March Chapter Meeting!  Our Guest Speaker – Bob White!  March 5th at Juniors!

Please join us as world renowned artist and guide, Bob White, presents, “Beauty and the Beast – Fly Fishing for Trout and Golden Dorado in Argentina.”  Bob’s presentation will encompass his recollections from 40 years of trout fishing in Patagonia, and contrast it with his first experience fishing for Golden Dorado in the Parana Watershed of Northern Argentina.  You won’t want to miss this entertaining presentation!!!

Bob White is an artist and author whose work expresses a misspent youth. Instead of doing his homework, his nose was constantly in the outdoor books and sporting magazines of the day. Consequently, he has wandered between Alaska and Patagonia for over three decades as an itinerant fishing guide, looking for gainful employment. He now paints and writes for a living; which is to say, he’s still searching.

Bob was inducted into the Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame as a Legendary Artist in 2009. He was Fly Rod & Reel magazine’s Guide of the Year in 1988. As the 1994 Artist of the Year for the Alaska State Parks Foundation, Bob produced and donated the artwork for the first Alaska State Parks Foundation print. His work has been presented twice in Fly Rod & Reel magazine’s Gallery. Bob has been featured as a guide and artist on ESPN’s “Fly Fishing the World” and “Fly Fishing America”, as well as on Ron Schara’s “Minnesota Bound”. He currently illustrates the closing column for Ducks Unlimited magazine and illustrates every issue of the Trout Unlimited magazine. He regularly contributes artwork and the occasional story to a myriad of national and international sporting publications.

Bob lives in Marine on St. Croix, Minnesota with his wife, Lisa, their daughter Tommy, and their wonderful retrievers, Quill and Reuben.

Bob has graciously donated a print to the chapter and we will do a card raffle, at $5 a card for the beautiful print below (“Spring Peepers”, 19″ x 15″, signed and numbered edition of 100) .  Bring some cash!!!!
