Vous Raffle Items Needed
Sep 5th, 2012, 8:15pm
 
Due to the economy, donations have been slim from the Corporate world.  If anyone has anything to donate for the Vous raffle, the Club will surely appreciate it.  It can be dropped off at the Shop or just bring it to the Vous.  Please make sure it’s in good working order.  
 
I’ve got a few extra items laying around which I’m sure a member would be happy to win.:
 
1.      Rio Gold Fly line WF5F  “never been used, still in box”.  
2.      Sage rod VPS Light 3wt 7'9" 3 piece and case.   Used only once
3.      2 wt. rod never used.
4.      Waders x-small, used twice.  
 
 
As most of you know, I usually build a rod which we raffle off with playing cards.  $5 per card or 5 cards for $20.  I didn’t have time to build a rod last year and really heard from you guys.  Angry Shocked Shocked  Wink   So this year, I just ordered a 9 ft. 4wt. Sage One blank.  I should be able to build it by the Vous.  We will raffle it off as usual.    SmileyCool
 
Also, we will have the Heads or Tails game, which is always too much fun.  Everyone plays by placing their hands on their head or rear (tail).  I flip a coin and if it lands heads up, people with their hand on their head stay up front and people with their hand on their rear sit down.  If it lands tails up, people with their hands on the rear stay and people with their hand on their head sit down.  I announce the next round and we do this until there’s only one person standing, the winner.  Winner gets a custom made rod to their specifications.  They chose their rod, thread color, real seat, etc.  Last year I built a Sage Z-Axis for the winner.  Everyone needs to start practicing.   Grin Grin Grin
 
So, if you would like to join in on the fun and donate to the Vous, please drop off your item at the Shop or bring it to the Vous.
 
Thanks,
Chiaki

Well, Denise has been working for the past month or so on a custom Golden Trout picture which will be framed, for either a raffle or auction.  It looks awesome at this point, but not quite done.  This was Denise's brown trout she did for me back in April for my birthday.  The Golden Trout she's doing now is leaping out of the water after a mayfly.  Beautiful colors which I'll be sure to post when she finishes it this weekend.
 
 
 
Also, a friend is an expert knife builder and he's taking one of my deer antlers and making a custom 2012 Rendezvous Commemorative knife out of a 6" Damascus blade and donating it for a raffle or auction.  He's hoping to have it done in time.  He received an 8" blade by accident and had to send it back for the smaller one he ordered.  Let's just say we worked out a deal.
 
And of course, I'm still working on the swap rod.  Denise finished hers a couple of days ago.

Chiaki,
Are you still planing on being in Mammoth for the Faire. If so, I can bring a double rod case that is like new and leave it with you.

Improving your casting will do more for your flyfishing than any other aspect of the sport, or at least any that you have any control of.

If you're practicing catch and release, what difference does it make for the size of the fish you land.
