President’s Corner

President’s Corner

I’m writing this while listening to the rainfall on the roof. As of this morning, we have had over 50 inches of rain this year. From a fishing and conservation standpoint this is a good thing. The groundwater reserves are being rebuilt after those years of drought. My only concern is that we don’t huge amounts of rain at one time that may disrupt the redds of breeding fish. I personally am using the rain days to clean and check over my fishing gear.

One of the first articles I wrote when I became president of the chapter talked about finishing a bamboo blank that I had purchased at Troutfest. Well, it is finished and so is my term as president. The board will nominate, for member’s approval, a slate of candidates for the board and officers of the chapter for 2019. If any member wishes to be an officer or on the board, nominations will be taken from the floor at the December 4 meeting.

The Tuesday, December 4 meeting will be the last meeting of the year. We make this deviation because of the holiday schedule. This meeting will the silent auction to benefit the chapter so if you have something you wish to donate please bring it to the December 4 meeting.

Our meeting site has been confirmed for next year. Barley’s has been a great meeting venue and working with Jim Williams and his staff has been a great pleasure.

Next meeting will be December 4 at Barley’s Maryville, social hour starts at 6 and business meeting at 7. The silent auction will go on from 6 till 8.
