Looking for something to do on Valentine’s Day? Join us at our February meeting on Tuesday, February 14th, as we welcome Tom Martin, owner & operator of Heavy Water Anglers Outfitters and Lodge. What a great way to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Bring your significant other and learn about fly fishing western Maryland.

Tom began his fly-fishing journey at a young age, growing up chasing trout in small mountain streams. When he realized he wanted to turn his passion into a career, he attended Sweetwater’s Guide School in Livingston, Montana. After graduating at the top of his class, he was offered a position at one of Sweetwater’s premier lodges in Alaska. In between the Alaskan seasons, he put his main focus on guiding professionally back home in Maryland, Pennsylvania, and upstate New York for trout, bass, musky, and steelhead.

He offers instructional clinics from spey fishing to fly tying. His goal is to provide clients with the best knowledge, skills, and equipment in the industry to make their fly-fishing adventure the best it can possibly be.

Tom will be doing a Western Maryland trout fishing presentation. Come join us as he talks about their new lodge, all the great rivers where they offer trips, and some other local wading spots. Hope to see you there at 6:30 PM: Room A170, Tuscarora High School, Frederick.
