Georges River Trout Unlimited welcomes Nick Mills for an evening of Fly-Fishing in Baghdad and other Angling Adventures, in Rockport on January 14.

Georges River Trout Unlimited (GRTU) welcomes Nick Mills for a presentation entitled Fly-Fishing in Baghdad and other Angling Adventures January 14 in Rockport.  Mills is a global strategic communication consultant with many years of experience as a teacher, trainer, adviser, spoken-word presentation coach, public relations counsel, broadcaster and professional storyteller. Mills grew up in Thomaston and learned to fly fish for trout in the Alder Stream in Eustis with his father and brother.  Once hooked on the sport (pun intended) he fished at every opportunity in every place he could -- in the rivers, streams and ponds of Maine; in the mountain ponds of Utah, where he was stationed for a year in the Army; in high Andean lakes in Colombia, where he served as a Peace Corps Volunteer; and even in a lagoon surrounding one of Saddam Hussein's palaces in Baghdad. Mills spends a good deal of the fishing season at his Upper Dam camp and is past president of the Upper Dam Camp Owners Association.

Mills experience as an Army combat photographer in Vietnam led to the publication of two books, Combat Photographer and The American Experience in Vietnam – Reflections on an Era.  He has also written for Huffington Post, MaineToday.com, Bangor Daily News, Foreign Policy, Yankee Magazine, and Gray’s Sporting Journal, and writes an occasional blog, The Virtual Angler, for the Bangor Daily News.

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. The GRTU meeting January 14 will be held in the upstairs mezzanine at Flatbread Company in Rockport. The meeting will start at 6 pm with an informal gathering for those who wish to converse and enjoy a casual meal. The featured presentation begins at 7pm. GRTU conducts a raffle directly following the speaker.  Membership is open to all, and the Georges River chapter welcomes individuals from midcoast and downeast Maine. Meetings are free and open to the public. Visit with us on Facebook, or online at www.georgesrivertu.org.
