On Wednesday, March 6, 2013 the American Museum of Fly Fishing is hosting a benefit dinner at the Anglers’ Club of New York in appreciation of Lefty Kreh for his iconic and innovative contributions to the world of saltwater fly fishing and the angling industry as a whole. Lefty is a recognized fixture in both the Freshwater and Saltwater communities and is the originator of the popular Deceiver fly pattern. For more information, visit the AMFF web page.

TGF Luncheon, 12:00 pm, Wednesday February 13th at City Crab
Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula – from Campeche on the Gulf to Punta Allen and Xcalak on the Caribbean – is home to prolific numbers of juvenile tarpon waiting to take a well placed streamer fly.
Nationally known angling writer Phil Shook, who has just released his latest guidebook Fly Fisher’s Guide to Mexico, will talk to us about the tarpon action on the big bays, national parks and jungle lagoons, while sampling some Yucatecan cuisine and visiting some Mayan settlements along the way.
TU NYC will meet on Monday evening, February 11th, at 7 pm at the Orvis Manhattan store at 522 5th Avenue (enter through the service door on 44th Street). There will be two speakers — Jeff Yates to talk about Connecticut fishing and Brent Taylor to talk about the Delaware.
Jeff recently gave a terrific presentation for Theodore Gordon Flyfishers, both informative and entertaining. I highly recommend, particularly if you fish Southern Connecticut streams. I haven’t met Brent Taylor, but I’m looking forward to seeing his film collaboration with Monty Milburn, about fishing and life on the Upper Delaware. ”Reel” will be part of the 2013 Drake Fly Fishing Film Tour:
Looks like you’ll have to get your fix of fish porn teasers and product promotions while you’re schmoozing at The Fly Fishing Show this year. The festival has a whole new look, a new logo, and maybe new management. And Manhattan, you are OFF the list.
Friday, January 25th, 6:30 pm at the Doubletree Hotel in Somerset, NJ.

For more information and to purchase tickets, visit the TGF website.
Guests of honor:
Stanley Bryer, whose pioneering efforts in conservation litigation made him a hero to conservation lawyers. His groundbreaking work on behalf of Theodore Gordon Flyfishers and others is a superlative model for upcoming leaders in the field.
Elizabeth Murphy, selected as the 2012 Founders Fund Scholar, has already earned national recognition as a winner of the prestigious Compton Mentor Fellowship and local praise for her work as a member of the Town of New Paltz’s Environmental Conservation Board.
TGF’s November Luncheon speaker is Gary Edwards, acclaimed outdoor writer and television producer. Gary will talk about the excellent salmon and steelhead fishing on northern New York’s Salmon River and a few other Lake Ontario tributaries. For many years this area had a bad reputation in the fly fishing world. However, since NY outlawed snagging state wide 15 years ago and set up several “Fly Fishing Only” areas it has taken on a whole new life.
