OUR NEXT CHAPTER MEETING:
Brook Trout Night with
November 8, 8:00p
Join NCC-TU for a talk on fishing for Brook Trout in the area by the President of the Tidal Potomac Fly Fishers. Join us at Rock Bottom Brewery in Bethesda for good food, good beer and good times. We will have plenty of fishing goods, equipment and apparel for sale and auction so be sure to attend!
Passing the torch: The May meeting was be my last as Chapter president. Our next Chapter year events (2017-2018) will include the annual fall fund drive, a new Project Healing Waters program at the Washington VA Hospital led by Dan Sheesley, Shad Night led by Mark Binsted, and on September 26, the Chapter hosted a successful showing of the International Fly Fishing Film Festival at the Avalon Theatre.
These activities enable us to continue funding projects consistent with our core mission in the mid-Atlantic region and beyond. Our new president in the fall , pending election at the October meeting, will be Andrew Reichardt, a member of the millennial generation, who has great ideas for the Chapter.
Tight lines, @TomTruite
Each Spring the Chapter publishes email reports on the status of the shad run in the area, particularly as it develops on the Potomac River at Fletcher's Cove in DC. If you wish to receive these reports send an email from the address you want us to use to email@example.com with "SHAD" in the subject line. No need to re-subscribe if you received these reports in 2017.
