February 2023 Chapter Meeting

February 15 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

FVTU: In-Person and Virtual Chapter Meeting

Destination Fly Fishing

Peacock Bass in the Brazilian Amazon & Heli-fishing for Trout in Patagonia

 

February 15th, 2024 @ 6pm CST

Guest Speakers: FVTU Members – Graeme Hodson & Al Johnson

Fox Valley TU Members, Graeme Hodson and Al Johnson, will be sharing their recent experiences on two destination fly trips hosted by the Driftless Angler in Viroqua, WI.

Graeme visited the Brazilian Amazon in late November/early December 2023 with a group hosted by Geri Meyer, co-owner of the Driftless angler, and Acute Angling.  The trip was focused primarily on Peacock Bass in the Rio Negro basin of the Brazilian Amazon.  The group lived aboard the Black Water Explorer for a week in remote areas of the Amazon.  The presentation will go into all aspects of the trip – immunizations, location, how to get there, what to expect, gear (rods, reels, flies, etc.), weather, clothing, costs, etc.

 

Al is visited Patagonia in January of 2024 with a group hosted by Geri Meyer, co-owner of the Driftless Angler, and SET Fly Fishing.  The trip offers lodge accommodations and daily helicopter drop-offs for walk and wade trout fishing in remote areas of Patagonia in Argentina. The presentation will go into all aspects of the trip – location, how to get there, what to expect, gear (rods, reels, flies, etc.), weather, clothing, costs, etc.
