Fly fishing in the Savannah area will be the topic of the CCA of Skidaway’s February meeting and seminar to be held on Monday, February 18, at St. Peter’s Church beginning at 7:00 pm. The featured speakers will be Chad Dubose of Orvis Rivers & Glen Trading Company and dedicated Fly Fisherman John Parish. Fly Fishing in the Savannah area differs greatly from Fly Fishing in mountain rivers, streams, and lakes. Chad and John will discuss the lagoons in The Landings and the Low Country marshes and tidal fluctuations, as well as the different flies used and the equipment set-up. Attendees will learn about the various species available in our area and the differences in species availability in Summer and Winter. Chad and John will also give an introduction to the Fly Fishing Seminars that they will conduct here this Spring, jointly sponsored by the Skidaway Chapter of the CCA and the Orvis Rivers and Glenn Retail Store in Savannah. Chad DuBose is the manager of Rivers & Glen in its Savannah location. He has been a fly- fishing guide in Montana for the summer season, and 2018 was his 8th year guiding there. He frequently spends winters guiding in Patagonia. Having also fished Canada and too many states in the US to count, there are not many weeks in the year Chad is not on the water. A native of Los Angeles, John Parrish retired from the US Navy as a Captain in 1993 after 30 years of service. An avid fly fisherman, he has fished all over the United States, as well as internationally in New Zealand, Australia, Norway, Scotland, Bahamas, and three times in Russia. John has lived at The Landings for a little more than 3 years. The CCA’s January raffle prize will be a fly rod and reel from Orvis Rivers & Glenn. CCA is a non-profit organization with chapters on the Atlantic, Pacific, and Gulf Coasts. For more information about CCA of Skidaway contact Joe Tyson, 598-8765.
