Come join us this Friday and Saturday on Lake Athens.
Lots of fun for the whole family and it's FREE.
If you plan on coming please RSVP to Johnny so he knows how much food to order.

There's that "Festival" word again - the new replacement word for "conclave / tournament / extravaganza?" It gets harder every year to find a catchy name, doesn't it? So far, none of the area's fly fishing events fit the definition of the word. And WHO CARES! Should be good anyway!

Definition of conclave. 1 : a private meeting or secret assembly

Fly fishers shy away from the word tournament.

Extravaganza - an elaborate and spectacular entertainment or production. Na, that's a bit of a stretch.

Just come have fun!

Jerry,

"Lake Athens Fly Fishing Fling" would do the trick.

"Fling" works here as a noun AND a verb. And, it creates an alliteration . . . f/f/f words.

How's that!

Ha! Brad

It was a great time in spite of the weather.

I caught a lot of nice fish Friday during the Sunfish Contest.
