Tom Finkbiner of Slate Run has call the Chapter to request assistance for the family day he has scheduled for this Saturday, July 19 the Old Campgroud (Tombs Flats) one mile below Slate Run. He has 32 people registered for fly-fishing lessons, and only 3 instructors as of today.
He could use some help starting between 8 and 9 A.M. to set up canopies, tables, etc. Instruction will be from 11 A.M. and 5 P.M. Lunch will be provided. Obviously, 3 instructors for 32 students is not enough.
This is a great opportunity for the Chapter to again make ourselves known and to help teach others this great sport. This is not only a fly fishing class but will cover spin fishing as well. Please consider helping at this event and even if you can only give an hour or two, that will be a tremendous help.
If you can help, please call Tom Finkbiner at 570-753-8551 or our Chapter President Dave Craig at home 570-326-1002 or cell 570-971-4744
