Your Board met October 1 and made several important decisions. First, Cabin Fever, originally scheduled for late February, 2021 has been cancelled. The hotel will move our reservation to February, 2022. Second, the board approved funding a 5-year scholarship to students studying Biology with a focus on Sustainability at Chatham University in memory of our former Conservation Chair and colleague, Tom Walsh. Thanks to Bob Bukk for coming up with this idea and doing the leg work to get it to happen. Full minutes are nearby.

Bryan Mathie and Jodie Minor have good news for us concerning next year’s Cabin Fever Expo.
Mark your calendars: Sunday, February 21, 2021, a change from our usual early March date.
Location: Doubletree Hotel with expanded space for vendors and displays. The flea market will be held in the large hallway outside the vendor’s room.
Primary speaker: KELLY GALLOUP from the Slide Inn on the Madison River in Cameron, MT. If you’ve ever fished large lures for large trout, you’ll know that Kelly has invented some of the most productive (and cleverly named) lures in the business. Click here for a bio. His presentations are not to be missed.
- Limited attendance evening with Kelly who will tell stories and demo fly tying.
- Two presentations on Sunday at the Expo: topics to be determined.
- Limited attendance session to demonstrate the secrets of tying large streamers such as the Zoo Cougar.
- Possibly a session with youth fly fishers.
