Spring Event TOMORROW!!!

Spring is here (almost), and so is the Annual Spring Event.  16 Years ago, the TU Chapters in the valley wanted to create an event to foster a greater sense of community, share fish stories, and hopefully spread the word about TU.  The "Spring Event" was born.  Clever name huh?  Even though some of the faces may have changed, the recipe has remained the same:
  • 1 Part great program
  • 1 Part awesome raffle prizes
  • a dash of breakfast snacks
  • lots of TU members with Cabin Fever. 
  • Stir and repeat yearly.

16 years ago, we welcomed Dave Rothrock as the first presenter, and we have finally convinced him to come back.  If you like fly fishing, fly tying, catching fish or just want some doughnuts and coffee,  DON'T MISS THIS.

  • Where: East Bath Rod and Gun Club, ​7905 Township Line Rd, Bath, PA
  • When: March 10th, 2018 Doors open @ 9AM
  • Why:  Dave Rothrock is presenting and that is worth the price of admission ( its free), plus there is a great raffle.

Hope to see you there.

Monthly Member meeting 2/27...Tim Flagler!

Tightline Productions @ Monocacy TU:

If you have ever searched for fly tying on the internet, you have certainly come across the Tightline Fly Tying Videos by Tim Flagler.  With great production value and an easy to follow format that has plenty of detail but is clear and to the point, these videos are some of the best out there.

Join us  as we welcome Tim Flagler, who will be presenting "What's Happening Now".

Where:  DAR House 8th Ave, Bethlehem
When:  7pm
Other:  FREE Pizza,  HUGE Fly Tying material Sale!!!

Check out some of Tightlines Videos Here: (Click on the Top LEFT to see a list of all videos in the Group)

Check out these great resources from the PA DEP and Fish and Boat.  The DEP map that seems most interesting is located at the end of the presentation ( you have to scroll through), and links DEP Marco studies to water bodies.  It is very scientific, so don't expect to see "March Brown" or Blue Winged Olive.  A little google searching will get you the common names.  The Fish and Boat Map that is shown here lets you map trout streams and narrow them by your chosen criteria.  There are other great maps (click on "more interactive maps" near the top).  Do a little digging, and you might find a new place to fish!

EPA suspends Clean Water Rule

EPA suspends Clean Water Rule — implications for clean water?

What does EPA’s suspension of the 2015 Clean Water Rule mean for water quality, trout streams and anglers?

After several rounds of litigation, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced yesterday that it has finalized a rule that will suspend the 2015 Clean Water Rule for two years.
Two weeks ago, the Supreme Court unanimously ruled that district courts across the country—not the circuit courts—should be the first to hear the merits of cases regarding the 2015 Clean Water Rule.

Action Alert!

An important note from Dave Kinney, our Mid- Atlantic Policy Director.  Please call you Senator TODAY.  Most of us fall in Sen. Boscoloa's district, but you can use the link below to find out for sure.  I would suggest calling the Harrisburg office, as they are there today.  Thanks.
