Fly Fishers talk to focus on healthy streams, rivers

By From page A5 | April 23, 2014

Dan Brosier, president of the Sac-Sierra chapter of Trout Unlimited, and secretary Kevin Mather are the guest speakers Tuesday, April 29, for the Fly Fishers of Davis.

The duo will outline Trout Unlimited’s conservation, advocacy and education work within California and in the local area. TU is the nation’s largest cold-water fisheries conservation group with more than 150,000 members nationwide. Brosier and Mather, both dedicated steelhead junkies, are board members of Sac-Sierra TU, the local grassroots chapter.

Sac-Sierra TU was recently awarded an “Embrace a Stream” grant for erosion control work on Secret Ravine, a tributary of Dry Creek in Sacramento that supports both salmon and steelhead. They will be discussing the project and opportunities for people to become involved.

The Fly Fishers of Davis normally meet to swap fish stories at 7:30 p.m. on the last Tuesday of the month in the multipurpose room at Harper Junior High School, 4000 E. Covell Blvd. The meetings are free and open to newcomers and guests. Come about 7 p.m. to check out the various outings, ask about the club or try your luck at the monthly raffle.

If you’re interested in learning to fly-fish, come to the meeting and ask anyone about the introductory and intermediate fly-fishing courses. The club is also working on a program for young fly fishers (under 16).
