The September General Meeting of the Brodhead Chapter of Trout Unlimited will feature Larry Ott who will provide an interesting look at the earliest fly-fishing terminal tackle. He will include what collectors call “The Big Five” fishing lure companies. A number of other Mom and Pop companies will also be included. He will briefly touch on the Jamison/Decker World Fishing Tournament of 1910 and will conclude with a few of our Pocono lures.
Larry is a retired biology teacher with an obsession with vintage and antique fishing tackle. Larry is a Brodhead TU board member as well as a member of the NFLCC, National Fishing Lure Collectors’ Club, and regularly attends their National Conventions.
The event is free, and you can let us know you are coming and register online.
