Gloversville Satellite Chapter Meetings

Gloversville Satellite Chapter of Clearwater TU meetings every Third Thursday

Location: Pine Tree Rifle Club.

Gloversville Chapter has a Facebook page as well!

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 to hone 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.

Please call\email Paul Borisenko or Ron Dorn 842-2593 for more information.  All are welcome and there is no fee to attend the Fly Tying Group

Schoharie Satellite Chapter Meetings

Meet in Center for Agriculture and Natural Resources building at 7PM

Schoharie Satellite members,

The meetings will take place in the new Center for Agriculture and Natural Resources building (CANR) in Room 002.  This room is the new Aquatic Sciences Lab and is spacious with very 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 contact me with any questions you may have.

SUNY Cobleskill Trout Unlimited Vice President

April General Meeting of Clearwater Chapter Trout Unlimited

Clearwater Trout Unlimited will hold its April monthly meeting at the Ramada Plaza Hotel in Albany (just off Everett Rd). April's  speaker is TBA.  Our guest fly tier will begin at 6:30 PM followed by meeting and presentation. Meetings are free and open to the public, all are welcome.

Clearwater Chapter TU received a HUGE donation of NEW fly tying materials from a fly shop that closed up and left the region and donated their fly tying supply inventory 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 new and not junk!

If you missed last couple meetings we had tables full of all kinds of fly tying materials selling for basically pocket change.  All funds received go right to the chapter, so come to the meetings and stock up on 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!
