A recurring comment our board hears from Brule “oldtimers” is how much they enjoy introducing newcomers to the river. There is a passion to pass their love of the river on to others, especially today’s youth. The hope is that others will enjoy all the Brule has to offer as much as we have and to develop a lasting commitment to the river. With all the external pressures on and threats to the environment in today’s world, the Brule will need all the advocates it can get in the future. Members have been offering descriptions of some of their favorite flies to help newcomers get a start. Non-members are welcome to suggest flies too (and join the Club as well!).
These are some of the board member’s favorite patterns.
