The lowly mop fly has hit the big time with an article in the Wall Street Journal. (Click Here for the article). The article is cited by Mid Current which features an ad for a large assortment of mop flies (Click Here for the ad.). These flies are so irresistible to trout that they have been banned from competition. (Ed note: collection that is for sale does not include any green mop flies. Lefty Kregh wouldn’t approve. He always said: “If it ain’t chartreuse, it ain’t no use”).
Casting for Recovery supports women surviving breast cancer. CFR has an annual online auction each November, and the 2020 event went live November 11 and closes November 22. This year’s auction has over 200 items related to fishing. Support a good cause by bidding on an item for yourself or someone you love. Click Here to get to the auction. This link takes you directly to the auction which is being run by Bidding for a Good Cause rather than CFR. Don’t worry, it’s legitimate.
The November, 2020 Board meeting was held by Zoom conference on November 5th. Bob Bukk reported that the paperwork associated with our funding of a student grant at Chatham University was in order. Ed Barger is preparing to pay the first installment of the grant in December. Ron Milavec announced that we will not have a live booth at the Monroeville Sportsman’s Show for first time in many years; however, it may be possible to have an un-manned booth advertising Trout Unlimited. Cabin Fever 2021 is cancelled due to Covid. The hotel deposit has migrated to late February, 2022. Bar Flies is on hold also. The Board has approved purchase of ZOOM Pro which will improve our chapter meetings as well as a new laptop computer to facilitate presentations during in-person Chapter meetings, whenever they return. No Joe Cline fly sale this year, but tie up some anyway and save them for next year. There are three openings for new Board members this coming year, so contact Dale Fogg if you are interested in serving.
