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.

We will try again to have our annual Fly Tying Extravaganza meeting!
Swing by the Schweinhaut Senior Center, 1000 Forest Glen Road, Silver Spring, MD on Wednesday night, April 18 (rescheduled from January and March) at 7:00 PM when the Potomac Patuxent Chapter of Trout Unlimited will host for your enjoyment our annual fly tying demonstration.
Great materials - cheap! This meeting also provides you with the opportunity to "stock up" on items you may have been looking for or need for that fly you're about to tie. Before hitting the fly shop or ordering on line, stop by our materials table and peruse all the great items we have available: capes, fur, feathers, hooks, etc., all at steeply discounted prices to help fill your tying bench. Most items only require a simple donation by you!
Make sure to wander around and visit each of our volunteer tyers as they pass along their skills and knowledge while demonstrating flies you can use on our local streams to catch fish. Take home a fly pattern recipe and don't miss this opportunity to shorten your learning curve while you move closer to the elusive goal of mastering this special art of fly tying.
