October Chapter Meeting

October 5, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Guest Speaker: Janine Young  Topic: Introducing, Encouraging, Teaching the Women You Know in Fly Fishing.

Janine Young grew up in Kentucky and started fishing as a young girl on her Aunt’s farm pond. Her grandmother taught her how to put a worm on a hook…needless to say she’s enjoyed fishing ever since. She started fly fishing when her husband and two boys moved to Colorado. Their favorite trip was to Yellowstone for fall break. It’s been 20+ years now and their family still enjoys fishing together.

Janine enjoys sharing her love for fly fishing especially with other women and beginners sharing her passion for nature, the beauty of a mountain stream and catching something wild in a wild place. Helping to watch a fly hit the water and see a trout take the fly transports you to another place, away from the cares of normal life.

 

Guest Knot Tier: Jim Chase

jimchase-bfIn a twist on our normal program, our guest fly tier will be replaced by a knot tying demonstration by Jim Chase.  Jim is Co-Director of our Fishing Buddy program, long time fly fisherman and avowed knot geek.  Drop by early and perhaps pick up a new knot or two.
