Fish With A Friend Event

Our annual “Fish with a Friend” event will closely follow our regular meeting. On Saturday, September 12th, we’ll meet at the Mirror Plant at 8:30 for an orientation and spread out for fishing from there. As many of you know they are now releasing water from 10-2 on weekends. This will be an excellent opportunity to fish with a “Smith River Regular” who knows how to fish around the generation schedule. We’ll reassemble downstream at 12:30 at the Trent Hill Canoe Ramp (adjacent to burned out Bassett Chair Factory) to compare stories and SRTU complementary burgers/hot dogs/soft drink. After lunch would be a great time to head back upstream behind the generation surge – falling water often triggers an aggressive bite. Bring a friend – bring two! We have over 30 miles of good trout fishing so there is plenty of room to spread out.

September Meeting!

Smith River TU’s program on Thursday, 6:30 pm, September 3rd at Rania’s Restaurant will feature well traveled and very accomplished flats, inshore and off shore salt water fisherman Keith Gallaher who will share with us some of the things he has learned about “Salt Water Fishing”. Keith does it all but specializes in saltwater fly fishing and is known for “killing the Albies” in the fall. In addition to a slide show and presentation he will bring some of the rigs, flies and “set ups” that have brought success. You do not have to be a member of SRTU – anyone with an interest in regional fishing opportunities is encouraged to attend.
Our regular meetings also feature a “swap shop” set up in the back of the room. Bring what you want to sell or trade. Slap your name and a price on it and recycle the stuff you don’t use or need. Look around for those “it was a good idea at the time” purchases you made but now reside in the back of your closet or garage. We always have several items ready for new owners. Be ready to haggle. Bring some extra cash and walk away with some neat “I need one of those” items!

Rania’s is located in the uptown or historic district at 147 E. Main St., Martinsville, VA 24112.
