Congratulations to my friend and fishing partner Joe Odierna (on the left) who has been awarded Long Island Trout Unlimited’s Silver Trout. The recognition is for outstanding service to the cause of protecting, preserving and restoring our cold water fisheries. He has been especially generous in his years of conducting and co presenting the annual casting clinics for LITU.
Joe is a long time board member, volunteer, casting instructor and more. Those of you who follow this blog will know him as the creator of the Joe-Stack fly which is featured in the book America’s Favorite Flies.
The award is well deserved.
The gentleman presenting the award is Peter Dubno, another friend and fishing buddy.
