~  MARCH 2019  ~

      
 
 

March has come in like a lion and we are all hoping it leaves like a lamb.

Saturday, March 2nd I attended the Ward Melville High School Fishing Show, what a great event for a high school fishing club.  At the show, George Costa’s table presentation was great with the help from Mike Barger, Mich Fine and Joe D'Ambrosi.  They did a great job interacting with the visitors hoping for some new members.  

As we get ready for spring, we have several projects on the horizon.

·       March 16, is the “Long Island Fly Fishing Expo”,

·       March 23, is the “Carmans River Clean-up”. This year we are incorporating a “River Habitat Improvement Project”.  Tony Ertola obtained the Project funds from the New York City based "Theodore Gordon FlyFishers" angling organization who graciously donated the funds to purchase the needed materials for the project.  It will be all hands on deck! >>>LEARN MORE<<<

·       April 20, Mike Barger has put together an “Instructional Outing with the Girl Scouts of America at Connetquot River State Park”, it will be a great time for all. 

 

Hope to see you at these AFTU events.

 

Tight Lines, 

Paul Puma, President.

IN THE SPOT LIGHT... "Youth Education"

SEEKING A NEXT GENERATION OF ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDS…

AFTU BOY SCOUTS/GIRL SCOUTS COORDINATOR Michael Barger has thus far had a busy fall working with both of these organizations to coordinate or facilitate programs which seed or support a potential new generation of Environmental Stewards for the waters & fisheries that are so dear to us.  Mike was delighted to be approached earlier this summer by a young man by the name of Aiden Donnelly who was already heavily engaged in Eagle Scout Projects focused on protecting the natural environment, and in need of outside support to sustain his merit work.  Aiden's most recent environmental work was in the Recycling of Monofilament Fishing Line.
