Member Meeting Feb. 25th, 7pm. Tim Flagler!

Join the Monocacy Chapter at 7pm, Tuesday February 25th as we welcome Tim Flagler of Tightline Productions.  If you have ever searched for fly tying videos, you have almost certainly come across Tim's videos.  Tim will be presenting: 

From the basics to advanced techniques. Presentation will illustrate how to get started by converting a standard trout rod, say, a 9’ 5 weight into a functional Euro-Nymphing set-up and the multiple steps that can be taken after that to produce an advanced outfit. Presentation will cover not only equipment, but flies and on-stream strategies and techniques as well. 

Tim has been featured as a presenter and tier at many venues around the country. He is a regular guest tier and presenter at the International Fly Fishing Symposim, as well as the numerous locations of the Fly Fishing Show.  Tim's fly tying video productions featured on the Orvis and Midcurrent web pages, among others.  Here is a sample of one of these outstanding videos:

Mayfly numbers drop by half.

Mayfly numbers drop by half since 2012, threatening food chain
Mayflies, which form swarms in the billions that are visible on weather radar, are in steep decline, mirroring the plight of insects worldwide.

Every summer, mayflies burst forth from lakes and rivers, taking to the skies of North America. These insects, which are particularly abundant in the northern Mississippi River Basin and Great Lakes, live in the water as nymphs before transforming into flying adults. They synchronize their emergence to form huge swarms of up to 80 billion individuals—so massive that, in waterside towns, they are sometimes scooped up with snowplows.

Petition to support Lehigh River Trout Fishing

Please see the link below and consider signing a petition to ask the US Army Core of Engineers to consider trout fishing (wild and stocked) as they conduct a re-evaluation study of the Francis E. Walter Dam.

The petition was started by the Lehigh Coldwater Fishery Alliance.
