New Rod Raffle Fundraiser Underway

Who says our members aren't talented? Board Member Chuck Campbell has donated a hand made by his own hand bamboo fly rod that we'll be raffling off. Tickets are $5 each or 5 for $20. We'll have tickets at meetings and upcoming events. We'll be drawing at the General Meeting in May. Good Luck.
