Fly-fishing author, angler and editor Steve Raymond will give a free presentation at the Nov. 14 regular monthly meeting of the Puget Sound Flyfishers

Raymond has been fishing for trout, steelhead and salmon of his native Pacific Northwest for more than 60 years, and has spent much of that time writing about the sport. He is author of nine fly-fishing books, most recently “Nervous Water: Variations on a Theme of Fly Fishing.”

In addition to 30 years as an editor and manager at The Seattle Times, Raymond also has been editor of two fly-fishing magazines, The Flyfisher and Fly Fishing in Salt Waters. He also has been an officer of the Washington Fly Fishing Club, American Museum of Fly Fishing and the Federation of Fly Fishers.

Now retired, he lives with his wife, Joan, on Whidbey Island.

The meeting begins at 6 p.m. at the Tower Lanes banquet room, 6323 Sixth Ave., Tacoma. An optional $15 dinner is offered after the presentation at 6:30 p.m., followed by the group’s meeting.
