President's Hook, July 2017
Items of Note....
"Many thanks to Kory Murdoch for his service to the club and time working hard on the board, coordinating the Mat-Su Sportsman's Show, and greatly assisting in many other club events the last year and a half. Kory has had to step down to family and professional reasons and will be sorely missed. I know that he plans to continue to be active (even more when fishing season starts winding down – probably about December for him!); hopefully he will get the opportunity to serve on the board in the future. We have had the fortunate opportunity to gain the services of longtime, life member Mr. Ed Atwell. I look forward to taking advantage of Ed’s experience, ideas, and history with the club to move forward with good things. Welcome Ed!"
"I would like to congratulate Mr. Dustin Slinker, owner of The Bait Shack for winning The Andy Sorenson Sportsmanship Award, a Trophy which is displayed at the Downtown Hope Center (formerly Downtown Soup Kitchen) and $250, sponsored by The Alaska Fly Fishers, at The 2017 Downtown Hope Center Slam’n Salm’n King Salmon Derby at Ship Creek. The award is presented annually to the person who, voted on by fellow anglers, is deemed to be the most sportsmanlike during the derby."
"An update on the August AFF Annual Picnic, which serves as the General Membership Meeting for August. Mirror Lake Park will be available for us to use on August 7th. We have the pavilion reserved from 4pm-11pm; AFF provides hot dogs, hamburgers, brats, paper plates, plastic ware, and beverages (alcohol is not allowed at this facility). Please join us and bring your favorite side dish, bag of chips, desert, or your own main course to share. There will be games, door prizes, and fun for all. Feel free to bring you waders, rod and reel, and float tube for some great angling from the shore or out away from the bank."
May the fish be with you and be safe out there,
President, Alaska Fly Fishers
