The public is invited to the November 20th meeting of the Olympia Chapter of Trout Unlimited for a presentation by Jim Teeny on “Fly Fishing for Trout, Salmon and Steelhead”. Jim is readily associated with the phrase ‘fly fishing innovator’ and will discuss the Teeny Nymph, T-series sinking tip fly lines for fresh and salt water angling, and Teeny Series fly rods. This is sure to be an informative presentation filled with great tips on being more effective in pursuit of trout, salmon, and/or steelhead (and other species for that matter). Jim’s wife, Donna, an avid fly fisher, will also provide insights in a part of the presentation titled “Fly Fishing for Women”. Refreshments will be served and an outstanding fishing equipment raffle with over $200 of Jim Teeny’s products, flies lures, etc, will be done at the end of the presentation.
