For more than a decade Flycasters has held a Swap Meet instead of a formal club meeting in July - this year the Swap Meet will be held on July 12th - at the Moreland Apts meeting room. Doors will open early at 6:00pm and business should be concluded by 8:30pm --- Doors locked at 9:00
SELLERS MUST BRING A BLANKET OR SHEETS OR BUTCHER PAPER TO PROTECT THE TABLES FROM BEING SCRATCHED -- THIS IS MANDATORY FOR YOU TO DISPLAY YOUR GOODS
First - every year members bring loads of their "extra" gear, clothes, flies, fly tying materials, books, and everything fly fishing related you can think of. There are always bargains -- sellers leave with less gear than they brought and buyers leave with more gear than when they came in. Especially for those new to fly fishing or new to the club it is a great place to buy the gear you need at really low prices.
Second - The Tournament Casting Team will be raising money for the ACA National Casting Tournament - being hosted by San Jose Flycasters July 26 - 30 This will be another opportunity to show your support
Third - the Conservation Committee will be selling items on its table and the proceeds help fund the efforts of the Conservation Committee - theirs is typically the largest table with the most gear and some of the best bargains.
Fourth - it is a great social event. Everyone gets to hang out and talk --- all night long ---- Plan trips, catch up with one another, and simply socialize.
Fifth -- the only formal business is that you can sign up for any upcoming fishouts, seminars, clinics, and other club events. Sign up sheets and the fishmasters will be on hand to answer questions.
It is a great event -- hope you can make it ...
