November meeting speaker is the famous Tim Flagler!

If you have been a member for a while, you know Tim, as he has presented to us many times. If you haven’t seen Tim, his video is second to none, and he can shed new light on topics that you thought you might be well versed in.

He got me to approach Ken Lockwood Gorge in a new way!

Well Tim will be sharing on his recent trip to Patagonia and I know it is going to be one hell of a presentation.

So please help me in welcoming that travelling hippy, Tim, back to Hacklebarney on 11/8 at the Legion Hall in Whippany. 7:30pm in case you forgot!

This Month's Fly is the BWO!!!

OK folks, here you go. This month’s fly is one of the most useful in your box. It hatches all year long and everybody on the East coast needs to get familiar with them if you haven’t already.


This mayfly goes all year long, and therefore the fish are used to seeing them.


So get you thinking cap on. Tie 10 BWO flies of your choosing and bring them next week to the meeting!

Fly Tying Club for next Thursday's meeting- October Caddis

If you want to be a part of the next big thing, your time has come! We will have our inaugural meeting with the Fly Tyers club contributing.

Here is the deal. Bring 10 flies that you tied of the monthly pattern. 5 of those flies go to the chapter for a bucket raffle. The other 5 flies go into a separate raffle for only the tyers who contributed.

This month’s fly will be the October Caddis! Pretty fitting, no?

The real deal!

The real deal!

So choose your nymphs. Choose your dries. Tie 10 and get into the club!
