ANNUAL FUNDRAISER AND LIVE AUCTION
By popular request the spectacular SPFF silent and live auction will take place on March 15th. This is the principal fundraising event for our Club, allowing us to support our goals of education and conservation. This year’s tantalizing cornucopia of offerings will appeal to those who have never held a fly rod, and those who love to travel. Back in the lineup is the ever- popular patchwork quilt, a special Behind the Scenes at the Natural History Museum of LA tour and condo rentals in Mammoth and June Lake. Knowing that many of you already have all the rods and reels you need, the emphasis has shifted to guide trips and destination travel. We have secured two for one guide trips from Colorado Guide Landon Meyer and, closer to home, Owens river trips with Pat Jaeger. Club members play a big part with a custom rod from Richard Plunkett and custom fly tying tables from master woodworker Kevin Radanovich. The live auction will again give the lucky winner the chance to fish in the UK with angling great Charles Jardine. There is no doubt that Steve Esgate and his team have once again put together a catalog that has appeal for veterans and newcomers alike. Don’t miss this very special evening – bring your check book, credit cards and cash – all will be welcome.
