Monthly Meetings

McKenzie Flyfisher’s meetings are held at Willie’s Lebanese and Northwest Cuisine ( 400 International Way, Springfield, Oregon 97477 ) on the third Monday of each month. Meetings are open to the public and doors open at 6pm. Most folks arrive by 6 in order to tell fish stories and sip a beverage from the cash bar. A delicious buffet dinner, $20 – check or cash only, is normally served around 6:30 pm, and is followed by the introduction of guests, and a short update on club business. There is a break after dinner, then a presentation by our featured guest speaker, usually a guide or fishing expert familiar with the Northwest fishing scene, followed by a raffle of fishing items.
