    Due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation, the Board acknowledges that the safety of our members is the most important thing for us to be thinking about this Spring. With that in mind, we have decided to cancel the General Membership Meeting for April, the Spring Seminar, and the Monthly Tying Clinics for April and May. Additionally, the F3T and the Great Alaska Sportsmans Show have been cancelled or postponed.

    We will keep you up to date as further information becomes available. In the meantime, please do whatever you need to do to stay safe and we look forward to seeing you at one of our functions in the future.

    As part of our organizational agreement with Fly Fishers International, AFF can obtain some merchandise based on the number of new members for FFI from our Club each year. This year we were able to get a TFO 8wt 4 piece rod. We added a TFO 7-8 Large Arbor Fly Reel to the rod and held a drawing at the November 2018 meeting. To be entered in the drawing, you had to be a new FFI member in either 2017 or 2018. The winner was Shayne Pond of Sterling and he was completely surprised! When Rich called him to let him know his first reaction was "Winner? Of WHAT?" He picked the items up this weekend and was pretty excited! Congratulations, Shayne! Thank you for being a member of FFI.

    Monday December 3rd at 6:30 PM, BP Energy Center

    Annual Gift Exchange is the highlight of the evening.

    The rules are simple: Bring a gift! – get a gift!

    The gift should be in the $20 to $25 price range, wrapped, and hopefully fly fishing related. Check in with Rich when you get there and exchange your gift for a ticket. When it’s time, we’ll start drawing tickets. As your ticket is drawn, you get to choose a gift from the pile. Once we’re out of tickets, the extra gifts packages will go into the Ghillie Raffle.

    What extra gifts you ask? Shouldn’t this be a break-even exchange?

    Welcome to Christmas!!!

    The club has added a few special gifts of our own to the basket; and all of them are definitely above the suggested amount from members. Choose your package carefully as I understand that Bob Bechtold is very good at disguising big things in small packages. Or was it small things in big packages? I forget exactly…

    December is also the month that we feature some short programs from our own members. Keven Kleweno and Rich Johnson are on tap to share some of their fishing experiences.

    Keven will be talking about fishing with Family & Friends, Rich will be sharing his experience and opinions on the Kvichak River and Seasons on the Fly Lodge.

    Our General Membership meeting on October 1st will be held at the normal time - 6:30 PM - at the BP Energy Center. Our Guest Speaker will be Tom Logan, Chairman of the Board of Fly Fishers International and owner of North Florida Fly Fishing Adventures

    The first part of the meeting will be about FFI. We are an affiliate club and encourage all our membership to join their organization as well. This meeting will explain why you should seriously consider it.

    Then Tom is going to give a presentation about the Tallahassee, Florida are where he lives and the fly fishing opportunities there. A nice change of pace for us since we have no warm water fisheries here. 

    And if you have Photos for the Photo Contest, you can bring them to the meeting. Last day to submit is October 9th! Entry Information and submission form are HERE.
