This panel discussion is jointly presented by Clearwater Trout Unlimited and the Batten Kill Watershed Alliance. The participants will be Alliance boardmembers Rich Norman, Marty Oakland, and Tom Rosenbauer. All together these guys have about a hundred years worth of experience angling in this river. Advice about flies, techniques, locations and more will be provided, and will help an angler to take advantage of the habitat restoration improvements in the productivity of the fishery in both states.
A $30 contribution will purchase a raffle ticket for an Orvis fishing rod and an Alliance membership. The rod will be an 8 ½ foot 5 weight Helios 2 rod. It is the premier Orvis rod – top of the line and 100% made in the USA in the Vermont rod shop. The winning raffle ticket will be drawn at the meeting.
Rich Norman is a life long angler and expert fly-tier. Marty Oakland is a fishing guide and operator of the Quill Gordon B&B in Arlington. Tom Rosenbauer is the host of the Orvis podcast and named Angler of the year for 2011 by a national magazine.
