Fly-Tying Roundtable

If you’re like most, winter is starting to be a drag. Well we have a cure for that – the weekly fly tying roundtable and story time (aka tiers and liars) is back! Starting this Thursday February 1st we will meet at the DEF Building at the DuBois Campus of Penn State room 202. The entrance is on campus side as the front is Career Link . This is the building on the corner of Rt. 255 and Sixth St. We will start at 6:30 and run till 9PM . You need not be a fly tier to join us. If you’re a beginner or need some explanation on how to tie a fly this is the place to be. There is no charge and we welcome everyone so please spread the word. The plan is to meet each Thursday to tie and talk for the next 6 weeks. There may be a fishing outing in March weather permitting.

Happy New Year!

Hard to believe we have come to the end of another year. As we celebrate the New Year, tradition is to reflect on the past year and make some resolutions for the new.

Education remains a priority for our chapter. We started off last year with Rich Ferra stepping up and teaching our fly tying class. Fourteen students attended, with an evening on the stream at the end. Nine of our members along with some members of other area chapters took the time to become certified fishing skills instructors. We now have a good number of people who can host fishing programs to the public and get fishing license waivers to help bring more anglers into our sport. Due to the great participation, the Clearfield County Conservation District will now be a rod loaner site, thanks to Kelly Williams. Several of these new instructors traveled to Bellefonte to become fly fishing instructors as well.
