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.
Meetings take place at: Fairfax/Arlington Elks Lodge 8421 Arlington Blvd. Fairfax, VA 22031. Meetings will start at 7:00pm and run to 9:00pm.
See you there
