Our next meeting will be on Tuesday November 19th!
We’ll be getting together for some telling of fishing tales, some fly tying (experienced or beginner, if you have a vice, bring it). Patrick Mawhinney will be demonstrating how to tie a Bob’s Banger, easy beginner fly that’s great for salt and fresh water! We might even be able to convince Vic Aloisio to tie a sparkle minnow!
We’ll also be setting a date for the Tailwater Christmas get together and doing some noshing and libating!

Location: The Diner at Sugar Hill (map)
Time: 6pm arrive, 6:30pm eat, 7pm short meeting & presentation.
Tailwater wants to congratulate Jeff Durniak! Charlie Breithaupt’s comments sums up our feelings!
”On the last day of July, North Georgia Region Fisheries Supervisor Jeff Durniak retired after 34 years with DNR serving the citizens of Georgia, along with the fish and water of our state. It was fitting that Jeff’s last day was spent with partners from South Carolina DNR, US Forest Service and Trout Unlimited as they electro-shocked the Chattooga River for the annual sampling to study the health of the river. The event was highlighted with a “retirement cake” presented by Kathy Breithaupt, Chairman of the Georgia Council of Trout Unlimited. After the hard work was done, all enjoyed the cake with hearty handshakes and good wishes from all. Jeff has made a huge difference in the fishing and also in the work of Trout Unlimited. As a member of the Rabun Chapter, Jeff has given countless hours to the mission of TU, especially in educating and encouraging the youth. Best wishes from all for a happy retirement and next chapter of your life. See you on a stream somewhere.”
If you think only big fish are at the fishing resorts think again! Our friend Johan had a great day at Smithgall Woods recently. That stream is notoriously difficult to fish but he obviously had the magic offering and presented it perfecly! Here is the weblink for the park. And for a great article click this link!
