April Meeting

All group events scheduled thought April are put on hold, including the clean up. The Covid 19 is taking its toll across the nation and we should face the reality that we need to consider canceling some of our activities. We cancelled our monthly chapter meeting for April and Tie and Lie for now.

Thanks

Steve Darnell

March Meeting canceled

March meeting has been canceled due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

We are hoping on being able to meet in April.

But the good new is all Trout streams are still open.
So go fishing and be safe.

J.R. and his wife Peggy moved to Knoxville in 1981 to pursue graduate degrees in Zoology at the University of Tennessee under the direction of the famed Dr. David Etnier. There J.R. and Peggy raised their family while both continued interests in rare fish, and established their own approaches for furthering aquatic conservation. Following graduate school, CFI was formally established in 1986, and later incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1992.
