Bill Feccia is a longtime volunteer Fly-fishing instructor at the Pechmann Fishing Education Center who has donated nearly 600 hours during his more than 12 years of service in providing instruction to beginning fly anglers. When not fly-fishing or volunteering at the Pechmann Center, Bill also enjoys model railroading, kayaking, boating, and traveling. Bill’s favorite movie quote is attributed to Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca which he says, “Louie, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.”
Volunteers are the backbone of the Pechmann Center's programs and we recognize Bill for his long-term commitment and dedication in sharing his passion for fishing with thousands of beginning fly-fishing enthusiasts. Also, we thank him for being such a valuable part of the Pechmann Center team who simply set out to make a difference for strangers and for our wild resources.
