Gene & Roger decided to try for some specks this cold morning. We fished the Big Lake area along the West side. For those that have never fished this area before, you should know this area gets pretty shallow. Especially at low tide!
These are our new MCFF T shirts. They are $15 each. Get with Gene to order your shirt.
MissisSippi Coast Fly Fishers

A few members took advantage of a nice morning fishing. Today's outing was at a the Harrison County Farm. We completed the required paperwork earlier this week and got our approval to fish. The weather was a bit chilly and very windy but our die hard members continued to have fun. Plans are in the works for another trip to this location. This was our recon outing and a more decisive plan will be in place for our next group outing. Another beautiful day hanging out with friends!
2020 MCFF Fly Fisher of the Year
It has been a tough fight all year for this one. Our 2020 Fly Fisher of the year is Harry Lamey. Harry has been a mentor in so many aspects of fly fishing and just a good guy to have in our fishing family. Our 2020 tournament was another exciting event. Lots of different fish were caught and submitted for this year’s event. As those bigger fish started appearing on the leader board, it caused the competition to tighten up and become harder to get a top three fish into the several categories. It never stopped anyone from submitting their catch at the last moment in attempts to shatter the leader board. A huge congratulations to Harry on a job well done! Congratulations to all others that received recognition and their awards. Now that 2020 is over, get those fish submitted for 2021! Good luck everyone!
What a day for some great kayak training at Flint Creek Water Park located in Wiggins, Ms. Hank was our instructor for this event. Several of our members took part in today's instructions. It was a perfect day starting with some open air classes under the large beautiful oaks. Hank gave an excellent block of instructions and some hands on training before entering the water. We laid out our equipment to be inspected. Suggestions were given and corrections were made prior to getting into the water. We eventually entered the water with some awesome enthusiasm for our next block of instructions. Our members took full advantage of tipping over and mounting back up just to do it again again and some did it again. LOL! On a very serious note. Our members completed this class with some very valuable training that could save their life or the life of another. Thank you Hank for a very detailed class! Your awesome!
We encourage anyone that has a kayak or plans on purchasing a kayak to attend this class. Being safe and knowing what to do while on the water can make for an exciting day and minimize the chance for things to go wrong.
