Frost Gully Brook Walk – October 27th, 9:00 – 12:00 Noon
Meet-up location to be announced.
Wear your hiking boots and bring your hiking sticks for a morning on Frost Gully Brook. Frost Gully holds special interest to our chapter for its capacity of holding salters in its lower reaches. We’re working with Maine TU to remove four dams along its path to better provide migration and spawning opportunities for the salters. This visit will be to familiarize ourselves with the Burr Pond Dam and its immediate surroundings in Freeport . Consider this a scouting mission for a work day to be scheduled in the spring of 2020.
Entomology and Fly Tying Nights – December – April 6:00 – 8:00PM
Upstairs at Joshua’s Restaurant, 123 Maine Street, Brunswick
Ever wonder why you tie that pattern that way? Join us for these informative evenings led by our own Eric and Selene Frohmberg. Eric will present a selected insect each month, presenting its lifecycle, and then Selene will lead the tying of that fly. Tyers will be provided with the recipe’s ingredients in plenty of time to stock up on the materials. The upstairs room at Joshua’s has plenty of outlets and good stout tables for your vises, but you might want to bring an extension cord for your light.
If you just want to hang out and tie, that’s cool, too. Looking forward to seeing you there!
March Brown Madness – March 7th, 2020 – 9:00 – 12:00 Noon
Coastal Enterprises Institute, 30 Federal Street, Brunswick
Our annual fund-raiser features great speakers, tyers, authors, and a silent auction of some very note-worthy and rare items. This year, we will be teaming with Fly Fishing Maine who will have an afternoon event nearby. Make a day of it and get yourself ready for the spring season!
