Speaker/Topic: Guide Chris Karwacki from Chesapeake on the Fly

Chesapeake on the Fly is a full saltwater fly fishing and light tackle guide service that runs charters on Tangier/Pocomoke Sounds and the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries.  We specialize in shallow water angling on pristine grass flats, tidal creeks, and marshes.  Chesapeake on the Fly caters to both the experienced and new angler alike, and can custom build your charters to make for a memorable experience on the Chesapeake.  Our trips are based primarily out of Crisfield, Maryland and depart from the Somer's Cove Marina boat ramp.

Chris is a third-generation angler who has spent his entire life fishing the Chesapeake and the coastal bays of Maryland and Virginia. During the mid-90s he began fishing Tangier and Pocomoke Sounds almost exclusively in order to pursue the speckled trout and striped bass that thrive in the surrounding islands, marshes, and grass flats of the region.   To Chris, there is nothing more rewarding than providing a high-quality experience for his anglers.  Whether it is a first ever caught fish, or catching a trophy fish on the fly rod, anglers tend to fall in love with fishing in this beautiful and remote region of the Chesapeake Bay.

A Message from VCFA President Mike Buss:

Thanks again to all who attended our Annual Banquet, we all had a great time with lots of fish stories told and raffles won.   For those of you who were not able to make it, I would like to go over some of the highlights for the upcoming year that we talked about at the banquet.   We have an upcoming fly tying class on Thurs, Feb 18, the day of our regular meeting and if anyone is interested in attending please give Larry Clemens an email.   We will have our regular shad trip to Fredericksburg in April to fish for shad and stripers in the Rappahannock River.  We also will going out to the western part of Virginia to fish for trout in April as well.   We will be going up to Jones Pond to fish for largemouth bass over a weekend in June.  In Sept we will be going up to Gwinns Island to fish for stripers, bluefish, and puppy drum.  Of course we have our annual trip to Harkers Island with the rented house from Oct 14 thru Nov 6.  Be sure to mark your calendars for Oct 7 and 8 as we will again be helping with the Great Bridge Festival and this year Lefty Kreh will be there and you will  not want to miss that.  As you can see, we have a full lineup of events planned throughout the year.  

I hope to see a lot of you at all of them.  Thanks again for a terrific 2015 and let's make 2016 even better!

Tight lines to all,
Mike Buss
