President’s Message – February 2019

I spent this rainy 1st of February at my bench with a quiet day of tying Chironomid Midges.  It was a good day for me to reflect on my time as club president.  I have many fond memories of these past 3 years and most all of them involve many of you.  I have taken time to read back in the past issues of the Creel the stories and photos of the beginning years in the 1960’s. What a time it was.  The ‘mad men era’ looked like a time of friends, laughter, cocktails and fly fishing.  Our club certainly has a great history and one we can all be proud of.  I am looking forward to seeing where our next president will guide us.  I am honored and appreciative that I was elected to serve.  I feel I have gained more than I have given.  Unexpectedly, my love of fly fishing has lead me down a path of many new friendships that I am grateful for.  I look forward to spending more time on the water with many of you for years to come.

My best to you,



Teri departs
