Last weekend (Feb. 15-16) several members of the Delaware Valley Fly Fishers Club manned our Club’s booth at the Outdoor Sports Show in Oaks, PA. Club President, Wayne Radel, reported that there were large crowds at the show this year and our booth – resplendent with our new banner – was visited by many interested attendees. Pres. Wayne also said that we were able to sell a lot of flies that were tied and donated by our members – and so to You, our fellow members, we offer our sincerest appreciation for your generosity and skillful efforts making the Delaware Valley Fly Fishers the unique and wonderful club that it is!
