All Hands on Deck!

The second Mill Creek Trout Fest was on Saturday, May 31.  See the poster below - we will be stocking Mill Creek with some fiesty brown trout beginning at 2 pm.  We had a lot of help last year - it was quite a bucket brigade.  Join us in Warrior Park (behind the Dexter Fire Department - almost below the bridge in town), be sure to bring the kids, they seem to have a good time turning the little trout loose into Mill Creek.

Take a little break in town for some ice cream or a latte and then break out the fly rod for a little catch and release fishing after 5 pm.  No prizes, trophys or awards - just a lot of good clean fun! Please push down the barb on your hook and catch and release.



A Look back at last year's Trout Fest!


February 2014 Member Meeting ReCap

Another great Member Presentation "Home Movie" night.  A nice full house enjoyed three swell trip reports and as always good food, good drink and goods friends!

Dave kicks things off with his Alaskan Adventure full of Fish Porn - the crowds begins to get excited!
Next up is Al and Tim reliving their trip to the Three Rivers Lodge in Labrador. You can barely make out the four legged flight into the wilds of Labrador to get to their destination.  More Fish Porn and the crowd gets a little more excited!
Last up is Len with a comprehensive look at the Patagonia region of Chile.  Luxury accomodations, 5 star meals and MORE FISH PORN!  The crowd grows restless!
See, I told you they were excited!

But wait - in a dimly lit corner of the room there's even time for a little Pre-Valentines Day romance - I guess the evening was a hit!

You better not miss next month's meeting - who knows what might happen!
