Sandy River Chapter Fishing Clinics

•     Where- Sam Cox Bld. Glenn Otto Park

•     When – Setup 8 AM, Class starts 9 AM, August 9

•     Duration- 9 AM -5:30 PM 

Instructors- here is the plan for the day. I also will have a 20 page packet of rigging illustrations and other materials for all of you and the students at that time. To save time and postage, I am sending you this so you’ll know where your sessions are during the day.

Please bring any rods and reels you’d like to use to demonstrate your particular technique session. Remember….these folks are beginners! Keep your presentation as simple as possible. You’ll only have 20-30 minutes to cover your particular subject, so give them the basic dynamics of it, and skip the esoteric parts.

Thanks for volunteering for this!
