Northern Kentucky Fly Fishers - July 2016

Another Great meeting in July. 

The July COMBINED NKFF-BUFF meeting was really nice. 50 NKFFers and guests and 25 BUFFers had a wonderful chicken dinner (compliments of Hitching Post on US-52 over near Lunken Airport and NKFF's Mark LeSuer (pickup & delivery)), a very interesting program by Andrew Stump (2014 RBSF Winner and current KDFWR employee) about his Invasive Species Mitigation programs. We didn't get to do much with the Fly & Spin Casting Competition ... mother nature took care of that with some pretty intense rain and lightning. Not sure if anyone got to fish Banklick Creek this day.

Raffle wizards Josh Lillard (and Summer Raffle king Bill Renner) worked the crowd over selling raffle tickets. And many thanks to all the volunteers who helped setup for this meeting.
