The Chapter Meeting has been moved to Tuesday, February 23, 2016
Greg Cwalina of Patuxent River Flies will give a presentation on tying a decorative fly for a display, or as part of a pin, earring, or key ring. Greg has been doing this for ten years and some of his wares are currently for sale at the Beaver Creek Fly Shop. He has also demonstrated some of his skills at previous SVTU fly tying sessions and Izaak Walton League meetings. If time permits—and we have enough tying vises—attendees will get the chance to try their hand at tying their own creation.
January is time for our SVTU board member elections. Please consider joining our board. It doesn't take much time, and we meet one night a month. We have several open positions and we need volunteers.
You can still register for our free Fly tying classes. More information can be found under Meeting & Events.
Our core membership area stretches from the Washington Beltway to Hancock MD and includes western Montgomery, southern Frederick, and Washington Counties.
We also welcome members from anywhere outside this geographic area.
When you join the SVTU Chapter $15 of every new membership fee comes back to our chapter. To join, click here (you will be redirected to National TU).
What we do
SVTU supports the national vision in
the following ways:

- Our volunteers help with maintenance activities on Little Seneca Creek in Montgomery County, southern Catoctin brook trout streams in Frederick County and maintenance of warmwater streams like Great Seneca Creek and areas of the Potomac River
- Youth fly-tying and fishing education events, adult fly tying, and assistance to Project Healing Waters events with our partner organizations
- Social events and our annual BBQ for members and guests
