                                  Anthony Massar

Anthony Massar passed August 8, 2023 leaving a very large empty spot in the hearts and minds of family and friends. His time with us encompassed years working as a labor relations specialist serving in several states and as a Binghamton City Councilman. His interests were varied and included fishing, hunting, golf, karate and instructing others in various aspects of these past-times. He especially enjoyed teaching youth fly fishing and fly tying. He was a long-time member of BC Fly Fishers and traveled with the club many times enjoying the camaraderie as well as the challenge of fly fishing. He would always reach out to those he encountered offering instruction when he saw a need. He was known to go so far as to loan equipment and pay for fly fishing lessons attempting to get others “hooked” on the sport. Tony never hesitated to give expecting nothing in return.

In remembrance of Tony and to honor him, BCFF with the approval of his family dedicating this year’s scholarship awards to him. Seniors who are headed to college this fall majoring in a field such as conservation, biology, fishery, and wildlife sciences, etc. and who attend high school in Deposit, Whitney Point, or Owego may apply. Applications may be obtained from the high school counselor at their school.

To help support this program BCFF welcomes contributions that will be applied toward these scholarships. Should anyone wish to contribute go to the BCFF website at bcflyfishers.org and press the “DONATE” button or mail your contribution to BCFF, 712 Elm St., Endicott, NY 13760. Please indicate that the donation is dedicated to the Scholarship fund in the name of Anthony Massar.
