Shad Run.

Dear Fellow BFA Orlando members and FFF club members from around Florida,

I would like to invite you to join us for a weekend of American Shad fly fishing on the St. Johns River. The American Shad run is one of the great unique fishing opportunities in central Florida. People come from all over to experience this annual event and we are proud to host fellow fly fisherman like you.

The following packet will give you all of the information needed to participate. We request that you RSVP so we can properly prepare for the event. Please give me a call or send me and email. BFA Orlando club members can also RSVP on our Facebook page. 


Tight Lines,
