On Nov 2 there will be a group going to the Deerfield River for a day of fishing. There is a space or two open with the Harrison Brothers drifting the river. This is a half or whole day opportunity. Also, Tim will lead the wading crowd to some great fishing. If you are interested, email me and I will pass the information on to the trip leaders. Please include a phone # for those last minute arrangements.
