If you fished, attended a class, caught fish, went to a seminar, netted fish, spent time at the ponds, held a fish, tied flies, wished you had caught a fish, stood alongside a river or stream, cursed because you missed a fish, floated on a lake ... if you participated in a club fishout or other activity (and got caught on film – FILM?!? What’s film??? ) Then chances are you will be featured on the big screen in the December Program –
The Flycasters YEAR IN REVIEW.
Always one of the most anticipated shows of the year is the one in which we take a look at ourselves - usually grinning from ear to ear with a big fish in our hands.
Hopefully many hundreds of photos have been submitted for Rich Stevens to assemble into a program that highlights all the activities Flycasters have pursued throughout 2017.
Make plans to attend the December 13th meeting and see what we did and how much fun we had.
