The Annual Opening Day Outing may not be the official start of Spring, but it sure feels like it. Nothing seems to let you know its time to start fishing like getting together with a bunch of guys and telling fishing stories. Many of the club members have been getting together on
opening day for decades. Many more have joined them over the years. And not a single person has ever been made to feel like they shouldn’t be there. If you’re not familiar with trout fishing, this is a great place to get started. Someone will take you down to the stream and try to help you find a fish or two. However, there are also several other possibilities within a few minutes drive of Bobbie’s farm. If you are not sure where to go, stop by Bobbie’s first and someone will available to help with any questions. Young or not so young, come out and spend a couple hours with your club members and have some lunch.
