January 24th proclaimed as "Cenla Fly Fishing Day"

An historic moment occurred at Tuesday's meeting of the Pineville City Council. Mayor Clarence Fields proclaimed Saturday, January 24th as "Cenla Fly Fishing Day".  FYI, that's the day of the first-ever Cenla Fly Fishing Festival hosted by Kisatchie Fly Fishers at Kees Park in Pineville.  In the proclamation, Mayor Fields - himself an avid bass angler and occasional flycaster - recognized the numerous opportunities for fly fishing in central Louisiana, and the fact that many of the state's freshwater fly rod division records come from the area.  Afterwards, Mayor Fields handed a framed copy of the proclamation to KFF president, Glen 'Catch' Cormier.  Thanks to Mayor Fields and everyone on the council, especially KFF member Christy Frederic, for this great recognition!
