The Georges River chapter of Trout Unlimited welcomes Rob Giannino as its guest speaker on Monday, Nov. 14, at 6 p.m. at Flatbread Company, located at 399 Commercial St.

Giannino is an avid and passionate fly fishing professional who is part-owner of a fly fishing sporting camp in Quebec. He will speak about his own past learning experiences and his introduction to the sport through a Trout Unlimited fly fishing and Casting for Beginners program. That program has brought him to become a writer, photographer, videographer, aerial drone pilot and Trout Unlimited member speaker.

He will discuss how to improve our angling skills when targeting brook trout and landlocked salmon in remote locations by employing more effective techniques. The talk will include spectacular photos and drone footage of back country river and lake landscapes. Giannino has contributed his time and talents as a feature writer and photographer to various publications in New England and Canada. Please join us to hear about fishing for wild trout and landlocked salmon in remote locations.

Trout Unlimited is a non-profit organization with a mission dedicated to conserve, protect and restore North America's cold water fisheries and their watersheds. Chapter meetings are held on the second Monday of the month, October through May. Our November and December meetings will be held in the upstairs mezzanine at Flatbread Company in Rockport.
