"Fly Fishing the 3 Seasons of Alaska"
Thursday, November 18th 
7:00pm - 8:30 on ZOOM!

Brian O’Keefe, a self-proclaimed ski bum and fervent fly fisherman, will return to the November 18th Sunriver Anglers monthly meeting to present an overview of fly fishing the 3 seasons of Alaska.  Brian is a widely published and extensively traveled fisherman who also engages in scenic nature photography, his “hobby out of control”.  His work has been published in the major fishing magazines like Field and Stream, Outdoor Life and American Angler.  Brian will use his more than 50 trips to Alaska to form the wealth of information he will cover with the Anglers.  He has visited with the Anglers on several occasions over the years with his first discussion occurring in 1976.  Brian currently lives in eastern Oregon and works for Elevenexperience, Inc. out of Colorado as a writer, photographer, and booking guide.   A native Washingtonian, he has resided in several Central Oregon locations where he fully adopted the Oregonian lifestyle.

Brian intends to provide information on the geography/locations, techniques, equipment and proper lures for each of the distinct seasons of the Alaska fishing experience which runs from June 1 through October 1.  In addition, he will provide his perspective on the multitude of ways to access that experience ranging from the high end guided, lodge-based excursion to the self-guided camp-out along an isolated trout stream.  His main message for the Anglers is Alaska is accessible and he hopes to educate them on the short cuts, or ins and outs of traveling to one his favorite environments.  

More information on Brian’s activities can be found on his website athttp://brianokeefephotography.com.  Brian’s presentation to the Anglers will be via a zoom meeting, which will occur at 7:00 pm on November 18, 2021.   The zoom meeting access will open at 6:30 p.m.  Interested people may contact Rynie at ryniesra@gmail.com for information on the zoom meeting details.


NEW SECURE PROTOCOL.......


Rynie has been trying to maintain our easy access "one click" method of signing in for us, while also providing a secure platform for our meeting. The only way we can see this working is if we don't "share" the link with people we don't know.  If you have friends that want to watch our meeting, just have them, or you, send Rynie an email with their names to rynieSRA@gmail.com  (Must be name associated with the device they are using/or their Zoom account.)  Rynie has turned off the ability of having people join us with facebook, google or Apple ID. We will be locking the room when our guest speaker begins the presentation.  Please log in at least 5 minutes before 7:00 so we can let everyone in.  If you run into any issues, please text Rynie at 925-864-7844 with your email address so she can send you a separate invitation to join the meeting.
