George’s River Trout Unlimited (GRTU) welcomes Jesse Robbins on May 14 in Rockport for the final evening of the 2017-18 GRTU monthly meeting season. Robbins grew up in Searsmont and is currently the Community Manager for Sage Fly Fishing in Bainbridge Island, Washington. Robbins learned to fish in GRTU’s local waters under the tutelage of his father, Jon Robbins, and caught his first trout on a fly rod on the St. George River. Robbins will present on the history of Sage Fly Fishing and the company’s fly rod manufacturing process.
Trout Unlimited is a non-profit organization with a mission dedicated to conserve, protect and restore North America’s cold water fisheries and their watersheds.
