Join us at the
Rapidan TU Chapter 26th Annual Fishing Show
We are busily preparing for this year’s Annual Fishing Show being held on March 1, 2014 at the Fauquier County Fairgrounds. As in years past, this show promises another great group of vendors, demonstrations and speakers to prepare you for the coming fishing season.
This is also our only fundraiser of the year, and we are selling a range of raffle tickets for premium fly rods, apparel and equipment. And, as always, 300 raffle tickets are available for a chance to win an all expenses paid trip for two to Yellowstone.
Visit our Annual Fishing Show Page (CLICK HERE) for more information, directions for downloading and paying for raffle tickets, speakers and presenters list, and more.
Judson Walls, one of the Rapidan Chapter members, spoke at the March 5 meeting on leaders and building furled leaders. Rather than buying leaders from your favorite fly shop, Judd explained how easy it was to build your own knotted leaders and demonstrated how to create a furled leader at home. His presentation can be viewed and downloaded by CLICKING HERE.
