We’re almost through rainy April and soon, yes soon, the creeks will no longer be high and muddy. That’s when we’ll hit it hard on May 2nd at the Neely Henry Open presented by Greater Gadsden Area Tourism when you could enjoy some lake fishing or hit up one of many major creeks that are “in bounds” such as Big Canoe, Big Wills, or Terrapin Creeks. Hey there’s four outfitters on those creeks you could arrange a shuttle with and really cover some ground (see map for phone #s)! Friday night’s Captain’s Meeting will be at Back Forty (or pay $10 to skip). Saturday afternoon’s weigh-in will be at Blackstone Pub & Eatery. Included with your registration is a FREE ticket to CukoRakko Music & Arts Festival which is at Horse Pens 40 all weekend. You’ll have to pay a little for parking and camping if you go but you’ll get to see some cool bands and can really maximize your weekend away from home. So what are you waiting for? Get signed up! Also, please travel down to Avondale Brewery in Birmingham on April 29th to catch the Fly Fishing Film Tour ($15), proceeds of which will benefit Coosa Riverkeeper.
