Smith River Trout Unlimited will meet at Rania's Restaurant in uptown Martinsville, on Thursday, June 2, 2011, at 6:30 pm. Steve Hiner, aquatic entomologist from VA Tech, aka "The Bug Man" will give a presentation on aquatic insect life of the Smith River with an emphasis on Mayflies, Sulfurs and Blue Wing Olives. Steve challenges everyone to bring him a sample of a recent find from the river so that he can show you how to use CSI techniques to reach a positive ID.

In addition to "Bugs" we will discuss the following:

Plans for our annual river clean up and cookout scheduled for Saturday, August 6, 2011

Plans for SRTU a booth at the Smith River Fest, Friday and Saturday, Aug 12 -13, 2011
