"How to pick the flies to fish in NE Tennessee"

by Mike Givney


Join us as OMTU chapter member Mike Givney talks to us about the hatches of NE Tennessee and which flies to use to mimic them.  Mike is a wealth of knowledge on this subject and we are sure that you will learn something to help you catch more fish in future.  Social time and dinner begins at 6:00 with the program beginning at 7:00.

OMTU Story


Here is a video that was made by OMTU members back in 1999.  It tells about the mission of OMTU and some of the past projects that we have worked on as a chapter.  The narrator of the video, Paul Anderson, recently passed away so we decided to post this video in his honor.  The projects that we have worked on over the years may have changed, but the mission remains the same.
