Saltwater Fly Fishing Clinic Schedule

For 2009 the club has started an educational series of informal instructional clinics for beginning saltwater fly fishers. The objective is to provide a comprehensive overview of tackle, techniques, and essential knowledge to get folks going on the way to catch fish. The material will be presented by club members at monthly club meetings and fly tying sessions at First Light Anglers. The series concludes with a club fishing trip on the Merrimack River. We look forward to participation by members at all levels. If you have any questions or would like to discuss content or volunteer to help with the program, contact Charlie Newbold 978-692-2353 or see him at club meetings.
