Please join us for our FIRST IN PERSON CHAPTER MEETING in 2-1/2 years!  Union Street is a great place to relax and talk about conservation, fishing, brews, and enjoy what will be a great presentation by a master angler and educator.  Plus, you can reconnect with friends and network with new folks that support our mission.

The Union Street Bar and Restaurant at 107R Union Street is in Newton Center.  The restaurant is Green Line T-accessible with plenty of parking.  
We will also provide a virtual offering for the presentation portion of the event for those unable to attend in person, but you know the experience will not be as rich, and will start later, approximately 6:45 pm.

We encourage everyone to attend in person if possible as we need a good attendance in order for the restaurant to continue to provide this space to us free of charge. 

Please register in advance so we can plan headcount

Albies on the Fly

The nomads of the Gulfstream are tremendous fly rod gamefish. These muscular torpedoes are 30% faster than a bonefish. This talk will cover tackle and tactics to help you catch more albies on the fly. This presentation is made up of parts of the content presented at the Orvis False Albacore School held in Newport, RI each September.

 Peter Jenkins

Peter is grateful that his Grandfather gave him a love for fishing at a young age. He enjoys both surfcasting and fly rodding as the situation dictates and his favorite saltwater targets are striped bass, false albacore, roosterfish, and bonefish. He is the owner of the Saltwater Edge in Middletown, Rhode Island, a retailer focused on surf, fly, and inshore fishing. He is the Chairman of the American Saltwater Guides Association, a coalition of forward-thinking guides, small business owners, and like-minded anglers that believe in the value of keeping fish in the water.  We realize that abundance equals opportunity and that such opportunity drives angler interest and therefore the sale of rods, reels, boats, and guide trips. Peter is the Lead Instructor at the Orvis Saltwater Fly Fishing Schools conducted in Newport, RI. Peter has presented at clubs and fishing shows across the Northeast. He is a member of the Rhode Island Saltwater Anglers Association, Boston Fly Casters, Rhody Fly Rodders and the Newport County Saltwater Fishing Club. Peter has recently been selected as an Ambassador for the American Fly Fishing Museum.
