September Membership Meeting To Feature Special Guest Ross Purnell

“Early explorers described the Patagonians as ‘giants’ because they were larger than the diminutive European sailors. The secluded valleys of Patagonia are now home to giants of another type: giant wild brook trout and brown trout that were brought to the region more than a century ago. They have adapted, they have expanded their range, and in this unfettered wilderness they grow much larger than their cousins in the Northern Hemisphere.”

Join us at our September 26th General Membership Meeting where we will have a presentation by Ross Purnell, publisher and editor of Fly Fisherman magazine. He has traveled the world with his fly rods and is also an avid rock and ice climber. If he’s not on top of a mountain, he’s down in the valley with a fly rod in his hand. Purnell’s presentation will highlight fly fishing in Chile and Argentina, in the vast southernmost stretch of Patagonia.

This program starts at 7:00 p.m., with socializing beginning at 6:30 p.m. The Community Club’s bar and grill will be open before and during the meeting.

Note: The main entrance to Fort Indiantown Gap, coming from the Route 934 exit off I-81, is now grated. To avoid this, head north/turn left at the Snitz Creek Brewery/Funk’s Restaurant.
