Speaker Meeting – Jerry Yates
September 7, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Welcome back MFFC! Fall kicks off with more space, an upcoming speaker, and a room full of shared summer fishing exploits! Come join us!
Jerry Yates of Stream Team Anglers will be September’s featured speaker. He will be speaking about fishing in North Carolina.
Jerry Yates, an FFI-certified casting instructor and North Carolina licensed fly-fishing guide, is the creator of Frog’s Fanny Fly Treatment, a dry fly powder sold by retailers across the country. Yates grew up fly fishing in the Rocky Mountains; now, after 27 years as a law enforcement officer, he’s living the fly-fishing dream: Yates retired to the Smoky Mountains of western North Carolina, where he built Stream Team Anglers, a professional guide service and fly-fishing school. With clients, Yates focuses on appropriate casting and setting techniques, the entomology of aquatic insects, and how to effectively read water conditions to find fish. He particularly enjoys teaching those who are new to the sport, hoping to inspire an appreciation of the quiet sport for generations to come.
