General Meeting - Tuesday, September 8, 2009

There are no General Meetings during the months of July and August

Our September meeting will feature Rod Rohrbach. Rod is the owner of the Little Lehigh Fly Shop in Allentown, PA, and will be making a presentation called "Fishing the Cushion".

Trout do most of their feeding on the bottom (the cushion); prudent anglers obtain the knowledge necessary to penetrate the diverse currents below the surface to reach the bottom.

Rod will present an understandable explanation of the streams food organisms, and he will discuss how their life cycles affect the angler's choice of patterns and tackle for bottom fishing.

He will also cover opportunistic and selective feeding and how these phenomenon's apply to the bottom fisherman and fly selection.

We received this e-mail and photos of Dave Hart from New Zealand guide Greg Dougherty, who is the guide on the trip Dave writes about in his May 2008 Mainstream article:

Hi New Jersey TU,

I was pleasantly surprised to read an article from Dave Hart about in your publication. I am the fortunate guide to have taken Dave for 4 days fishing around the Wanak area of the South Island of NZ.

Dave caught some nice fish over the 4 days and made me think that hopefully I can do the same when ( if !!) I get to his age.
