Ithaca Fishing Day - 17th Annual
This Saturday - March 14

Ithaca Fishing Day is an event the Chapter (Leon Chandler, #239) hosts on an annual basis. This year, it is being held on Saturday, March 14th from 9 AM to 3 PM at Boynton Middle School in Ithaca, NY. While the event is a major fundraiser for the chapter, it also uses it as an opportunity to inform & educate the community about Trout Unlimited, who we are, what we do, and why we do it.

In addition, speakers will present on relevant information about fishing and/or conservation-related topics, fly-tying demonstrations (hosted this year by Twin-Tiers Five Rivers Chapter of FFF), a casting clinic offered by Joe Cambridge and Carol Farkas, and numerous vendors (Badger Creek Fly Tying, Mad River Fly Tying, etc.). This is a major event for the Leon Chandler Chapter, and with the support they received this year, the only thing we need to make it a huge success is people and friends.It is time we all come to the aid of our fraternal chapters in NY TU when possible.
