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.

Trout Haven: Fly Fishing Paradise in Central PA
Andrew Trelease
April 19, 2017 @ 7:00PM

Discover one of Pennsylvania's premier limestone spring fisheries, Spruce Creek. Andrew Trelease, Owner and Operator at Trout Haven, will be discussing his favorite trout fishery, its fish, its pools, and its hatches.

By anyone's definition - eastern or western - Spruce Creek is premier trout water. This is a private stream, with a lot of fish - big fish. Rainbows, browns and brook trout - they're all here. Fish in the 20-inch class are common, and insect hatches are year-round. No need to book airline tickets for an exotic trip, just travel a few hours northwest to Spruce Creek and you'll have a world-class fly fishing experience.

Andrew Trelease is a licensed fishing guide in Pennsylvania. He has been fly fishing for 11 years and he currently owns Trout Haven, an exclusive fly fishing guide service in central PA that hosts fly fishing adventures on a spectacular private trout stream. Andrew was raised in the Catskill region of NY where he grew up fishing some of the northeast's most renowned trout streams, including the two branches of the Delaware, the Beaverkill, and the Willowemoc Creek. Andrew is an accomplished musician and avid fly tyer; you can often find him practicing both pursuits when he's not guiding.
