September Meeting / News Update


At our monthly meeting on September 17, chapter members Sig Holtz, Joe Rist, and Mke Butts will conduct a "Fall Casting Tune Up."  Bring your favorite rod and reel, or that new rod you've been waiting to line up and cast.  Or, swap rods with someone else and try something new.  This is an informal casting session aimed at helping beginners and experts alike.  We will begin at 6:30 on the field at the American Legion Meeting Hall (our regular meeting space).


Last month I told you about a couple of upcoming events and projects.  Here is a reminder and status update:

Our annual STEWARDSHIP DINNER IS NOVEMBER 10 -- SAVE THE DATE.                                                     

We are making progress with plans for this event, but there's still a lot to do.  Auction items and prizes will include

  • A hand made chest, fully stocked with fly tying materials. 
  • Fly rods, and reels
  • Gift certificates from area merchants                                                                                        

Dave Morrison is chairman of the 2018 Stewardship Dinner Committee. We are looking for a few more folks to help out. Interested?  Talk to Dave at the next meeting, or email him at   

MHTU WATERSHED GUIDE - Mike Butts is chairing our efforts to reissue the MHTU Watershed Guide.  Mike is revising the copy, and working with the printer to include updated maps and photos.  We are looking for ads from local businesses to help offset the cost.   If you would like to join the committee, or place an ad, talk to Mike (and he will share one or two of his honey holes with you... well, maybe). Catch him at the September meeting or email Mike at
