Welcome back after our summer break! Our regular monthly meeting for September will be held at 7:30pm on Tuesday, September 17, 2019, at our usual Fireman's Field meeting location in Oakhurst, NJ. Our special guest speaker will be Tim Flagler who has been a speaker at JSTU meetings several times in the past. His presentations are always interesting and informative - info about Tim's talk and his bio follows. Don't miss this one! As usual, fly tying will precede the meeting at 6:30pm. Visitors always welcome.

Tim Flagler's Presentation on the Kootenai and Yaak Rvers:

The Kootenai and Yaak rivers of northwestern Montana don’t get the recognition that others in the state like the Madison and the Missouri do. This is actually a good thing. Imagine five days of fishing from a drift boat without seeing another one on the river or wading miles and miles of a crystal clear alpine stream and never seeing a soul. That’s what fishing is like on the Kootenai River and the Yaak drainage with the Linehan Outfitting Company. Presentation is entirely video-based.

Tim Flagler's Bio:

Tim Flagler is the owner of Tightline Productions, L.L.C., a video production company located in Califon, NJ. Although he produces video programs over a wide range of topics, his specialty is fly fishing. Almost every week he produces a new fly tying or “how to” video which appears not only on his YouTube and Vimeo channels but on Midcurrent and the Orvis fly fishing blog as well. They’re also featured on Trout Unlimited’s national website and the Orvis Learning Center. Many of the tying videos take the viewer well beyond just the tying of the fly and show what it looks like underwater, what natural it represents and how it can be fished.

In addition, Tim’s a fixture at the Fly Fishing Shows, giving presentations, teaching classes and often as a Featured Tier. He enjoys guiding year round for Shannon’s Fly & Tackle in Califon, NJ. and hosts annual trips to Patagonia in the spring.
