All you folks that have been thinking about giving the Smith River up in Bassett VA a try, here is your chance to shorten your learning curve:

We are on track for the previously announced Smith River Trout Unlimited Picnic & Fishing Event, Saturday, June 16, 2004. (Meet for fishing at 8am and picnic at 4pm)

We will kick it off at 8am with a gathering at the Mirror Factory of anyone who wants to fish or learn more about the Smith River. If you are new to the river and can make it there by 8:30am we will pair you up with a "Smith River Regular" who will help shorten your learning curve.

Lunch is on your own but be sure to save some room for a hamburger and hot dog cookout at 4pm at the foot of the dam ((Hwy 727 which is the first side road to your right as you leave the Mirror Factory heading back to town of Bassett - road turns to gravel and dead ends at COE area at foot of Philpott Dam). We will compare notes, tell some lies, try to convince you to lend your support to the Smith River fishery and maybe head out again for some evening fishing if the generation schedule allows.

We will provide the main course, i.e. burgers and hot dogs along with the condiments. We will also provide soda and water (No beer or booze in COE picnic area - O'Doul's or Near Beer ok). Participants are asked to bring a covered dish or finger food to add to the table.

SRTU will have items for raffle so bring your wallet and walk away with some fishing related bargains.

You do not have to be a member of TU to attend this event. (You must be a member in order to vote on Chapter business) Anyone who has an interest in the Smith River Fishery is encouraged to attend.

For more information and to help us estimate how many will attend please contact Chapter President Robert Woods , (276) 806-0548 [email protected] or Chapter VP Al Kittredge, (910) 868-5235 [email protected]
