5th of April at Damon Seven Lakes.

A catch log will be given to all at sign-in, and a drawing from those will take place for all of them turned in by 1830 hrs, for a special set of flies and case.

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 21st of March).

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.

Lunchtime is at noon, 2014-04-05-1200.  Be late = be hungry
