The weather appears to be shaping up nicely for tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing all the regulars plus some new faces. This is a fun, low key tournament with some very good anglers. Eric from the Back Country has some fly lines and other items to give away and Nancy is stepping up with the food with her famous chicken wings. As always, we expect a great event.
