Home Fishing Trips & Outings...


     Each year the Art Flick TU Chapter organizes destination fishing trips so chapter members can sample together the diverse waters beyond the home waters of the Carmans River, and share in a camaraderie beyond the bonds of Cold Water Fisheries Conservation & Preservation.  Past trips have taken groups to many of the rivers & streams of the  Southern Catskill Mountain region, and as far North as the upper Adirondack Mountain region.

     The Chapter welcomes ideas for future trips of interest.  If you have an idea for a group trip for the upcoming year, please contact a member of your Chapter Leadership team about it.  So, check back for news of new adventures... 


 2019  WEST BRANCH ANGLER & RESORT- Hancock, New York



What more can we say...the West Branch Angler & Resort fishing trip has become an annual event and favorite amongst Chapter members.  The trip draws nearly two dozen participants each year to the hallowed waters of the Southern Catskill Mountains.  The Delaware River system is an exceptional fishery with plenty of wild fish to challenge and satisfy all angling skill levels & styles.  The time of year selected for the trip is at System's peak with plenty of masked hatches to keep anglers busy searching for that magic fly pattern of the day.  Early June is when some of the largest mayflies, i.e. Green Drakes, Brown Drakes, etc., of the season make their appearance on the area rivers.  To experience a legendary spinner fall of the "Coffin Fly", which draws out some of a season's largest Trout, is a fly fisher's dream!

The trip dates are the weekend of Friday, June 7th. through Sunday, June 9th  As in past trips, plans again call for use of several of the three anglers/cabin units with grand views of the West Branch Delaware River.  Cabins are equipped with full kitchen, A/C, Satellite T.V. & Wifi and nearby BBQ grill.  Trip cost per AFTU member is $200 which includes two nights lodging with full breakfast each morning.  Space is limited, so reserve your space early.  Note, Due to the high demand and competition for rental cabins at the West Branch Angler & Resort during the peak season, to insure our space we need to make our reservations before the WBA's 2019 Fly Fishing Show season, therefore our reservation schedule for the 2019 trip follows:  Confirmation of your reservation and 50% deposit ($100) on or before the January 2019 Monthly Chapter Meeting and balance of trip payment ($100) is due on or before the May 2019 Chapter Meeting.     For questions or trip reservations contact Trip Coordinator Doug Ernst.  Email: dougsbugs2[at]  /  Phone: (631)678-7301 or speak with him during one of the monthly chapter meetings.
