Dear Fellow Fisherman,
It is time for the annual Fly Rod raffle to benefit the Boardman River. This is the 20th year I have donated a rod. This year it is my 6'2" midge deluxe for a #4 line, A two tip bag, and tube valued at $2,365.00. Since the removal of the Brown Bridge dam in August of 2012 we have done a lot of work restoring the part of the river that was a 200 acre pond. There is still a lot of work left. If you would like to help and maybe win the rod please make a check out for as many tickets as you would like. They are $10.00 each and only 1000 tickets were printed. One hundred percent of this money goes into river restoration. Please make the check out to Grand Traverse Conservation District GTCD. Mail to me at:
Bob Summers 90 River Rd. E. Traverse City, MI 49696 USA
Once we receive your check we will mail you the large part of the ticket stub.
Bonus! If you buy 10 tickets and win I will take you on a Fly Fishing Float trip on the Boardman River. We will use a AuSable River boat that was owned by George Griffith. He was the main founder of Trout Unlimited. I fished with him for 25 years using this boat. The trip will last 6+ hours.
The winning ticket will be drawn on Sept. 24th, 2016 at 4 pm at the Boardman River Nature Center, Cass Road, Traverse City. You do not have to be present to win the rod.
