New Year’s Day Single Fly Event

Every year on New Year’s Day the Flatland Fly Fishers hold a fun fishing competition at Sedgwick County Park.  The club already has our shelter reservations for 2018.  We will be using a different shelter in 2018 then we have in the past.  We will be at Plum Shelter which has bathrooms and a kitchen to make it easier to do the breakfast.
