As part of our organizational agreement with Fly Fishers International, AFF can obtain some merchandise based on the number of new members for FFI from our Club each year. This year we were able to get a TFO 8wt 4 piece rod. We added a TFO 7-8 Large Arbor Fly Reel to the rod and held a drawing at the November 2018 meeting. To be entered in the drawing, you had to be a new FFI member in either 2017 or 2018. The winner was Shayne Pond of Sterling and he was completely surprised! When Rich called him to let him know his first reaction was "Winner? Of WHAT?" He picked the items up this weekend and was pretty excited! Congratulations, Shayne! Thank you for being a member of FFI.
