Fish With A Friend Report
SRTU hosted an event last Saturday to promote the Smith and the club to non-members and newbies. We had decent turnout, with at least 8-10 members and 5 guests. It was a beautiful day and expectations were high that we could put these guys on some fish. Guests came from Fayetteville, Raleigh and Marion, to name a few. Club members were there to impart some wisdom,advice, share patterns and techniques, and show stream access points. We met at the Mirror Plant and some teams went upstream, some down and some jumped in from Fish Camp to the Hayfield. Everyone had a good time, but not many fish were harmed on this day. The water temperatures were high, the fish were not very eager, and there may have been some sloppy wading to blame. We met back at the parking area at 1pm for a club hosted lunch. The new folks promised to return and we split up from there. Thanks to Scott Griffin for organizing the day and arranging lunch. Al brought the club tent and tables. The club officers think this should be an annual event. If you would like to head this up for next year, please let yourself be heard. Maybe more than one day? Spring and Fall?
