Hidden River Film Showing

Hidden River We’ve been working with Friends of the Smokies, the Great Smoky Mountain Association and Tremont Institute to provide a FREE showing of the beautiful and educational 1-hour feature film “Hidden Rivers” and worked out a deal to show it at Maryville College on Monday Nov. 4 at 7 pm at the Lawson Auditorium. Doors will open at 6 pm and the film will start at 7 pm. A number of groups will have booths in the foyer so people can mingle and ask questions. The film’s producer Jeremy Monroe of Freshwater Illustrated (https://www.freshwatersillustrated.org/) will be there as well to introduce the film and take questions from the audience. He has produced several short films about fish and other aquatic species of our area, which can be found on his website and Vimeo (https://vimeo.com/wemayfly). You can view the Hidden Rivers trailer at: https://www.freshwatersillustrated.org/hidden-rivers

Also, please check out the Freshwater Illustrated video highlighting Brook Trout restoration restoration in a portion of Anthony Creek in the Smokies: https://vimeo.com/297297998

Please pass this around to your fellow chapter members, friends and family. Should be a great night. Hope to see y’all there!

October Meeting

 

It’s eating ‘n’ meeting time fishing friends-
October’s meeting proves to be a good and educational time.  This month we have the privilege of hosting not one but two speakers from Montana. These fellas are fishing guides with some great stories to share. We look forward to seeing you there.

Our next meeting will be October 22 at Barley’s in Maryville. Social hour starts at 6pm and meeting at 7pm.  Because of the holidays, our November and December meetings will be on December 3. This meeting will be our Business meeting follow by a silent auction. You bring the stuff you want to get rid of and some of the money goes to the chapter. This was a lot of fun last year and a lot of stuff changed hands.

Happy fishing!!

“I was born and raised near Knoxville Tennessee. This allowed me to grow up with wonderful places to play right in my own back yard. Countless miles of mountain streams and large, cold tailwaters provided endless playgrounds. I never realized how much those years of playing in the water would influence my adult life.

    I’ve always loved the peaceful excitement of fly fishing and always found myself thinking about that next big trip to the mountains. When my leisure time came, I was fly fishing. I was always captivated by the guides I saw, rowing their anglers down river and finding those special places only accessible by drift boat. I knew that guiding others and showing them the places I treasure would be a very rewarding career.

    I’ve been in the business of guiding fly anglers to east Tennessee’s finest fly fishing destinations since 1999. I strive to please my clients and work very hard to make sure every day out on the water is a very special day. Being a professional fly fishing guide isn’t always easy, but it is always rewarding and I’m truly blessed in doing what I love.

Hope to see you there.
