AFF Members, your Club needs you! On Saturday April 26, AFF will be promoting fly-fishing at the Annual Great Sutter Creek Duck Race! This event will provide good exposure for the Club. The Great Sutter Creek Duck Race runs from 8:00am-5:00pm on Saturday April 26, and will take place at Minnie Provis Park on Church Street, Sutter Creek.
AFF volunteers are needed from roughly 8:00am-5:00pm for staffing the information/demonstration booth where Duck Race attendees can learn about fly-fishing and the Amador FlyFishers. The information booth should be staffed with 1-2 people the entire time. AFF members should sign up for 2-3 hours shifts (sign-up sheets will be provided at the April 15th AFF Meeting). Anyone willing to demonstrate fly tying at the information booth?
