Saturday evening for those still around for dinner we will eat left-overs and if needed we will order pizza.

Water will be available from electric water coolers. Bring your water bottle from last year. First time attendees will get a water bottle at check in.

Check In - Starts at 1 pm on Thursday. Check in early and then spend time casting and visiting

Parking - Look for the parking signs

Auction Items – Please bring something for the Silent Auction. A rod building item that you don’t use or anything related to rod building, fishing or any other unique item.

Please bring your Auction Items with you when you check in!!

Chairs & Beverages – There will be wooden folding chairs. We suggest that you bring a comfortable lawn chair and your choice of beverages. We will have water and coffee.

Duty Rosters – When you check in be prepared to volunteer for some small duties, especially meal helpers!

Sell n’ Swap – Saturday from 4-5 pm there will be tables available. You can put out anything for sell or swap that is related to rod building or fishing - after you have made your donation to the auction!

Rods for Sale – If you have a rod for sale place a piece of blue painters tape on the rod with your name. We strongly discourage sales pitches and ask that your rod speak for itself. If you are interested in purchasing a rod, then talk to the seller. All rod sales are between the owner and the buyer. CRR and its committee members do not endorse any maker’s rods. The CRR Committee reserves the right to refuse sellers who are unethical or who we feel are taking advantage of this event in any way.

Fishing – All the rivers should be in Prime Fishing Conditions

Contact the Fly Shops listed on the Fishing Information Page for fishing reports and suggested patterns.
