COFFoto of the month: Our new President, Jon Horn brings a young energy to the Central Ohio Fly Fishers. Here he is releasing a nice brown, taken this spring, from our home waters, the Mad River. Jon grew up on the Clear Fork, but spends equal time fishing the Mad, as well as surrounding states. In addition to his day job at Ohio State University, he teaches an evening class on Fly Fishing at OSU, where he is known as "Professor Dry Fly."
