Knots, Skwala Fly Tying, & Dam Removals!

Guest Speaker Dr. Mark Rockwell, former NCCFFI President, will be presenting a 60 minute webinar/behind-the-scenes look at the Klamath River Dam Removal project and a Q&A session for many of you who have questions about the most important dam removal project of our time. 

We will also have members there to help with beginning to advanced knot tying and a Skwala fly tying lesson for the tyers. 

Dr. Mark Rockwell Bio

Mark has been working on environmental issues since 2001, when he retired from his Chiropractic Practice in Redwood City, CA. He’s been married 53 years and has 3 children. In 2001 he became the V.P. of Conservation for the Northern California Council, Fly Fishers International. In 2005, after returning from a lobby trip to D.C. on Snake River dam removal, he was invited to be the California Organizer of the Endangered Species Coalition, working to stop the Congressional effort to rewrite the Endangered Species Act (ESA). He began working on Klamath river dam relicensing in 2003, signing the original Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement (KBRA) & Klamath Hydroelectric Settlement Agreement (KHSA) in 2010, and the current revised KHSA in 2015. It’s been a 20 year collaborative effort to provide the opportunity for the Klamath to return to its historic greatness.


“Conserving our great watersheds & their fish is something I’ll always be dedicated to

accomplishing. We owe it to our children & grandkids to pass along to them the same

greatness & beauty we inherited.” -Dr. Mark Rockwell, D.C.
