April meeting canceled…

In what is probably a first in Chapter meeting history, there is a conflict with our meeting space (DAR House) for the second month in a row. We sincerely apologize that the April meeting will have to be cancelled.  Next month will be our “Fishing the Evening Hatch” meeting, which will go on come hell or high water, or both!

Additional programming is being explored to make up for the cancellations.  

Thank you for your understanding and support of our Chapter.

March meeting canceled..


Sorry for the confusion, but not only was the date wrong on the previous message, but we will NOT be having a meeting in March.  There was a conflict with our meeting place, and we had the very successful Fly Fishing Film Tour at Steel Stacks last night.  We hope you are getting some pre-opening day fishing in!
