The Atlanta Fly Fishing and Camping Meetup Group (AFFCMG) was founded September, 2007 by Justin Fuller. He wanted to create a social group for fly fishing enthusiasts-a place where new fly fishers would feel comfortable learning amongst friends and could benefit from some of GA’s most experienced trout bums. Rene Hesse a Certified Fly Casting Instructor with the Federation of Fly Fishers has been passed the baton as Organizer in recent years with hope of continuing the spirit of Justin's vision and taking it to the next level- To educate and inspire.
Group membership is very diverse, with a wide variety of fly fishing experience. Skill level ranges from FFF Certified Fly Fishing Instructors to beginners…
Sandy Phillips worked out a deal for the group to have a day at Fern Valley on the Soque river for the day. We can have 10 people (they have opened the meadow so that is enough water for 10) Sandy will be hosting it and be your contact person. The fee will be paid at the river to Marty and Glad so locking in a spot will be based on first to register on the meetup site. I will not be able to attend but may be able to field questions along with Sandy.
These are large trout on a barbless stream. Bring a wading stick, change of cloths and lunch. I wouldn't use less than a 5wt rod. If some of you have fished it before and want to post what you have had luck on, feel free.
Check out the Fern Valley website and pay attention to the directions, it is easy to miss, just like all good streams should be. http://fernvalleytrout.com/25/index.php
