Annual Meeting and Oyster Roast
We hope you will join us for an informative night at our Annual Meeting and Oyster Roast featuring the book, America’s Favorite Flies. Enjoy oysters, light hors d’oeuvres, beer and wine, fly casting instructions, and a book signing by the co-authors of America’s Favorite Flies, John Bryan and Rob Carter. This one-of-a-kind book features stunning photographs of the flies submitted by 224 collaborators throughout North America and the remarkable stories they have written about them. As part of the evening’s event, John N. Maclean will serve as the guest speaker.
Tickets must be purchased in advance and are $100 each. We also offer table sponsorships for $1,000 for a table of 8.
John N. Maclean is an award-winning author and journalist and the son of Norman Maclean, beloved author of A River Runs through It. The younger Maclean was for 30 years a reporter, writer, and editor for The Chicago Tribune, most of that time as a Washington correspondent. He was one of the “Kissinger 14,” the group of media who regularly traveled with Secretary of State Henry Kissinger during the era of shuttle diplomacy. After leaving the Tribune nearly 25 years ago, Maclean has written five non-fiction books about wildland fire, considered a staple of fire literature and training, and is at work on a sixth. His most recent book, River of Fire: The Rattlesnake Fire and the Mission Boys, was published his year. Maclean, an avid fly fisherman, lives with his wife, Frances, in Washington, D.C. and at a family cabin in Montana. They have two sons, Daniel and John Fitzroy, and five grandchildren.
