Our monthly speaker for July 26, 2016 will be world record holder Meredith McCord. Meredith will be speaking to the club about her quest to catch 100 line class records (she’s currently at 99) as well as about her travels and the techniques used to accomplish this milestone.  So, if you would like to see some fine fly tying before the meeting, mingle with other fly fishermen and fisherwomen and hear a fine speaker, come to the July meeting we would be glad to have you.

Thanks, Meredith
