Northern Kentucky Fly Fishers - May 2016

What a Great meeting we had in April. 

Keith Haungs amazed us by hand-tying furled leaders (no jig, no drill, just his hands)Joel Stansbury got a really great start on his mission to tie a LLAMA fly for every member of NKFF. Boone Links personnel served a great Lasagne dinner. Speaker, Lee McClellan wowed us with Blue Water Trail info PLUS information about THE PARKLANDS OF FLOYD'S FORK  (checkout their Fishing & Canoeing/Paddling links under the Things To Do tab).

Congratulations to John Branam on winning the Special Raffles
