Club makes donation to CCA Cenla Banquet

Again this year, the Kisatchie Fly Fishers are making a donation to the Cenla Chapter of Coastal Conservation Association of Louisiana for use at their annual fundraising banquet on Thursday, June 9th. The event will be held at the Riverfront Center in Alexandria.

Thanks to Roger Breedlove, Morris Houck, Paul Wallace, Glen Cormier, and Carlton Townsend for their contributions to the donation package.  The centerpiece of the package is a custom Lamiglas 9-foot, 5-weight rod built by our custom rod builder extraordinaire, Roger Breedlove.  Roger's work includes a wood reel seat, single foot guides, and green wraps on a gray blank that really highlight.  The rod itself is very light and casts like a dream!  In addition, Roger added a large arbor fly reel with centerline disc drag.

The entire package consists of:
- 9-foot, 5-weight fly rod
- large arbor fly reel with disc drag
- Scientific Angler cordura covered rod and reel case
- backing
- Rio Mainstream 5-weight floating fly line
- Orvis tapered leader
- Orvis 4X spool tippet
- Box of bream flies (more to be added)
- Casting lesson
- Half-day guided trip to Kisatchie Bayou by club "Kisatchie" experts for spotted bass and longear sunfish (aka, "Killer Gobbules")

In addition, Paul Wallace will be donating a package featuring a box of his famous "Paulies Jigs" crappie jigs, coozie and fish rag.

Again, consider joining CCA and signing up for the summer-long CCA STAR tournament.  Multiple ways to win including the Fly Divisions (East and West), Tagged Red, Tagged Speck, 14 other categories and four Youth Divisions.
