General Chapter Meeting Information
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.

In the Footsteps of Joe Brooks: A Fly Fishing Perspective
a slideshow presented by Jerry Kustich
In the mid-70s a book by legendary Joe Brooks inspired a life-long fly-fishing journey that started in Idaho. Along the way, Jerry Kustich learned many lessons about rivers, the environment, bamboo rods, and life itself. From steelheading the West Coast and the Great Lakes, trout fishing Montana, striper fishing the East, or many other stops in between, the program details in slides a wonderful journey well worth sharing.
After working 22 years for R.L. Winston Rods, Jerry Kustich left the company in 2006 to start Sweetgrass Rods (http://www.sweetgrassrods.com/) with his longtime friend, mentor, and bamboo rod master Glenn Brackett. Jerry is a craftsman, writer, conservationist, and a dedicated angler. He has authored four books of fly fishing stories. His latest is entitled Holy Water. He also co-authored Fly Fishing for Great Lakes Steelhead with his brother Rick, which has become a classic. His articles have appeared in several publications, and throughout his semi-retirement years he plans on continuing to live the fly-fishing way of life.
See you there!
