January Update

What an attendance at this month's meeting. A lot goes into trolling umbrellas. A lot more than most people think. To anyone who may have missed this month's meeting, we will now be offering a "Family Membership" deal. This form of membership is 50$ and covers an angler, their significant other and directly related children under the age of 16. For additional information ask Either Greg Vespe, Kurt Rivard or Corey Smith. This is a new deal we are offering so bare with us as we work out any kinks that might arise.

The  banquet is Jan 28th. This might be our best banquet yet! We have some mind blowing raffle items including; a custom rod, reel, Boga grip, lobsters, pliers, gift certificates and so much more. We continue to look for donations for this event and they do not have to fishing related. We encourage any and all donations.  We have over half the tickets sold already so be sure to get your banquet tickets before they run out!  

 Tickets are 10$ and guests are more than welcome! Food,raffle, and awards make for a great winter's night! 


Also please begin organizing and saving any 2016 fishing related pictures for our annual banquet. Please  email your photos to: [email protected]
