April Speaker- Remick Smothers, Principal with FlyTimesDC

The founder of FlyTimesDC, Remick Smothers was born and raised in the District of Columbia. A graduate of Rhodes College in Memphis, Tenn., Remick grew up fishing the nation's river and its surrounding waters for largemouth, smallmouth, and striped bass.

As a youth, he aspired to be on the B.A.S.S. Elite Series before making the switch over to fly fishing full-time in college. A passionate fish freak, Remick's fate was sealed when a graduation trip to the Bahamas altered his life, firmly placing a fly rod in his hands for good.

Since that first bonefish on a gin-clear Bahamian flat, Remick has pursued gamefish on fly with reckless abandon, from the Tidal Potomac to the Florida Keys, on the Chesapeake, Louisiana Bayous, in the Ozarks and Alaska, living for the moment that can only be delivered by big gamefish on fly.

Remick will talk about year-round tactics for Chesapeake Bay/Tidal Potomac Striped Bass.
