Chuck speaks to Texas Fly Fishers

Recently, FlatsWorthy President Chuck Naiser had the opportunity to speak with a great bunch of outdoor enthusiasts at a meeting of the Texas Fly Fishers. They are a Houston based organization associated with the International Federation of Fly Fishers and dedicated to the promotion of fly fishing education, conservation, and outdoors ethics. These videos were taken at the meeting. We appreciate Chris Sommers for inviting FlatsWorthy to speak. There are three videos.

Bad Behavior

The Houston Chronicle featured FlatsWorthy in Shannon Tompkins’ article “Gulf Coast Group Aims to Keep Bad Boating Behavior at Bay.” Tompkins spent a day on the water with FlatsWorthy President Chuck Naiser and Advisory Board President Troy Utz. …what we’re doing is resonating with people. We know we’re not going to change things overnight. It’s an education process and it’s got to be an ongoing thing. There is no finish line, just continually educating people and making them aware. The Chronicle columnist witnessed firsthand some of the behaviors which led Naiser and local anglers to form FlatsWorthy. This article not only provides a glimpse into a day on the water, but makes it clear why there is a need for FlatsWorthy. Thanks to Shannon Tompkins for a great article. Please share with your fellow anglers and send them the link to Join Now.
