American Casting Association
I submitted my annual report as Chair of the ACA Communications Committee for the ACA Business Meeting held in July. I'm currently creating publicity for the winning US Casting Team and for the new ACA casting book. I'm still sorting and organizing all the photo/audio media from the 1940s to 2000 from ACA's Netherton Archive and Collection. Digitizing and sharing could take me a couple years!

Trout Unlimited
I'm looking forward my casting presentations at the Candlewood Chapter and the Hamonasett Chapter this spring and summer. I'm also pleased to be volunteering for my tenth year for Family Fly-Fishing Day in May with my home chapter, Mianus TU.


This fall, I'll be looking for BWO hatches, school bluefin and stripers in the northeast. These tuna trips are for an upcoming article. I'm still taking photos for my upcoming striper book too!
