Foothills October Monthly Meeting
Our guest speaker for the October Foothills Trout Unlimited meeting
will be Ben Smith. Ben has been guiding in northeast Georgia for a few years and now works with Unicoi Outfitters. One of Ben's specialties is Euro Nymphing so this is your opportunity to hone your own skills in this technique. This meeting will take place on the water at Nacoochee Bend on October 13th beginning at 5:30 PM. It is recommended you park in the gravel parking lot in front of Habersham Winery, across the highway from Nora Mill. There was an expressed interest in having more "How To" programs for our chapter members. We intend for this to be the first of many.

With the warmer temperatures we’ve had this week it feels like spring out there. I hope everyone is doing well and getting out and enjoying themselves. Thankfully, Covid seems to be abating and restrictions are being curtailed. We will resume our monthly meetings again beginning the 2nd Thursday in March in the community room at the United Community Bank in Clarkesville, Ga. on Louise St. It is my understanding that a speaker has been booked so we will return to our regular schedule, 6 – 6:30 social time, 6:30 – 7 business, 7-8 presentation. I hope everyone will attend.
