FFOTY – BILL DARBEE
Jan 24th, 2012, 7:21am
 
It gives me great pleasure to announce the Fly Fisher Of The Year is Bill Darbee.    Please join me for his awards dinner on Saturday February 11th at El Jacalitos.  Social hour starts at 5:00 pm and the awards dinner at 6:00 pm.  Please RSVP to me via PM or haramic@aol.com
 
Bill has been a great ambassador of fly fishing representing  the Club.   He has also worked very hard as President of the SSFFC for many years.   Tons of fun to fish with, he’s comes from fly fishing royalty.   Bill has been rock steady, dependable, and the FFOTY award is well deserved.  
 
Thanks,
Chiaki

So do we get to address Bill as King William? Sounds good to me! Congratulations Bill!

That's a heap of praise so far, but more is appropriate.
 
Just think, it started way back with your Uncle and his egg incubator.  The Darbee name is well represented on the Sunset side of the country as well as the Sunrise side.
 
Enjoy the well deserved praise.

Congratulations Mr. Bill!!! We couldn't think of a more deserving individual. Now how does this work..... do you have to order your own plaque?
