By now most of our members have heard at least a rumor about fishing at Tara
Firma Farms. You may even have heard about how big the fish are that get
away. I've heard about several 10 lb. largemouth bass (there were actually
pictures) and endless bluegill and an occasional 15lb. catfish. I personally
have watched an experienced fly fisherman pull out a small 10" bass about
every other cast.
This year as part of our "Member Appreciation Month" we are kicking off
member hosted fishing outings for MEMBERS every other Sat at 8am- till???
Starting this Saturday 5/3/2014. We are extremely lucky and have a generous
member, Nick Morilla has offered to kick off the hosting for the first 3
sessions. We hope to find a couple other volunteer members who can host a
day or 2 a month and let that team start forming a little structure to
support more members using the farm for recreation.
Please if you've thought about fishing check out your rod and tackle, maybe buy
a worm or a new shinny thing and come on out with your gear and let’s see who
shows and have some fun. Better yet if you have some knowledge to share
about fishing and enjoy people come on out or email
firstname.lastname@example.org and volunteer to
help us make this a recreation center for the farm.
Let's get behind this and make it a regular thing and even though we have
seen some very happy fishermen as always results may vary with weather and
Reminder, all fishing is catch and release and barbless hooks if you got'm,
please take care to assure a live return.
I did say this is MEMBER ONLY outing and I know most of you have a
fishing buddy or maybe just a good friend who'd enjoy spending a morning
relaxing and telling stories so as another benefit we'd like to invite you
to bring up to 2 additional friends along to fish also. I'm betting that we
have members that will value that and I'm also betting some might want to
join so they get to come back and enjoy the healthiest food grown!
We'll see you out there at 8am this Saturday!!!!!
