 We are extremely grateful to all of our Supporters and thank them for their part in helping CCA Conserve, Protect, and Restore our marine resources.

 This Fundraiser will help our Chapter with many activities this year, including the “Save a Kid – Catch a Fish” trip we host each summer, guest speakers, our Oyster Reef Building Habitat Initiative, and contributions to CCA’s conservation efforts.

Our event is an excellent opportunity to meet many fellow conservationists and fisherman, pick up some very nice Auction and Raffle items, and have a great time!  This year’s event will be catered, featuring Hors D’oeuvres, Dinner, and a Full Wine and Beer Bar.  We will again be featuring an Oyster Bar this year.

We are offering a special EARLY BIRD Raffle Drawing for all tickets purchased prior to February 28th.

Shawn Kimbro will be our guest speaker – Shawn is an accomplished musician, avid outdoors man, and writer. He will be entertaining us with his own brand of Bluegrass music by performing some original songs about fishing, and the Chesapeake Region. This year, Shawn will be joined on stage by Tom Lagana, Tom is a professional musician who is well known in the region for his jazz guitar performances.

Northern Virginia Chapter Meeting
February 20th, Mark Binsted, Fletchers Cove Fishing & Friends of Fletchers Cove: Mark will be discussing the wide array of angling opportunities throughout the calendar year at Fletchers Cove.  Mark will also give us an update on the “Friends of Fletchers Cove” organization that is committed to protecting this incredible fishery. We look forward to having Mark as our first guest speaker of 2018!

Mark Binsted and his son, Alex Binsted, both grew up in DC’s Palisades neighborhood along the Potomac River. They have spent entirely too much time fishing for shad, striped bass, white perch, sunfish, largemouth & smallmouth bass, and snakehead just minutes from their house. Both worked for the Fletcher family as teenagers. Alex is now an assistant manager at The Boathouse at Fletcher’s Cove and also produces beautiful shad flies, streamers and jigs. Mark, a residential architect, has help organize the annual National Capital Angling Show for NCC-TU and writes their popular email “Shad Report” every spring.
