Sept. 12th: Toothy Critters of the Okefenokee

By  | 

September 12, 2018 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Steve Zakur, past CVTU President and itinerant angler, fishes in some strange places. Last year he wandered to the Okefenokee Swamp in Florida with some pals to avoid being eaten by alligators while fishing for bowfin.
The weather in the Okefenokee was brutally hot, the air filled with bugs, and gators loomed in every direction.
The fishing. Yeah, it was good. Different, but good.
Leave your trout rod at home!
The chapter meeting is held the second Wednesday of each month at the Stony Hill Fire House at 59 Stony Hill Road in Bethel. Doors open at 7 p.m. with pizza and drinks and the meeting begins at 7:30.
Chapter Meeting Monthly Fly Raffle — tie your best blue wing olive patterns! Dry, nymph or wet.
The fly raffle is a fun way to see the creativity of our fly tiers. It is about sharing patterns and contributing to the club community. Fly tiers of all experience are welcomed and encouraged to participate.
Here’s how it works:
  1. Submit eight flies for the raffle at each monthly meeting. Six will go towards the raffle and two will go into a master fly box for the 2019 banquet.
  2. Bring your flies in a small plastic cup or other small container with your name written on it.
  3. Fly recipes or links to videos are optional.
  4. If you don’t tie flies, you can submit store bought flies.
  5. When you drop off your flies at the beginning of each monthly meeting, you will receive a raffle ticket.
  6. The person whose ticket is pulled at the end of the night wins all of the raffle flies for that monthly meeting.
  7. One entry per person per meeting.

Each Month Will Feature a Different Fly Theme
