The Allegheny Mountain Chapter will be hosting a fly tying roundtable at their monthly meeting on January 16th at 7PM.  The location will be the conference room at the Mary Smeal Building at the DuBois Campus of Penn State.  Many tiers will be showcasing their talent including some pike and musky flies.  This is a great opportunity to come out and ask questions or learn a new technique. The public is invited to attend and there is no charge.

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.
