June Meeting

This month Meeting is on Tuesday, the 25th. The social hour start at 6pm for social hour and 7pm for the meeting. Our guest speaker will be David Perry from   Southeastern Fly

David Perry has been guiding and calling the waters of Middle Tennessee home for almost two decades.

David began fly fishing in the Great Lakes State of Michigan while in grade school. After moving to Knoxville, Tenn. as an adult, a friend reintroduced David to fly fishing. They fished the small streams of Smoky Mountains, East Tennessee tailwaters and into North Carolina multiple times a week and refreshed David’s skills as an angler.

Upon moving to Murfreesboro and buying a drift boat, David’s friends encouraged him to start guiding anglers because of his desire to help others catch fish on the fly.

David specializes in terrestrials, nymphs, streamer techniques and works very hard to make every client a better angler.

His dedication to new anglers and seasoned veterans shows each day on the river.

Chapter meeting will be on Tuesday June 25rd at Barley’s in downtown
Maryville. Social hour starts at 6:00 and the business meeting will start at
7:00. We meet in the upstairs banquet room.
