General Chapter Meeting Info

A featured part of almost every month's membership meeting is the guest speaker program.  The Board of Directors spends a lot of time planning and arranging for the featured speakers. We begin by designing a general theme for each month's program and then follow up by identifying and booking potential speakers.

Safety While Fly Fishing
Michael Abramowitz
May 17, 2017 @ 7:00PM

We all know how to fish, but what about dealing with getting home safe after a day on the water?

From the common sense items, wading safely, lightening, hypothermia, bites, injuries, to getting lost on the streams etc., Michael Abramowitz will take us step by step through a checklist of things you should know to make your next fishing trip an enjoyable, memorable, and safe one.

What happens if you trip and fall in the middle of the river and your waders start filling with water? Accidents happen all the time and the best defenses are knowledge and preparation. This month's presentation by Michael will cover the best methods to prevent the most common potential accidents that can occur on a fishing excursion.

Whether you're on your local stream or back in the woods at a distant blue line, you'll learn how to respond safely and calmly to incidents so you can get back to your passion of fishing, trying to net the one that got away. More importantly, the information Michael provides may get you back home safely.
