Over the past summer I was approached by several people who wanted to donate flyfishing equipment and books to our club.   
Mr. Kenneth Barry  of Charlestown RI   donated 100 books to UFTRI 
Mr. Chester Siok donated all of his fly tying equipment and materials he collected over the past 40 plus years.

UFTRI would like to thank these gentleman for thier generous contributions and wish them the best of luck.

Most of these items will be part of our monthly bucket raffles or an auction which will be held at the December meeting.
We have obtained 11 flyrods, 120 books, and many flytying materials 
Fly Tyers for this meeting will be as follows:

John McCall will be at table 1 and will hold a question and answer sesssion on freshwater fly tying and techniques.

Peter Burgess will demostrate yet another version of the Clouser a very popular fly for Stripped Bass and Blue fish.

If anyone is interested in instructing at a third table please get in touch with Mr. Roger Lima to make arrangements.
