Eastbay Gold Prospecting & Treasure Hunting Club

About Me
I am an absolute beginner to Gold Prospecting, though I had a two-plus year membership with the GPAA several years back. My family and I went to a Gold Show, Gold Fever on Outdoor Channel, in Stockton, CA.
Unfortunatly, I never took advantage of any of the free "gatherings" on different sites throughout California. I would like to change that.

I am a single father with a 14 year-old daughter and a 16 year-old son. We enjoy camping, waterfowl hunting, upland game hunting (Turkey, Pheasant, Quail, etc).
I am also an avid Fly Fisher and Fly Tyier for over 30 years- having taught over a hundred students in both subjects...want to learn?

I have read many books and watched hundreds of shows on prospecting.
I hope I can meet some folks interested in showing some beginners how to do it. We have some basic equipment, and lots of heart and desire! Keep the GOLD, just give us some hands-on.

Rick Clemens and Family

Hi Rick
Fishing, gold prospecting and camping now that is a good thing to do. I have a fly tyeing kit that I have never used. I may be to old now, hands are shakey. Look forward to meeting you and the kids. Hope to see you at the next meeting on Jan. 27 in Concord.

Welcome aboard. I'd like to fly fish, have the pole & some flies but I have not had to much of a chance to do it. Theres another gold show coming up Feb. 20 & 21down in Fresno. I think there's a bunch of us going I think. As for me I'll have to see how Im feeling after my A.C.L. surgery. I moved from Tracy last year after I joined this club at its conception. It's grow and grow. I can only imagion what it's going become. Alot of good people to boot. See you at the next meeting.

Welcome Rick!! When the weather gets better, I'll invite your family to I-Bar; as my guests; I need a few fly fishing (casting) pointers and I'll give you folks some prospecting pointers!! Fair enough?
