2014 Southeast Michigan Holiday Social

On Tuesday, December 9th, 2014 the Clinton Valley chapter will host the Second Annual Southeast Michigan Holiday Social.  This is a special event as members from the four local TU chapters (Clinton Valley, Vanguard, Challenge and Paul H. Young) and the members of the Michigan Fly Fishing Club will be able to share some of their recent fishing stories and plans for future trips to the water.

This year’s Holiday Social is focused around Michigan’s native Coaster brook trout and all funds earned will be donated towards the restoration of this beautiful native Michigan species.  Several artists will have their work up for auction including Becca Schlaff, David Ruimveld, Jim Page, Tight Lines Jewelry and many more.

Due to the popularity of this event tickets have been sold out.  Please look forward to next year’s Holiday Social and get your tickets early!

November Elections Meeting

The Clinton Valley Chapter’s November membership meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, November 11th at Camp Ticonderoga from 7:00PM to 9:30PM. During this meeting the chapter will be completing the important task of either re-electing officers and board members or electing new chapter leaders.  Your voice is important for the leadership of the chapter to hear as we move forward into the new year.

Our feature presentation for the evening with be from Katie Ferner, the new Orvis Fly Fishing Manager.  Many of you know of the strong partnership we had with the former Orvis Fly Fishing Manager, Rich Merlino.  This is your opportunity to learn who Katie is and how well-versed she is in the world of fly fishing.  From her time as a shop clerk at the PM lodge, her summer guiding in Alaska or the time she has spent fishing the Florida Keys, Katie is as experienced as they come and a great addition to our local fly fishing community.

So join us at Camp Ticonderoga next Tuesday for a great meeting, the great atmosphere and some great friends.  We’ll see you there!
