This is the monthly PRSC club meeting at the Vienna Firehouse. We always have formal program with a speaker who can tell us how and where to fish or a special event.
Our featured speaker for the February 26th meeting will be Dusty Wissmath, a well-known guide, author, fishing/casting teacher, fly designer and speaker. Dusty will speak about fly fishing in the Yellowstone region, where he regularly guides and teaches.
Dusty started his fly-fishing school and guide service in 1995 after working as a Biologist in Wyoming and East Africa. He also served as the lead instructor at the L.L. Bean Fly Fishing School in Virginia and taught at the Wulff School of Fly Fishing in New York. He is a Federation of Fly Fishers Certified Casting Instructor and is a member of the Board of Governors of the F.F.F. Guides Association.
When he’s not teaching or guiding, Dusty gives casting demonstrations and workshops at sports shows from Montana to Virginia. Our Program Director Bill Amshey saw Dusty present at an event and was inspired to go out and buy and use a fly rod. Dusty's articles and photographs can be found in several outdoor magazines. Dusty is on the Pro Staff of the Scott Fly Rod Co., Ross Reels and Hyde Drift Boats, and is a fly designer for Brookside Flies of Denver, Colorado. Dusty learned how to teach and how to analyze the cast from experts in the field of fly fishing such as Joan Wulff, Lefty Kreh, Macauley Lord and Floyd Franke.
