Fly tying classes will begin on February 6th from 7:00 to 8:30 , at the trust and be held every Tuesday in February. There will be a group for beginners as well as one for more advanced tyers. Vises ,tools and materials will be provided, or bring your own if you choose.
Again, enjoy the holidays.
We are a grass roots group of dedicated fishermen in the Philadelphia region (Southeastern Montgomery County, Northeast Philadelphia and neighboring parts of lower Bucks County), whose purposes are :
1. To conserve, protect and restore our local cold water streams and fisheries and their watersheds.
2. To study, understand and enhance our wild trout resources.
3. To pass on our love and knowledge for the sport to the next generaton of anglers in our area. This is done by person-to-person interactions, by group participation at meetings and activities and with partnership with other local organizations during community fishing derbies and stream cleanup days.
About our Chapter
The Southeastern Montgomery County of Trout Unlimited, Chapter # 468, located in the Huntingdon Valley area of Southeastern Pennsylvania is committed to preserving wild and native trout streams, restoring, repairing and enhancing trout streams and rivers, and the habitats that support these waters. The goal is to ensure their survival for future generations of fishermen and others who care about and realize the importance of healthy watersheds to the entire ecosystem.
Our monthly meetings are held regularly at the Pennypack Ecological Restoration Trust Visitor's Center at 2955 Edge Hill Road in Huntingdon Valley, PA, at 7:00 PM every second Tuesday of each month. At Trout Unlimited meetings we discuss conservation issues, plan stream cleanup days, stream restoration projects and work days on our home waters, such as, the Pennypack Creek and other streams in this watershed. We also plan and organize fundraisers and sponsor programs such as "Fish with a Friend", for members in search of fishing partners, educational programs such as flyfishing clinics and participate in local youth fishing derbies. Other Chapter activities include fly tying and rod building seminars, field stream studies, guest speakers and educational slides and videosi. Our Chapter also takes annual trips to Penns Creek and other renowned trout fisheries thoughout the State.
