Fly Tier: TBD

Speaker: Jeremy Shabot

When we are out on the water, we don't like to think about injuries or medical situations that could happen, but occasionally they do.  If something happens to you or you fishing companion, would you know what to do?

Jeremy is passionate about helping others and sharing his time on the water.  Rather than pretending to have any level of fly fishing acumen, he’ll be sharing a bit of his expertise in pre-hospital medicine.  His talk will focus on mishaps that can occur during a fishing trip, how to take steps to prevent them from happening, and what to do should the unfortunate occur.


As a special bonus there will be a door prize drawing, eligible for all meeting attendees, for a first-aid kit and fishing hook removal tool.
