Fly Fishing from a Stand Up Paddleboard

About 7:00 p.m.

Two days ago we didn’t even have a program scheduled.  Happily, Pat Vanek never gives up.  He found a program for our July meeting that looks great.  Hunter Harlow, who apparently has been hiding in plain sight right here in Waco, is going to talk about fly fishing from a stand up paddleboard.  For the more mature members of our club, don’t panic, you can secure a cooler to a paddleboard and sit from time to time.

Hunter Harlow is co-owner of Sendero Provisions Co, here in Waco, an adventure gear company that sells hats, prints and stickers. He’s also a well known stand up paddleboard (SUP) fly fishing expert, an ambassador of BOTE boards, and a pending Geology Ph.D at Baylor.  Hunter will be giving our club a presentation on the ins and outs of this growing sport. Hunter said he’d bring his board and paddle to check out, and I’m sure he can get you set up if you want to try this out. He fishes all of our local rivers including the Brazos and Middle Bosque.
