President’s Retreat 2023

The President’s Retreat was held this year at Big Hank Campground on the upper North Fork of the Coeur D”Alene River on August 12th.  The event was well attended and we even caught fish.  The dinner was excellent and the weather cooperated, so everyone had a good time.

A lively discussion was held and many ideas were floated around regarding increasing membership contact, which has been affected by the pandemic.  Putting together a few outings and increasing the number of volunteers for projects will help, while improving our meetings with added activities will also add to the opportunities for members to interact.  Our hope is to return to pre-pandemic attendance and involvement as there is still much to do to continue to safeguard our fisheries and the sport of fly fishing.
