Note from Your Chapter President

July 7, 2015

Thanks to Dave Wolf, Russ Smith and Tony Valachovic for volunteering to participate in the Discovery Center’s “Under the Sea” day on Tuesday July 7.  #031 Al Hazzard was asked to participate as the leading organization in introducing kids into fly-fishing.  Tony, Russ, Dave and Jennifer taught fly-tying and casting lessons to over 40 students.  The students participated in various activities sponsored by the Discovery Center culminating with the tying and casting lessons.
Thanks again to the TU volunteers.
We had a fantastic willow planting on the Genegantslet Creek with the TU Chenango Chapter in early June.  Planting over 300 willows, this was a second phase to the earlier work done two year ago.  Those willows took root and the creek is looking fabulous.  Our thanks to Sam Scafidi and his chapter for asking us to assist on this great project.  More to come.
This June was pretty prohibitive as far as getting on the water so please consider getting involved in the chapter.  Any organization can use volunteers on any level.  Andy Nazak is offering to hold an advanced tying class (please contact me, Jennifer – if you are interested).  It is NOT necessary to be too formal, we can work it out and enjoy the great company that we always do.
Thanks to those who continually volunteer and answer the call when events arise.  I truly appreciate it.
Have a great summer and I hope when the rains stop you are able to get some good fishing in.

Upcoming meetings:

July & August: NO meetings, go fishing!

Sept 15: Adam Noah – Lackawanna River


Pay it forward!
