We have 5 people signed up so far.

If you haven't been on this trip, you owe it to yourself to try it.

It is a personal favorite of mine, and many others of the club.

This will be the next out-of-town trip that I will be going on, and it is a personal favorite.

The fishing is great, and the river is clean and clear.

Take a look at the photos from years past to get an idea.

Puck, I signed up Bill Wissen. He was my buddy that made the trip with us a couple of years ago. We are both anxious to go. You got anymore of those little black magic bugs of yours? I'll buy a doz. from ya. Kelley.
