April 13 Meeting

We will meet in the Thunder Mountain HS library starting at 7 PM Wednesday.

Kent Sullivan will present on the Taku and Christmas Island. Kent has done great presentations on the Taku and catching huge halibut on a fly for us. I asked him to present on his Taku trips again. They were that extraordinary. I look forward to Christmas Island slides because CI is a wonderful place to fish and one I think all fly fisherman should do at least once. BTW I can arrange nice discounts at the best lodge there. This really isn’t a marketing ploy. I don’t receive anything for arranging these discounts.
