October Meeting

President’s Corner

Ernie Frey  



What a great fall camping trip! The fish were biting. The fall colors
were beginning to show. Saturday’s dinner was phenomenal. The
comradery was great. It rained on Sunday morning very early but it
wasn’t raining when we packed up. Several members of the Smoky
Mountain Chapter came camping this year. There will be at least two
more trips scheduled for next year so watch for the dates and plan to
come camping.
The next LRCTU meeting will be October 26 at Calhouns. Social
hour is from 6 to 7 pm. Business meeting starts at 7pm.
Because of the end of year holidays, our last meeting of the year will
be on December 7 which is out of sync but is necessary. In addition
to a guest speaker, we will also hold a silent or regular auction of any
items you might wish to donate to the club general fund for fund
raising. It doesn’t need to be fishing related, could be something you
just want to pass on. Start thinking about what you might want to

The Fall camping trip is set for Cataloochee valley at the group camp site 1 from Oct 6 at 1:00pm till Oct 8 at 12:00am. It is always fun with great fishing and tall stories around the campfire. Remember the fire wood restriction in the park so bring 3 or 4 bundles of approved wood. Start planning to camp with us! q

September Meeting

President’s Thoughts

Ernie Frey  



As I am writing t the camp grounds and maybe some of the roads. We are off to an exciting Fall. This could be a good time to get some of those chores done that have been hanging around all summer and preparing for some great fall fishing.

Charlie C. says we have had a good year in volunteer projects so far this year. I want to add my thanks to his to our members who are willing to help with the Parks projects. A new brook trout stream in the park may soon be available.

Speaking of volunteering, we have another opportunity. The Park offers a fly fishing 101 to park volunteers and we have supported this effort by providing instructors to help with the class. The class will take place on Sept.23 at Sugarland park headquarters at 9:00. We need seven more people to help with this class. If it is like last year’s class, it will be a very enjoyable day. In the morning we will show the class how to cast and in the afternoon we will take them down to the West Prong of the Pigeon for some on the water experience. You don’t have to be a Master caster to help with this class. You just need to be willing to share some knowledge of your sport. Please consider volunteering let me know if you want to help.

September’s meeting will be at Calhoun’s in Maryville on September 28. Social hour starts at 6:00, business meeting starts at 7:00. Walter Babb will be our guest speaker

It’s Back! Overton’s Wonder Wax

If you’ve been around Fly Fishing and especially Fly Tying since the early 90,s them most likely you have used  Overton’s Wonder Wax.  If you have never used it make sure give it a try.  It is what all the Fly Tying Wax made in the last 25 years has been compared against. I remember going  to a store in North Carolina after I found out they quit making it and buying the last four they had.  It’s now back.  To purchase some go to their Face Book page or just lookup Overton’s Wonder Wax online. I for one am glad to see it is back.
