Club Survey

We are working on posting this survey online, but in the meantime if you haven’t taken it, please take the time to give us your input at our October meeting. It is vital we get your feedback so we can improve how we serve our members. And if you did participate last month, thank you for your time. We’ve gotten some really good preliminary input. Some people indicated they would be willing to volunteer but did not leave contact info. Please e-mail me at Most of our tasks involve 1-2 hours of your time but help the board tremendously. Survey runs through the end of the year.

Please print the document above, fill it out, and bring it to a club meeting.

Thank you for taking the survey.


May 16, 2017 Club Meeting: Hotspots on the North Shore

May 16th Club Meeting: Kevin Moore: Hotspots on the North Shore

This is the seminar everyone has been waiting for. Kevin will discuss many productive fishing spots around Plum Island and the North Shore. This is highly prized information that will not be posted as a video to the club website. You have to attend the meeting to learn about Kevin’s secret spots. Be prepared to take notes!

  • Kevin Moore is a long-time club member, past President and Junior’s Program Director, avid fly fisherman, and an authority on fishing our waters.
  • Kevin says that if you think he is giving away your secret information about a good fishing spot, he probably first taught you to fish there anyway!

Doors will open at 7 pm for dinner with club business meeting at 7:30 and seminar at 8:00.

Please join us on Tuesday, MAY 16, 2017 for another great angling seminar.  Our monthly meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month at the Newbury, MA Fire Hall (7 Morgan Ave, Newbury, MA 01950.)  The doors open at 7:00 PM. Dinner is served at prices that will not break the bank. 🙂 The club meeting starts at 7:30 PM.  After the meeting, we have a seminar by a featured angler. Seminars are free for club members; there is a $5.00 charge for non-members.  Membership information is available here.

Farewell, Mackerel: Beloved Surfland Mascot Passes

Dear Members:

It is with sadness I must report the passing of Mackerel, beloved Surfland mascot. Mack, as some of his friends called him, passed away after a brief illness last weekend. I found out about his passing while at our annual fundraiser. Mackerel could often be seen at the shop usually up on the counter or on his bed by the window. He even graced the front of a very popular T-shirt sold at Surfland.  A gentle soul, he would love his tummy rubs as he lay in the sun by the window. Please visit Surfland’s website for his full bio and when you stop by the shop, please give your condolences for the loss of this wonderful creature.
