FOR THIS RARE OCCASION THE MEETING WILL HAVE A DIFFERENT FORMAT -
Rather than having the program end the meeting it will begin early -- right at 7:00pm - our program speaker John Williams will be talking about fly fishing for some of the largest Rainbow Trout on the planet. Lake Strobel in Argentina is best known as Jurassic Lake. A unique combination of environmental factors creates a habitat that features Rainbow Trout that are truly monstrous.
The doors will open early at 6:00pm - the program will start promptly at 7:00
The meeting will then take on its usual format AFTER the program

There are 8 spots available - 4 openings at 8am and 4 at 11am
Four - 2 hour classes - a total of 8 hours of instruction
