“Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after”.
By far this is my favorite presentation. This is a very different program. Instead of a program on catching more fish, or a fly fishing destination, the primary focus is on the fly fisherman. What is it that drives us to be so passionate about the ‘Quiet Sport’? “Who are we?” This program examines the various ‘stages’ in a fly fishers life, including the initial ‘discovery’ of the sport, the need to learn and educate ourselves more about it, it’s addictive powers, the friendships it has helped us form, the spirituality it has given us, and how it has provided us with a better understanding about where we fit in the world and universe.
A Message from the Vice President
Members and friends,
I hope that this message finds you well and that you have been safe and warm during this colder than usual fall season. I'm sure that you all are well on your way to building a great Thanksgiving for your family. I'm also sure that many of you have braved the temperatures to get out to fish, and some may have even gotten up to the Great Lakes tributaries for lake run anadromous fish like member John Atherton. I know that many folks like me and Paul Dinice, our guest speaker at the December dinner meeting, are still fishing the salt for Striped Bass.
I wanted to share with Chapter members a great video that John Atherton put together during his recent trip to the Salmon River in New York. You can view this video at: Steelhead 2022. I enjoyed this video very much and I'm sure that you will too!
The Chapter leaders still struggle with post (or perhaps nearly post) pandemic issues. We had our first meeting in November with Jeff Yates as our speaker. We had some wifi bandwidth issues, so our intention to broadcast the meeting live on the Chapter Facebook page was not successful. We will continue to try to have a hybrid meeting format for the future. Our January meeting speaker will be Steve Culton.
I encourage you to bring your spouse and/or guest(s) to the Chapter Holiday dinner meeting at the VFW Post in Guilford. We haven't finalized the menu, but I'm sure that there will be something that you will enjoy.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving and I hope that we see you soon.
