The first meeting of the new season will be on October 21 at the Dublin Public Library. The meeting will feature the final drawing of the 20/20 Raffle for the $500 and $1000 prizes! Be there to claim your prize!
The June meeting will be June 17, starting at 6:30 at the Dublin Public Library lower level. Reed Curry will be here to informally chat with us about the studies he has done and he'll bring his UV light. With the light we'll see what the fish see, so bring your fly boxes! We'll also do the special TU edition Rod and Reel Raffle. We'll still sell tickets that night, $5 a ticket and draw the winner! This rod and reel feature both the Sierra Club and TU logos on both!
Come on out and get ready for the summer fishing!

For the March meeting we'll try something different! Come on out and bring your vise and some materials and tie some flies with us! We'll set up a "Swap" area where you can bring extra materials, tools etc to see if someone can use them! Of course, you can see what treasures you can find!
So come to tie, come to watch, come to learn! We've got some great tiers in the chapter and they are very wiling to share their knowledge.
