The March 2019 meeting of the Catskill Fly Tyers Guild will be held on Saturday, March 16, at 1:00 P.M. in the Wulff Gallery at the Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum, 1031 Old Route 17, Livingston Manor, NY.
Bring flies to the March meeting to donate to Project Healing Waters. The Catskill Fly Tyers Guild continues to support Project Healing Waters and its mission of physical and emotional rehabilitation for disabled active military service personnel and disabled veterans through fly fishing and associated activities, including education and outings.
At the meeting, Don Baylor will present the case for the Poconos as at least as important as the Catskills in the history of American trout fishing and the development of American fly-fishing techniques. He will discuss the notable Pennsylvania anglers, destinations, and literature important to the development of American trout fishing traditions in the 1800s and first half of the 1900s.
Don Baylor is a partner in Aquatic Resource Consulting (ARC), which provides baseline surveys of aquatic macro invertebrates, fishes, and water chemistry and assesses environmental impacts on aquatic ecosystems, consults on habitat development, and advises regarding fisheries management for fishing clubs, government agencies, counties, municipalities, and engineering
