July 14 Picnic and Meeting will be at the Tucker's in Saxeville

Our next meeting and picnic is July 14 hosted by John and Laura Tucker at their home on the Pine River.   John and Laura are gracious hosts. It is a good opportunity to see old friends and make new ones. This year there will be a gathering of past presidents. There may also be some fishing stories told. If you have not been to a CWTU summer picnic I think you will like this one.   Picnic at 5:30 pm followed by a short meeting.  


See the map below for directions.  The Tucker's address is N5424 Sunny Hill Rd, Saxeville, Wi  54976.  Home  920-622-5401 and cell 920475-2271

CWTU/FVTC's Fly Tying Class met for the first time on January 12.  They will meet three more times to complete the class.  CWTU members David Pable, Bob Haase, Mike San Dretto, Jim Murphy, and John Gremmer are teaching the class.
