And hats off to Chris for insisting on an early tournament. While some friends couldn't make it because
of the holiday, we all caught more fish, just barely beating the first May Fly hatch of the year.

Needless to say, the 4th Annual Siltcoos Lake Stringer Tournament was a huge success. Everyone had a great
time, plenty to eat and drink and most important, good friendships to enjoy and memories to cherish!
Oh, and thanks Sally for being such a wonderful hostess and putting up with a bunch of men!

We continue to be dedicated to the conservation of Oregon Sports Fishing.

Tight lines and good times!
