Fishing from the shore but float tubes and kayaks are quite successful.

Participants will also receive Mike’s package of special flies.  He will give these out at sign-in to those signed up by the cutoff date 5 days before the event (Midnight of the 15th of April).

The longest sunfish (micropterus salmoides do not count) will be the winner of the trophy.
Largest bass, most bream caught, and most flies lost to trees will all be noted.

Get signed up soon.

Those that are not signed up by Sunday, 2013-04-14, will not get a free box of Mike's killer flies.

On a side note, an accurate count will help us determine how much food to cook.


We have 17 people signed up as of 2013-04-10-1130.

We typically have 40+ show up for this event. 

Don't be bashful, sign up early.  Let's get a good count.  I would hate to have to feed folks hotdogs instead of brisket.
