Just another heads up!

Smith River TU meeting is set for Thursday, March 6th at 6:30, Rania’s Restaurant, Martinsville.

We will be featuring a Gear Review. Have a rod/reel/line/leader setup that works great for you? Come show it off and tell us why.

What kind of vest/pack arrangement works for you? How do you arrange your fly boxes? What floatant works and what indicator system do you use? Split shot set up? Dry/droppers?

All of this and more. It’s a show and tell program, so please participate!

Also, we have a whopper schedule set. Especially for the next 4-5 months. We will discuss details of our first Project Healing Waters event, stream side meeting, river clean ups, Camping and fishing Trip to Grayson area, and our first Lyin’, Tyin’ and Fishin’ event to be held in may.

Lots of good stuff, see you there!

For you folks who want to go fishing next weekend we have a deal for you. Lying & Tying at the Bassett Cabin and opportunity to learn enough about the Smith to do some of your own posting about it on this forum.

The Smith is fishing good right now. They stocked both sections with 9-12 inch rainbows about a week ago and there is probably one more stocking before June - maybe next week. Tons of browns and the sulphur hatch is on so there is something for everyone.

Here is cut and paste from SRTU FB page:

May 16-18, Lyin’, Tyin’ and Fishing on the Smith River
SRTU is sponsoring the shindig.
Fish during the day and tie after dark in the Bassett Cabin along the Smith.
Limited to about 18 participants/campers, you can fully participate without camping (but NO drinking and driving!).
Open to one and all! Cost will be about $20 and will cover basic supplies and a BBQ dinner Saturday evening, other meals are on your own.
The cabin is rustic, with a very basic kitchen with frig, stove, deep fryer, griddle/grill. It has running water & electricity, but no heat or cooling.
8 twin size bunk beds upstairs, no linens. Two screened sleeping porches (w/4 available mattresses in the upper porch).
One large tying/socializing room on the first. Nice outhouse out back and a horseshoe pit and level area for tents by the river.
Water directly in front of the cabin is the upper stocked area of the Smith. Old special regs area is downstream 1 mi.
Contact Shane Pinkston for sign up and details: shanepink1@gmail.com
