We will also have a sign up sheet for the September 17 club trip to Gwynn's Island. If you have a boat and can take a passenger or two, please consider it so we can accomodate as many non-boat owners as possible. If you do not have a boat, you need to sign the sheet and let us know you need a ride. We will have a short gathering at the September meeting to finalize the details.
On October 8 and 9, we will again be helping out with the Great Bridge Heritage Festival with tying and casting instruction. The featured celebrity this year is Lefty Kreh, the biggest name and ambassador to the sport of Fly Fishing. Come visit and get some free casting instruction from one the best mentor's ever!
Don't forget the Harker's Island trip this year takes place from October 14 to November 5. Three weeks this year. The house is filling up so if you want to get a spot, sign up now before the action starts.

Thanks again to all who attended our Annual Banquet,

For those of you who were not able to make it,
I would like to go over some of the highlights for the upcoming year
that we talked about at the banquet.
We have an upcoming fly tying class on Thurs, Feb 18, the day of our regular meeting and if anyone is interested in attending please give Larry Clemens an email.
We will have our regular shad trip to Fredericksburg in April to fish for shad and stripers in the Rappahannock River. We also will going out to the western part of Virginia to fish for trout in April as well.
