16th Annual Fly Fishing Youth Camp 2016
A HISTORIC Event will take place during the Stanley Cooper Sr Chapter of Trout Unlimited January 2016 general meeting. In honor of Presidents Day in February, Presidential Memorabilia Collector, historian and local businessman Larry Cook, of Cook and Cook Estate Liquidators, will be the featured speaker. His presentation will be focused on little known facts of some of our past Presidents and the personal side of the Presidency itself.
We all know that Presidents Carter, Eisenhower, and Teddy Roosevelt were avid sportsman. But did you know that Grover Cleveland was one as well!
He will also share some interesting facts of our past Presidents: as an example, do you know which President's mother and wife died on the same day in the same house? Who were accomplished artists and actually sold some of their works? Several Presidents had different birth names, do you know who they are? Can you name the President that passed away while doing a jig saw puzzle of George Washington?
For the answers to these questions, to learn more about the Presidency and to view some of Larry Cook's Presidential Memorabilia please join us at 730 PM, Tuesday January 12th 2016 in the VFW, Anthracite Post, Kingston, PA. All SCTU general meetings are held on the 2nd Tuesday of the month, (September through the following May...WEATHER PERMITTING), are open to the public and there is no admission charge.

Stanley Cooper Jr, will be inducted into The Catskill Legends of the Catskill Fly Fishing Museum on April 1, 2016, in Roscoe NY where the museum is located. Stanley Jr., returning from the Armed Forces in 1946, joined his father Stanley Cooper Sr., for whom the chapter is named, tying flies. Their clients included Presidents, such as Jimmy Carter, businesses as well as private individuals. Stan estimates he has tied about 2.5 million flies over 70 years of tying. A news article on Stanley was featured in the Sunday January 3, 2016 Times Leader (sports section). You may view it by accessing the Times Leader WEB page. More information about Stanley's induction will be posted as the date approaches.
