Feb. 2020 President’s Message  THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

That is what I have heard from several individuals inside and outside our club about us.

Over the last 2 months I heard this and it was an unexpected surprise. The  one came
from Tom Warriner and Sue Kelly at Grand Oaks Resort(GOR) saying you have such a nice group of people in your club. I got a similar complement from Erica Corely and several of her staff at Wildwood CC when I went to tell them we were moving our meetings to Grand Oaks(and hoping for a refund from them). She said, we really enjoyed having you here and wish you well in your move. You have a great group and we will miss you. You were always pleasant to work with and did a great job setting up and cleaning up after yourselves.

From the seller: 

"As we discussed today, I have a bamboo fly rod for sale. I purchased new when I was a teenager. It was used about ten times and then put in its case and stored.
I searched the web and found a site (customrodsmith@gmail.com) and saw the same rod at $360. I am willing to take half that ($180)."
