Well-known Olympic Peninsula fly fisher and fly tier Skip Morris will hold a one-day fly fishing seminar that will benefit the ongoing management of Teal Lake in Port Ludlow.
Using a grant from the state Department of Fish and Wildlife and with support from local merchants, the Port Ludlow Fly Fishers developed and constructed Teal Lake Park. The 16-acre fly fishing lake is open to the public and includes access for physically disabled anglers.
With the help of other area fly fishing clubs and individuals, the club continues management and maintenance of Teal Lake Park. It hosts regular field days to maintain the park, and both it and the department make annual trout plants.
All proceeds from Morris’ seminar will go to the club’s Teal Lake fund for continued management and maintenance.
Morris has published 17 books on fly fishing and fly tying during the last 25 years and has written more than 200 magazine articles on the subject. He served as the host on six instructional videos and was among the regular hosts of the “Fly-Fish Television Magazine” show.
The seminar will include four sessions, including a fly-tying demonstration and information to help anglers improve their success when fishing lakes such as those found on the North Olympic Peninsula.
