    The agenda has been finalized, and the Gig Harbor Chapter of Trout Unlimited meeting is coming very soon!
    We are very excited to have Bob Triggs for a 1 hour presentation on Sea-Run Cutthroat Trout;
    Seasons, Beach Habitats,Saltwater Forage, Flies, and techniques.
    Did you know that an 18" cutthroat is approximately 12 years old! :eek:
    Bob will enlighten us on how fragile our cutthroat resource remains, as well as share his knowledge of safe catch& release tactics for this world class wild trout.
    We will have drawings for;
    * Bob Triggs hand tied flies for SRC.
    * Signed copies of Les Johnson's new book Fly-Fishing for Coastal Cutthroat.
    * Gift certificates from Blackwater fish reproductions.
    We will have a presentation on the 2005 Northwest Youth Conservation and Fly-fishing Academy.
    replace your child's X-BOX with a tackle box, and develop a new relationship with your child, and enjoy time with them on the stream, while mentoring youth natural resource stewardship .
    We will also have a representative from the Great Peninsula Conservancy to introduce us to their mission of protecting our local shorelines, streams, forests, and open spaces.
    Sound familiar? :rolleyes:
    Did you know there is a new 98 acre wildlife refuge lacated near Rosedale? :eek:
    As I am sure you are aware of the massive growth & development scheduled for this area. You may want to consider getting actively involved in protecting our local fragile watersheds from development run-off, and helping to support those who are working to protect our bountiful SRC and Salmon streams we all enjoy so much.
    If you live in the Gig harbor / Key Peninsula area and would like to participate in Trout Unlimited events. contact me for membership info.
    Thanks!
