HomeBarbecue & Fiesta




This "meeting" lets everyone tell fish stories and enjoy good food! This is a great opportunity to enjoy a great barbecue dinner with fellow club members. Past DVFF Barbecues have included a wine toss, a "fly-casting for wine" challenge before dinner, a door raffle and a silent auction with great items such as custom-built fly rods.

Tickets include one raffle ticket and additional raffle tickets will be available at the event. Seating is limited and this event is likely to sell out. Expect this event to take place during one of the summer months, usually with the doors opening about 6 p.m. and dinner at 7:15 p.m.

2017 Trout Season Opener "Fiesta"

Celebrate the start of the 2017 Trout Season at the DVFF Season Opener Fiesta. Dinner will be buffet-style Mexican, along with beer and wine, in Chateau Hall at the Pleasant Hill Senior Center. Guest speaker Justin Collmann, Ph.D. will offer a unique take on fly fishing with his presentation “Fly Fishing with the Shoulds.”

Justin is a clinical psychologist and fly fishing and tying enthusiast who grew up fly fishing the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee with his father. Now he spends his summers fishing small streams in the Sierras and lakes near his Sonoma County home. He applies his psychological perspective to fly fishing issues to help himself and others in feeling more relaxed on the water. (Something that might be needed when that big one breaks off!) Later in the evening there will an update on 2017 outings and reflection on those that took place during 2016.

Social hour from 5:30-6:30 p.m., dinner at 6:30 p.m., program at 7:45 p.m. Tickets: $40 in advance online (click here to make reservations) or by check at the March Meeting); $50 day of at door.
