Here is our upcoming schedule for November, December and January. A reminder we don't have a meeting in December, but will have a gathering at Chows on December 6th.
The November presenter will be Captain Dean Lamont. His website: http://www.crystalcoastadventures.com/
He will talk about his typical fishing year, starting at the Roanoke for Shad and ending for Albies and Trout.
Captain Dean Lamont is a USCG master captain of 13 years, an insured guide, a member and former president of the Cape Lookout Flyfishers, former member of the N.C. Marine Fisheries Central Advisory Board, a member of the Triangle Flyfishers (TU), and a member of the Coastal Conservation Association.
Our Christmas Party will be at Chow on Creedmoor Rd. (8311 Creedmoor Road). The same place we partied last year. Feel free to bring your wife or date. Food will be provided. There will be a cash bar at the Chow Bar.
We will have a Secret Santa gift exchange. Please bring a gift valued less than $10. My philosophy on the gift exchange is to bring a gift you would like to have.
We may auction off a few items. In the Spirit of Christmas all funds raised will go toward our children’s programs, The Kids Fee for the Clear Water Lake Fish Out, River Course Conservation & Fly Fishing Camp and Trout-in-classroom. We are asking for a minimum $5 donation per person.
There will also be a Trader Joe’s Christmas Basket door prize.
This event will let us come together to share the Christmas Spirit and reminisce about good times. It should be lots of fun for everyone.
Our January presenter will be Captain Gary Dubiel. Here a link to his website: https://www.specfever.com/home.html
Over 15 years guiding experience and an expert with both fly and light tackle fishing.
Capt. Gary's passion for fishing brought him to North Carolina in the late 1980's. Starting "Spec Fever" because of his love of speckled seatrout fishing. Moving from the Outer Banks to the Neuse River, Gary adding redfish, stripers, false albacore and so many other species to the Spec Fever hit list.
Always looking to improve his techniques, Gary pioneered the popping cork craze for NC giant red drum, turning what was a night time bait fishery into a day time artificial lure fishery. Progressing that one step further, Gary invented the Pop-N-Fly rig and revolutionized fly fishing for these giant reds.
Capt. Gary has written and lectured on both light tackle and fly fishing and he has appeared on a number of angling shows on ESPN 2, WFN, UNC-TV, NBC Sports, the Sportsman Channel and Discovery Channel (Europe). He is a frequent speaker at local and national fishing shows including the Saltwater Sportsman's National Seminar Series, the Fly Fishing Show and the Virginia Fly Fishing Festival. He has also been featured in many major sports fishing magazines and in several books.
