The Historic Ocean Springs Saltwater Flyfishing Club
HOSSFly is a fly-fishing club that has been active in Ocean Springs since 1968. We get together in sportsmanship, fellowship, conservation and learning through the sport of fly fishing.
For more information please:
HOSSFly Club meetings are on the first Tuesday of each month at 6:00 PM at the Ocean Springs Yacht club, 100 Front Beach Dr., Ocean Springs, Ms. New members are always welcome. Dues are $25/year or $15 if paid by February 28.
During our meetings we plan fly-fishing related activities, hear fishing reports or a guest speaker, show a fly-fishing video, demonstrate knot tying, practice fly-casting or learn how to tie new flies.
July Meeting - Our program for the July meeting will feature our own MCI Syd Smith with a "refresher" course on casting fundamentals, followed by some casting games and some individual instruction. This is a great opportunity to remedy some of those bad casting habits you may have developed as well as for our new members to sharpen their skills This is also a great chance to "talk gear" and try someone else's favorite rod. Everyone please bring a favorite rod or two that you might like to talk about and share!
