Clearwater Chapter TU
recently received a HUGE donation of NEW fly tying materials from a shop
owner who left the region and donated all of it to the chapter. We are
going to be selling portions of these materials each monthly meeting at
RIDICULOUS prices as a fund raiser for our conservation efforts and renting
the meeting room expenses, etc. Come and get these materials such as
synthetics, furs, feathers, hair, chenille, thread, floss, flash, beads,
eyes, buck-tails, marabou, etc. It is not junk!
If you missed September's meeting we had tables full of
synthetics, krystal flash, saltwater materials, and deer hair for 25 cents a
package. Try and find that material anywhere else for that price!
All funds received go right to the chapter, so come to the meetings and
stock up your tying supplies for winter and find out what is going on with
Clearwater Chapter TU.
Help a brother out and get this
stuff out of my basement too!

Gloversville Satellite Chapter Meetings
Satellite Chapter of Clearwater TU meetings every Third Thursday
Pine Tree Rifle Club.
At the last Gloversville Satellite Chapter meeting it was
decided that a Fly Tying Group would meet on the first Thursday of the month
at the Pine Tree Rifle Club
our tying skills and tell a few fish stories. Since there are some newer
members, and everyone can probably use a tune up, the group will be starting
with the basics. This is intended to bring everyone up to the same level and
allow the group to move on and build skills along the way. It is not a
replacement for general meeting noted below.
Gloversville regular chapter meeting is held on the
Third Thursday of the month at the Pine Tree Rifle Club.

Agriculture and Natural Resources building (CANR) in Room 002.

comfortable seating. We will be providing free coffee and donuts as well.
The SUNY Cobleskill student sub-chapter of Trout Unlimited
will be having its first presentation of the year and we would like to
invite you and your other club members to attend. Next weeks presenters
will be David Lucykanish and Eric Malone who worked with Idaho Fish and Game
this previous summer. Dave worked on an electro-fishing crew and Eric
worked on a backcountry crew doing snorkel surveys. This talk will focus on
endangered migratory salmon, steelhead and bull trout and their current
status in the Pacific Northwest.
Thank you all for your time and we hope to see you there.
Spread the word and feel free to forward this email along to your members
and others who might be interested in attending. Please

you may have.
