Fly Tying Event For Charity

November Meeting

Tuesday, November 19th at 6:30pm. Our November meeting will be our ‘Annual Fly Tying Event’ for one of our favorite charities, ‘Project Healing Waters,’ a national organization that takes wounded and disabled vets to retreats located around the country, and teaches them fly tying and fly fishing, and also offers  addition support for their recovery process. Please join us as we tie flies to sell at the fishing shows  we attend and at all of our winter meetings.  Each year we do this in support of our  favorite charities and generally raise  about $500 per season which we then  present to our chosen charity. If you want to learn how to tie flies and learn how to fish them, please join us as we will have many members of Rhody Fly Rodders, some of the best tyers on the East Coast and they would be glad to get you started. So, come tie for charity and learn some fly patterns that will catch fish! As our chief fly tyer, Armand Courchaine says, “after you tie one of our flies, all you need then  is to add some water to catch a fish!” We will also have a brief update and explanation of The Atlantic States  Marine Fisheries Commission (ASMFC) recent decision to go with a 28” – 35” slot limit on Striped Bass, presented by our good friend, Peter Jenkins from  ‘Saltwater Edge.’ We’ll have plenty of free coffee, soft drinks and bottled water, with snacks of popcorn, & pretzels. Come have some fun and share some conversation with some friendly and knowledgeable people! See you there, bring a friend, bring two!
