CHAPTER MEETING MARCH 19th
Our guest speaker will be Captain Richie Gaines. Richie has been a light tackle guide and speaker for over 20 years. His experience, easygoing style, and humor have earned him a reputation as one of the top light tackle and fly fishing guides on the Chesapeake. A good guide should be part fish, teacher, and coach with a bit of stand up comic thrown in and Richie has all of these attributes. He fishes from a 23 foot Parker Special Edition center console, specifically rigged for light tackle fishing. Richie will talk about fishing Eastern Bay, Poplar Island, Miles River and around Kent Island. His program will be about light tackle fishing in these areas and will cover technique,tackle and locations. Richie will cover finding and catching Rock, Blues,Croaker, Spot and perch. Once again we have asked a top quality vendor, George Leonard of SPECIALIZED BAITS to offer his top quality jigs and jig heads along with a selection of custom metal jigs at show prices.
