Our committee has received donations with a value of over $40,000 in bucket raffle and silent auction prizes and items that include equipment, lodge trips, 2 for 1 guided trips, deep discounted destination trips, fishing art, fly fishing manufacturer’s discounts, coupons for local restaurants, wines and wine tasting, gift baskets and a multitude of other items for the non-fly fisher. There will be many things that you will want to win!
The evening will start at 6:00 PM with a Social Hour, Hors d’oevres and informal buffet of Salmon, Tri-Tip and Chicken entrees. The Speaker for the evening will be Hal Janssen, a nationally known author, world class angler, artist and innovator. A brief Awards Ceremony will follow giving recognition to members of Flycasters for their various club contributions throughout the year. The evening ends with the announcement of the bucket raffle and silent auction winners. This should be a fun evening. Remember, all proceeds go towards conservation efforts for Steelhead Restoration efforts in the Bay Area!
