We will be getting together for some casual fly tying again this Winter. SKH has generously offered us the use of their Conference Room at the Lititz grocery store. You are welcome to join us at one or all of these events, for an hour or as long as you want. Join us even if you don't tie flies yourself but just want to spend some time swapping lies about fishing. Lessons in the basics of the art can be arranged if given prior notice.

If interested, please send an email to us at in part to help us know how many people to expect as well as to be able to notify everyone in the event winter weather forces a cancelation. You do not need to be a member of DTU to join in.

Our March Meeting will feature Adam Nidoh, a guide in northeast PA. He'll bring us up to date with "The Recovery of the Lackawanna River in Scranton". This often-overlooked stream is making a remarable comeback from the pollution it once suffered and is fast becoming a destination stream for trout fishermen. Learn about the work that's been done and maybe pick up a few tips on fishing it from a man who knows the stream well.
