Letter from the President, April 1999

My thanks goes out to Capt. Ken Turco for that great show he put on for the benefit of Salty members. The next time you are getting ready to fish the Shinnecock and Montauk area on a charter, please remember to give Ken a call. You won’t be sorry you did. Remember we get supported by those we support.

I’m pleased to announce that Ed Mitchell, Author of the best selling book, Flyrodding the Coast, will be our guest at the April 5th meeting. I’ve seen Ed’s show in the past and you are in for a real treat. Bring a friend.

Just a reminder, don’t forget that on April 8th The Fishing Line with Rich Johnson will present the 1st Annual Fly Fishing Seminar at the Knights of Columbus Catering Hall in Seaford Long Island, Featuring Lou Tabory and Steve Sloan. Rich will also be featured at the Campsite on April 24th. Stop by between 10am and 2pm for coffee, donuts, and a chance to smmooozzz with Long Island’s top t.v. fishing personality.

Remember April 1st is the official start of the fishing season, so now is the time to get your gear in shape, flies tied or bought and make it a point not to miss the upcoming events that your club will be presenting for your benefit. I mean that’s why you joined, right? Information on the conclave is in this issue. Remember that when the time comes to reserve a spot at the conclave, do it quickly, as space will fill up before you know it. This will be an exciting year for us, lot’s of things to do, and I hope lot’s of people to do it with.
