I'm bumping this one. It is getting to be that time of year again. Let's see how we can get this going. If we can get this going on week night in Knoxville I would be most happy. I am a member of TU in Maryville and we have a chapter in Knoxville as well as in Clinton. I think now is the time to get a Federation of Fly Fishers club in the Knoxville area. I'm hoping we can get enough people to at least do some river clean ups both inside the park, and in Townsend as Byron has suggested in another thread. I'm also interested in clean up on the Clinch. I'm in no way trying to compete with TU it's just that Knoxville need another organization to complement what we already have. Let's hope Dave Duffy is still interested in helping us. I can probably get this going with some support from the veterans.

Thumbs up Count me in...

Hans,

As a fellow Knoxvillian, I would definitely support this cause. I recently joined up with the LRTU chapter, but I think there is room enough in my life for another organization dedicated to the same ideas.

Glad you pushed this again.

smokyfisher!

Sounds like you are one step ahead of me, that's is great news. Do you want to take the lead to see if we can coordinate this somehow. I'm committed to something else on Thursday nights for six weeks or so but any other night will work for me. I'm not sure how we can coordinate this. Anyway, my email is ahlstedt@knology.net. Email and I will give you my phone numbers and such.

Montana and back country and everyone else, let's spread the word and see if we can get everyone's email as a start so we can coordinate to meet.

Count me in again as well Hans. If I remember correctly, Dave told me we needed at least 5 people to start a local chapter.

Update: We are trying to get this going. I have spoken with one person who is going to contact Gander Mountain here in Knoxville to see about the availability of their meeting room. We are tentatively going to try for a Tuesday night and we are hoping to get a start up meeting sometime in November or so. If you are seriously interested in this please email me at ahlstedt@knology.net so I can get a tally for this. We are going to be affiliated with Federation of Flyfishers as a charter club. Keep the emails coming and this could be a great fun thing to do.

IF YOU HAVE SHOWN AN INTEREST AND MADE A POST PLEASE EMAIL, TO MY EMAIL ADDRESS ABOVE SO I CAN BEGIN A TALLY. sorry for the shouting.

Thanks,
