The Greater Boston Chapter of Trout Unlimited will hold its September Meeting on Monday, September 26, at Drumlin Farm, 208 S Great Rd (Route 117), Lincoln, MA 01773 (http://www.massaudubon.org/get-outdoors/wildlife-sanctuaries/drumlin-farm).
Chris Jackson, head guide of Fly Fish The Deerfield Outfitters, will join us and talk about fishing in Western Mass during this year’s drought conditions, including the Deerfield and Swift Rivers. He will answer your questions and also speak about the Crowningshield Project, a management plan for the Deerfield, FERC, and related developments in Western Mass.
Chris Jackson has been fly fishing for nearly 30 years. He has dedicated his life to this sport, and his passion for fly fishing is contagious. He is committed to each client’s well-being and generously shares insights and tactics to elevate client skills to use on his home waters on the Deerfield and back home. His commitment to innovation, while also respecting tradition, will come through in his presentation.
An informal Casting on the Lawn gathering will take place before the meeting (5 pm) on the lower level, next to the Audubon store. Bring your rod, or just come as you are. There will be several skilled casting instructors who can give your some tips on your casting and talk about fishing techniques and places to fish.
The meeting starts at 6.30, with the program starting at approximately 7.30.
The donation is $10 per person, which includes a light supper and raffle tickets. We will also talk about the this summer’s Fly Fishing with YES program where a number of Chapter Members with Youth Enrichment Services of Boston worked with inner city youth and provided fly casting, fishing, entomology, and conservation instruction at their summer camp in the Berkshires.
