The sites and times posted by cockatouche might be well worth the drive for you. Fly fishing can be a complicated thing leaving a person with way more questions than answers. By attending a get together you may well make connections that will provide a real fast track and help to avoid much of the minutia that tends to muddy the waters for beginners. I should mention that I've been to Kittery and understand the logistics of the drive from where you are to the meets.
