Meat of this email: Per my last update, we had $360 available in our "Treasury” as of the end of 2016. The January 7th meeting brought in an even $50 from the purchase of Curt Nordrum’s excess tying materials and Hugh Langevin’s excess tying material (courtesy of Ward), and the meeting today (January 14th) brought in an additional $32, bringing our total Treasury to $442, confirming the guesstimate of our Assistant Treasurer, John Gigler.
Ward has promised to bring in the last box of Hugh’s materials next week, and Brian is due to return with a box of Curt’s materials, so bring your spare cash when you pack your tying kits for next Saturday morning. Also, per the last blog, Scott is issuing a Bass Worm challenge of sorts.
Finally, Phil Eldred, Member Emeritus, who is now in Nampa, Idaho, and who somewhat razzed me for fishing for trout with “belly-button lint”, has totally gone over to the dark side, fishing for Idaho, Oregon and Nevada trout, as shown by the attached pic of an 18” rainbow. Not a bad fish! (He does admit to still chasing smallmouth on the Snake River, though.)
