Catskill Rodmakers Gathering 2000 Agenda

This year's gathering will attempt to build a "Gathering Rod" based upon a Francis "Digger" DeGere "Pretty Darn Good Rod" taper. Everyone is encouraged to participate in the building of this special rod. Everything on the rod will have been made by the rodmakers. This rod will then be presented to the Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum to be used as a fund raising item at the Winter Fly Fishing Shows. There will be a group picture taken and everyone will have an opportunity to sign the booklet that will accompany the rod. This year we have use of the pavilion area by the pond which will allow us to have more space for casting rods and completing this project.

The gathering will be catered by the Dead End Cafe. A light breakfast and lunchtime buffet lunches including beverages will be provided as part of the registration fee.
