The local Taconic Chapter of Trout Unlimited will hold its monthly meeting at 5 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 24, at Bass Water Grill.
Marla Blair, owner and operator of Marla Blair's Fly Fishing Guide Service & Instruction and author of "Positive Fly Fishing," will be the guest speaker.
Monthly meetings are open to members and the public. A social hour at 5 p.m. often features fly-tying demonstrations. The featured presentation from 6 to 7 p.m. is followed by an optional dinner where attendees can order off the menu.
The Taconic Chapter welcomes members of the recently closed Hoosic Chapter. Women are especially welcome. Parents are encouraged to bring young people who are interested in learning a new sport. Fly-casting and/or fly fishing lessons can be arranged for anyone interested.
