                     "A Matter of Priorities, Perception & Perspective"

                                                                     ~ October 2016  ~ 


I always hear folks tell me “well, what could I do?” or “it doesn’t matter it will be meaningless” or “not my problem".  These types of statements drive me nuts to hear. The list is endless for not doing something or doing nothing. The power of one can be easily under estimated. Each of us has the ability, and capability to do some good and make a difference. We need to just act and yes, it will make a difference. I had a little experiment the other morning; I said hello to everyone who passed me, to my surprise everyone responded in a positive manner. Simple acts do have a big impact; one becomes two, then ten until it grows into hundreds. 


We will be raffling off a bamboo fly rod courtesy of Doug Ernst, limited to fifty tickets. Sale of tickets starts at the October meeting and will continue till fifty are sold. This is limited to members only. We will also be raffling off an L. L. Bean fly rod to benefit our Youth Education Program, Trout in the Classroom (TIC). The tickets will be a special raffle at the meeting and will carryover to November if insufficient tickets are sold. Details will be announced at the meeting.


This month's meeting we will have Chart Guthrie talking about the proposed regulation regarding the Carmans River. Here is a chance to voice your opinion. October is the start of fly tying at the Pat-Med Library 9:30 AM– 12:00 on  Main Street Patchogue. These sessions are always fun, informative and a great chance to catch up with friends.


Just a reminder that due to a holiday the October meeting will be held Monday October 17 at the Bayport Town Recreation Center at 7:30 pm. See you at the meeting. 


Tight lines!!

        Tom Walsh,  President
