 Club Minutes
I am now the Club Secretary,   and because Jennifer didn’t duck fast enough, she is going to be the Club Treasurer.  There was some talk about getting Jennifer access to the Bank account (Jim, Al, and Colin).       I don’t remember if any one proposed, seconded, or voted on this stuff.
Next WEDNESDAY its rainbow trout time.  Colin will be tying a prince and a dragon fly nymph.
I read that a 52 buick is a dragon fly pattern !
