Join us Monday, October 9 for this month’s chapter meeting.
In Eric’s words:
I have been a teacher for 26 years, and I currently teach U.S. History at the Fox Chapel Area School District. I dabbled with fishing as a kid, but when I was in 9th grade, I won my first Orvis fly rod outfit at the annual banquet of the Ken Sink Chapter of Trout Unlimited. I still treasure it, and I will forever be grateful to TU for that rod and reel. I learned a lot about fly fishing and trout with that rod in my hand, but learned even more thanks to Nick Cobler’s dad, Dwight. He took us on trips to camp, he always made sure we had a box of flies, and he helped to foster a love of fly fishing on the banks of the Sinnemahoning creek. In the years that followed, more serious fly fishing, fly tying and rod building followed. I really enjoy being outdoors, and when I am not fishing and tying, I love time with my wife, Carrie and two sons, Gunnar and Grant. I also serve as the treasurer of the Allison Park Sportsman Club, and really enjoy bird hunting with my English Setter Winston.
Eric will discuss how to get there and where to fish, as well as the great opportunities that North and Northwest Arkansas have to offer to anglers and outdoor enthusiasts.
See you there!
