Anglers to meet

The featured speaker at the Puget Sound Anglers-North Olympic Peninsula Chapter’s January meeting is John Beath, an author, club member, fishing guide and tackle manufacturer.

Beath will speak at the chapter’s meeting rescheuled for 6:30 p.m. Wednesdy, Jan. 22, at Trinity United Methodist Church, 100 S. Blake Ave. The public is welcome.

(Note: The print edition of the Sequim Gazette had listed a Jan. 16 meeting date but that has been since postponed because of inclement weather.)

Beath will be getting local anglers prepared for the blackmouth season that opens in Marine Area 7 on Feb. 1 and Marine Area 6 on March 1. He will cover charts of the local area and how to best fish the areas such as best tides, depth, speed and lure combinations.

The evening begins with viewing the raffle prizes and fish stories. The featured speaker presentation starts at 7 p.m., followed by a business meeting — which includes a financial report, government relations report, upcoming events discussions and fishing reports from members. Also on tap are refreshments, a raffle for fishing gear and a membership drawing (must be present to win).

The club meets the third Thursday of each month.
