This Monday night the McKenzie Flyfishers meeting will feature Frank Moore and a showing of a “short” 20 minute version of “Mending the Line”
The film tells a story about much more than flyfishing. It is a war story, a story of tragedy and healing, and at it’s heart, is a love story. The true tale of the love between Frank and Jeanne Moore and how flyfishing is woven into their lives. The McKenzie Flyfishers have permission to show a 20 minute version of the documentary film chronicling Frank’s recent return to France as he visits the Normandy beach he stormed on D Day. Frank will introduce “Mending the Line” and, weather permitting, do some casting during the Wet Fly hour.
Frank Moore is a recent inductee of the Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame, the builder of the famous Steamboat Inn on the North Umpqua and was awarded the Chevalier of the French Legion of Honor. He is an ardent conservationist, friend to many, and at the age of 90 can still cast a mile.
The meeting will be at Lewis & Clark catering on Monday May 19. Meetings start with the Wet Fly hour at 5:30 followed by a buffett dinner, fishing reports, a raffle and club business. The program usually starts around 7:45 pm.
Meetings are free and open to the public.
