Saturday June 29th Fishing location changed from Susquehanna

Due to unsafe wading conditions on the Susquehanna River this week we will change the location of the outing this day to the Tulpehocken Creek, Northwest of Reading, PA.
We will plan to meet at the parking lot below the dam at Blue Marsh Lake at 9:00am.
Access to this  parking lot is off of Palisades Drive.
Sorry for the change in plans.  The water flows are too high in the Susquehanna River for safe wading.  A weeks time will not change these conditions sufficiently to be safe.
The flow conditions for the Tulpehocken Creek are not expected to cause further changes to these plans.

DVFF Meeting June 26, 2019 – Our Guest is Dianne Tidy of Fly Fishers International

Finding Out West DIY with Dianne Tidy

Dianne Tidy

Dianne’s first fly-fishing lesson was in the Atlantic surf at Island Beach State Park in NJ nearly 15 years ago. She remembers being “the only woman fly fishing on the beach! I was lucky to have some of the greatest saltwater fly fishermen willing to share their knowledge with a beginner girl fly fisher.” Their willingness to share is the reason that she continues to mentor and encourage others to discover and enjoy fly-fishing.
Dianne is a Fly Fishing International Certified Casting Instructor and the only certified woman instructor actively teaching within the contiguous states of Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, Delaware and NJ.
Always busy in retirement she has volunteered and taught for Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, Casting for Recovery, Fly Fishing International, International Women Fly Fishers and various other fly fishing clubs and organizations. In August 2014 she became the first, and only, woman from the East Coast to lead the FFI Women’s Fly Fishing Program held in Livingston, MT. Dianne has taught the “Introduction to Fly Fishing for Women” at the Lancaster Fly Fishing Show for the past 4 years.
Dianne currently sits on the Board of the Directors of the Chesapeake Council, FFI and the Chesapeake Women Anglers. She previously served on the Board of Directors for the Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) of Maryland, North East Chapter.
Dianne and Ken Tidy live at the head of the Chesapeake Bay in North East, Maryland. Currently they are restoring a 1988 Airstream and hope to have it on the road later this summer. Taking their two (2) mini dachshunds along, they are headed west to fly-fish in Colorado, Montana and Wyoming.
