This program will direct the angler to fishing in the major drainages of the Poconos, including major streams and small headwater wild trout waters.

Rahway River Trout Unlimited will be hosting the 7th Annual Fly-Tying Madness event at The Pequest Trout Hatchery and Natural Resource Education Center. Sponsored by the New Jersey State Council of TU, the event will welcome all ten chapters of Trout Unlimited in the state of New Jersey and any other interested parties to tie and donate flies to worthy organizations. Tiers will be contributing to:
Casting for Recovery, which helps women whose lives, have been profoundly affected by breast cancer.
Project Healing Waters, which is dedicated to the physical and emotional rehabilitation of disabled active military personnel and disabled veterans through fly-fishing.
And, finally, the Trout Unlimited Veteran Service program which also assists veterans in rehabilitation of physical and emotional injuries through the unique therapeutic value of fly-fishing and conservation work.
All three are worthwhile organizations, which serve cancer survivors, veterans and the greater community. This event has donated over 12,000 flies since its inception in 2012.
