NB: We try to coordinate our outings with the topics covered in the monthly chapter meetings. Preceding the meeting program we often offer fly tying demonstrations for the types of flies recommended for fishing on the upcoming outings.  

​​The Chapter is in the planning stages of our outings and social events for 2016-2017.  Our trips will accommodate all levels of fishing experience.
