Last Meeting – In Person!

November 14, 2022

We wanted to get out a correction to all those interested in attending our last meeting of this year. We will not have a Zoom connection for tomorrow’s meeting. We do not have the equipment necessary to conduct a Zoom meeting with a live speaker.

Regardless, we do hope you can come to the meeting to hear Chester and see everyone. Chester Allen, a lifelong journalist and longtime resident of South Sound wrote a popular outdoors and fishing column for The Olympian from 2004 to 2010. He is the author of two fly fishing books: “Fly Fishing for Sea-Run Cutthroat” and “Yellowstone Runners.”
“Fly Fishing for Sea-Run Cutthroat” focuses on learning how to find and catch sea-run cutthroat in Puget Sound. “Yellowstone Runners” is about the wonderful run of big brown and rainbow trout that run into Yellowstone National Park’s Madison River each fall.
He has lived in Oregon since he left The Olympian in 2010. Chester currently lives in Sisters, Oregon, where he fishes the Metolius River at least four days a week – and spends a great deal of time on his home water, the Lower Deschutes River. Chester also travels and fishes throughout the West, and he spends several weeks each year in Yellowstone National Park. Chester believes that soft-hackle flies are underrated!
Chester will be at the meeting at the Griffin Fire Station. He will be demonstrating fly tying and will autograph any purchases of his books.

The meeting is at the Griffin Fire Department Headquarters, 3707 Steamboat Loop NW, Olympia, WA 98502. Meeting officially starts at 7 PM, but Chester will be there early to sign books and demonstrate some fly tying, so come early!

There is parking in the back of the building and you can park in the Grange building parking lot on the west side of the Griffin fire station.

We resume regular club meetings in January 2023.
