing strategy. About 5:00 PM we’ll take a break for supper (yes, we supply supper) and get a little instruction on the importance of coldwater streams and
their ecology.

River Falls Parks and Recreation is charging the students $20 for the privilege of taking this class. Our chapter is accepting only $5 per student to helpallay the chapter’s cost for hosting this clinic. That allows Park and Rec to put the rest into their coffers.

The reason we’re able to strike a deal like this is because of the wonderful people in our chapter who volunteer to help out. Already we have 13 volunteers: Mitch Abbott, Sarah Sanford, Mike Colling, Benji Kohn, Herb Lundberg, Maria Manion, Scott Thorpe, Mark Peerenboom, Ron Kuehn, Kyle Amundson, Bill Hinton, Jim Kojis and Joe Schreifels.

If you’d like to join us in this endeavor, contact Brian Smolinski (brian@ or Michael Alwin (
