GSO (Getting Started Outing) 2018
The Getting Started Outing is a fantastic event designed especially to help beginning fly fishers to get started fly fishing the Eastern Sierra. But even experienced old time members can join in the fun. Check out the line-up of guided activities. Register for the BBQ Dinner and those events that you qualify for. Note that a few are specifically encouraging beginners. Others are planned for more advanced anglers. Many are open to all. Or, don't register for any of the guided activities, but come and fish some of your favorite Sierra spots and get together with friends for meals and campfires.
You can get more information by clicking the "Additional Info:" link or going to "Getting Started Outing" under "Special Events".
We have NOT been able to reserve a group campsite for this outing. The recommendation is that members communicate with the Mammoth Ranger station or the campground as the date is closer to see what is available.
Click on the "Register Now" button. follow the instructions. Note that the BBQ Dinner is listed at $25.00 and youngsters under 12 are only $15.00 and the open bar is, of course, additional. You can pay Steve Ebersold (contact data is listed under the BBQ Dinner activity) before the event. Review the activities and check those that you want to do. Make sure that your selected activities don't overlap as it's rather difficult to float tube Crowley while casting dry flies on the Dana Fork. If you have difficulties, you may contact Jim Fleisher (818) 430-2909 (text or voice).

There is a charge for each student for these clinics. The fee is listed in each clinic description. You can pay online when registering or send a check made out to SPFF to our treasurer, Mike Hembree. Be sure to note the clinic on the check.
About our volunteer leaders
Other than the pay clinics, the rest of our leaders are volunteers. None are paid, certified, or licensed. They volunteer their time and knowledge purely for the love of our sport and their genuine desire to help our members and guests enjoy fly fishing. They are friends helping friends.
