Northern Kentucky Fly Fishers - May 2016

What a Great meeting we had in May. 

Wow ... What a way to start the outdoor season off. 58 folks showed up including 5 guests plus one 1 1st-timer (Joel Moon's son Jackson). The 5 guests ALL JOINED! Hooray for that! 12 members provided chili and the competition was heated ... 3rd Place - "the philosopher" Jarold Benson, 2nd Place - Andy Johnson (accepted for him by Jerry Willen because Andy is in the hospital) and the winner and New NKFF CHILI KING (drum roll please) ... DON BECHER for his gator, cajun sausage & turkey chili.

Dave Dreves did a great presentation on the new Hatchery Creek at the dam in Jamestown. He even had pictures of a few of our NKFF reps at the Grand Opening of that new stream on April 29th. What a wonderful success story this little gem of a stream has been. You really need to go see it and fish it!

Of course Raffle wizards Josh Lillard (and Summer Raffle apprentice Bill Renner) worked the crowd over selling raffle tickets. And many thanks to all the volunteers who helped pull this meeting off.
