Film Tour Raffle Items

As many of you know, the Fly Fishing Film Tour is coming up on Thursday. Just a reminder that the tickets have now SOLD OUT and we have a full theater.

We are now compiling the raffle prizes and thought we'd list them here, as well as on the webiste. There are a few more en-route to the shop and we'll do our best to post once they arrive.

Just a reminder that the proceeds from the Raffle this year to to benefit the Mayfly Project. This is a great organization that mentors Foster Children through fly fishing. Jess Westbrook, the founder of the group will be on hand for the show and will give a short presentation at the beginning. He'll also of course have some literature there about the group and info on how we can get involved.

In the meantime, you can learn more on their website HERE.

These raffles do good things! And we'd like to thank all of you in advance for participating.

Last year we raised over $3,500 for Reel Recovery. It was enough to start a retreat here in South Central Ohio!!!!!! We will be announcing the date of the retreat and some details at the show and also then on our website. Many folks had offered their help and now is the chance!!! We have been "making a difference" each year through our contributions and look forward to keeping it up.

Here is how the raffles will work-

Tickets will be $5.00 each or 5 for $20.00

The Grand Raffle items will each have their own "hopper" for you to place a ticket in. This allows you to put tickets on items you are interested in.

The Regular Raffle items, hats, stickers, tippet, lines etc. will have 1 box for tickets and the items will be selected first-come, by the winners.

***We will be accepting Cash, Checks and Credit Cards at the show for the purchase of Raffle Tickets.
