Looking forward to seeing everybody again this fall.

I will have two models- 12'6" 7-wt. and 13' 8-wt. fo Scott Radian 2-Hand rods for try out.
Jeff Liskay and myself will be doing the basic, one-on-one on-water lessons again. To schedule a time, see us at the SA tent. We will limit these to a half hour each."
