Gloversville Satellite Chapter Meetings

Gloversville Satellite Chapter of Clearwater TU meetings every Third Thursday

Location: 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 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. This is not replacing the general chapter meeting 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 Curtis Mott Building at 7PM

Next meeting in September when classes resume.

More info TBA.
