Club News:

Happy New Year! Did you set any fishing goals for 2019? Perhaps you want to master fishing the Ned Rig or make it into the Top Ten in the club. I suggest the Three P’s – Planning, Preparation, and Participation. The most important one of the three is participation. I could write a book on the other two P’s. Maybe planning and preparation should be topics for presentations by some of our successful club members during the next few months.

I am attaching a Member Information Form that you should complete and bring to the upcoming meeting. This form provides personal contact information for the club roster and a record of annual dues and other fees that are being paid by members. I will have some hard copies at the upcoming club meeting for those that may need one.

Fishing Reports:

Bring your fishing reports to the upcoming meeting and share them with everyone. The weather forecast is not looking very good for this coming Saturday. I will see you at the meeting Thursday evening.
