The 2008 Michigan Fish-In will be held from June 30-July 5.
Gates' Au Sable Lodge will again be our hosts for this
wonderful week of fun and friendship. Come join us and
fish on the Holy Waters of the AuSable, one of the world's
premiere trout rivers.
Our schedule this year will be similar to last year, with
most days fully open for fishing. We hope to have a speaker
one evening, to be announced nearer to the Fish-In.
On July 4th we will again hold our dinner, hosted by the
Fish-In Committee. The menu will include barbequed pork,
potato and/or macaroni salad, chips, baked beans, and
dessert. All food, condiments and dinnerware will be
provided. Attendees only need to bring their drinks,
a chair, and an appetite!
Donations to defray the cost of the dinner will be
accepted, and any monies left over will be donated
to the Anglers of the AuSable to assist in their
legal battles to keep this wonderful river pristine.
July 4th will also be the date for our annual casting
contests. This worked well last year so we were not
competing with the holiday's aluminum hatch. The exact
time of the contests will be posted later. The dinner
and the casting contests makes for a great way to enjoy
the holiday together.
Something new this year is the offering of a T-shirt to
commemorate the Fish-In. (Please note the shirts must
be pre-ordered, and paid for, by May 15) The details
and a picture of the shirt will be posted to the forum.
All profits from sales of the T-shirt will be split
between FAOL to assist in keeping the site and forums
running, and Project Healing Waters, to benefit our
wounded service men and women.
Come enjoy a wonderful week (or even just one day!) with
fellow FAOL members. We will post a more concrete
schedule as we have the information. Here is the
information from last year:
