Speaker-March 30, 2021 Monthly Meeting – Jerry Coviello; Fly Fishing for Yellowstone Cutthroat Trout in Yellowstone’s Lamar Valley and Wyoming’s Greybull River

Jerry Coviello

First a little bit about our speaker, Jerry Coviello. A resident of Pennsylvania and a long time fly fisher and Fly Fishers International (FFI) member, in 2017 Jerry was selected as Chairman of the Board of Governors of FFI’s Fly Tying Group (FTG). In that position, Jerry has been a driving force in updating the FTG’s website and has developed a Beginner Fly Tying Workshop, which is a downloadable product for chapters/clubs and individuals to download and use to learn about fly tying and how to get started tying flies. For those of you interested in fly tying or in learning about tying flies, visit the FFI website https://flyfishersinternational.org/Tying/Fly-Tying-Group   Additionally, with regard to fly tying, Jerry hosts a weekly tying class on his Facebook Page, “Jerry’s Fly Tying Tips”.

Jerry’s presentation will open with a brief discussion of the FFI Tying Programs and then cut into his presentation, Fishing for Yellowstone Cutthroat Trout in Yellowstone’s Lamar Valley and Wyoming’s Greybull River. 

Through the miracle of video technology, Jerry will walk us through Yellowstone National Park which will serve as a reminder that the park sits on top of a volcano caldera. Wyoming’s Greybull River runs through some of the most remote backcountry in the Greater Yellowstone. Along its 90-mile corridor, water travels from snow-capped peaks in the Absaroka Mountains to sagebrush flats at its confluence with the Bighorn River. The Greybull River watershed is famed for supporting the best genetically-pure populations left of Yellowstone cutthroat trout, a species decimated elsewhere in the West by non-native species and altered water flows. In that regard, the river’s high-quality aquatic habitat is spurring efforts among many landowners to join with partners to protect and restore this biologically-important watershed.

So, if you are interested in fly fishing in the Yellowstone area or are just interested in learning more about fly fishing in any respect, you will not want to miss this presentation. Be sure and look for your e mail from club Secretary, Eric Richardson or Membership Chairman, Bob Brill with details about joining the zoom meeting.
