Fish Creek Atlantic Salmon Club Meeting Jan 28.

Jan 27, 2016   //   by Geoff Schaake   //   Cack Handed, Fish Creek Atlantic Salmon Club Minutes, Mojo  //  Comments Off on Fish Creek Atlantic Salmon Club Meeting Jan 28.

The next meeting of the Fish Creek Atlantic Salmon Club is Thursday Jan. 28 @ 7:00 at the Camden Rod & Gun Club.

 

We will have two guest speakers – ESF Grad students Justin DiRado and Chris Powers – who will give a presentation of their two year NY Sea Grant project to study Atlantic Salmon Restoration in Great Lakes Tributaries.  The objectives of the study included: Evaluate strain growth, survival and movement in Lake Ontario and Oneida Lake tributaries, determine if adults are returning to Fish Creek, and analyze otolith microchemistry.

 

Their presentation will include an overview of the project, fieldwork and lab experiments conducted, a review of their findings, and preliminary recommendations for rearing Atlantic salmon.

Club members helped with the stocking and electrofishing, had a great time, and learned a lot in the process.  This will be very informative and should help us do a better job raising and stocking our fish.

Thomas & Thomas Announces the DNA TroutSpeySeries

Dateline:  Greenfield, MA – November 15, 2015.

1-6-2016 4-24-33 PMUSA fly rod maker Thomas & Thomas is pleased to announce the launch of its DNA TroutSpey series for the 2016 season. The new DNA TroutSpey series enables trout anglers to cover the water like never before. These rods are defined by the ability to make long casts with ease and mend line far beyond the capabilities of single-handed rods. Traditional wet flies, large streamers and mouse patterns are all on the menu for the angler that prefers to cast with two hands. With a traditional progressive taper that loads easily yet has the power to reach distant lies, the DNA TroutSpey brings a new dimension to swinging or skating flies for big trout on big water.

Key Features: – Thomas & Thomas two-handed action in a new trout-sized series. – Four piece, multi-modulus graphite blank incorporating our latest proprietary composites and curing process. – Unique ferrule reinforcement technology visible on every section. – Low Friction Finish (LFF) on the Sapphire Blue blank extends casting range. – Fuji Alconite strippers and Universal Snake Brand guides. – Powder coated aluminum rod tube with precision milled cap and collar. – Made one at a time in Greenfield, Massachusetts, USA by craftsmen. The series is comprised of three models, an 11-1/2 foot 3 weight, 11-1/2 foot 4 weight and 11 foot 9 inch 5 weight. All models feature a western Spey grip of select Flor- grade cork, gunmetal gray milled aluminum up-locking reel seat with burled black ash spacer, and green wraps with red trim. The TroutSpey series can be viewed online at www.thomasandthomas.com and is available in fly shops now.

Commenting on the DNA TroutSpey series, Thomas and Thomas CEO Neville Orsmond said, “Incorporating the power of the traditional T&T two-handed action into rods this light was a real challenge, and Tom Dorsey spent a lot of time getting it just right. The results speak for themselves — when people see how effortless it is to make long, accurate casts with these rods, we think they’ll agree.” About Thomas & Thomas: Born in 1969 of an obsession to create the world’s finest fly rods, Thomas & Thomas sets the standard for craftsmanship, performance and aesthetics in rodmaking. From a small shop in rural New England, Thomas & Thomasbuilds timeless classics from bamboo and fiberglass and modern masterpieces incorporating the latest graphite technologies.
