March 1, 2012 Quarterly Meeting.


Smith River Trout Unlimited will meet at Rania’s Restaurant in uptown Martinsville, on Thursday, March 1, 2012, at 6:30 pm.  Fly tying will be the theme for our March meeting. Steve Yates, a well known tier at regional fly fishing shows will demonstrate some of the little tricks he has picked up along the way.

Steve will be backed up by three local tiers who have developed flies which catch their share of fish on the Smith River:

  • Lisa “Cricket” Hall will show off her famous “Red Cricket”
  • Paul Fogle will tie his colorful “Spencer Penn”
  • Al Kittredge will tie his infamous but very effective “Smith River Allieworm”

You are encouraged to bring your vise, tools and generic materials to follow along.

In addition to fly tying we will hear SRTU President Darrin Doss lay out a proposed schedule of events for the near future. These include:

  • a stream restoration project;
  • booth at the Philpott Expo;
  • stream clean up;
  • booth at the Smith River Fest;
  • program for June meeting;
  • possible group fishing trip.
  • chapter decisions/actions on two items of old business:  letter to DGIF ref stocking and PHW
  • Finally we will discuss any other business which would be of interest to the membership

You do not have to be a member of TU to attend our meetings.(You must be a member in order to vote on chapter business).   Anyone who has an interest in the Smith River Fishery is encouraged to attend.
Rania’s provides us with a meeting space with the expectation that the majority of attendees will purchase a meal. (Good food, moderate prices).  Address is 147 E. Main St., Martinsville, VA  24112. It is in the historic district of Martinsville known as uptown as it sits on a hill.

    I would like to know when and where the Smith River fest will be this year, thank-you

  2. Steve Pricer says:

    thank-you, what is the date, and directions from 220, Rocky Mount?

    • It’s on August 11th. Drive 220 south from rocky mount, then follow the by-pass around Martinsville towards Danville. You’ll see the large soccer complex on your right just after you cross the smith river. Take the next exit, which will be route 650(irisburg rd) to the right. Then follow the signs.
