DON’T MISS OUT ON A GREAT TIME WITH FELLOW RABUNITES

 

This month offers up a unique opportunity. Our guest speaker is the new Chattooga River District Ranger of the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forests, Ryan
Foote. Foote began his career with the Forest Service in 1999 as a seasonal Fisheries Technician on the Lassen National Forest in California. Following his graduation with a degree in Freshwater Fisheries from Humboldt State University, Foote converted to a permanent position as a Fish Biologist where he worked for the next 13
years on restoring habitat for Spring-run Chinook salmon and steelhead habitat on public lands, while supporting efforts across the forest. In 2014, Foote moved to the Idaho Panhandle National Forest, serving as the Deputy District Ranger on the Coeur d’Alene River Ranger District. He helped lead the District in large landscape restoration efforts, managing recreation and precious metal exploration programs, and responding to large wildfire events. Most recently, Foote served as the Acting District Ranger position on the Uwharrie National Forest in central North Carolina. Ryan comes to us on Tuesday for a great evening of Q & A with the ranger. So get your questions ready and come on out to a great meeting and help other Rabunites welcome Ryan!! Social starts at 6:30 and meeting at 7pm. See you there!

No easy fix for felt!

Felt is a superior wading sole, but it’s also a transmitter of aquatic invasives. Sadly, there’s no easy fix. It’s on anglers to clean their gear thoroughly. A very important read from TU National.
