Chapter Message from Sean Finney President
March 21st was our annual swap meet and we had a fairly nice turnout. It appeared that there was some good buying and selling taking place. I know we found 1 or 2 good deals we had to have. After bringing back the swap meet last year after almost a 10 year drought if seems to be a hit.
Our next meeting will be on Weds April 18th and our guest speaker will be John Beath from Squid Pro Tackle. He’ll be talking about fishing for Halibut and covering some more on our Canadian fishery. Along with that John will have some of his halibut tackle and terminal gear for sale. John has helped develop a couple nice fishing rods for bottom fish and salmon as well. He should have some available at the meeting.
On August 4th 2018 our chapter will be hosting their annual Salmon Derby on the South Sound. Derby headquarters will again be at Point Defiance in Tacoma. Our derby is a part of the Northwest Salmon Derby Series so be sure to put it on the list for summer. We have some great payouts along with a fantastic selection of prizes. In the next few months be sure to keep an eye out for the derby information to be at your local tackle shop.
Upcoming schedule of events:
April 18th 2018 Fishing for Halibut with John Beath
May 16th Speaker TBD
June 20th Salmon Fishing
