This month's speaker is Mark Sedotti.

Mark Sedotti is a pioneer in Northeast saltwater fly fishing. He was born and raised in Port Chester, NY, 26 miles north of New York City on Long Island Sound. Here he developed the flies and casting techniques to fish the rich local waters for striped bass, bluefish, bonito, false albacore and other gamefish of the Northeast coastline. Naturally, Mark expanded into freshwater fishing over the years, and has vast experience fishing for trout, Pike, and even Makinaw with a fly rod.
