On a weekend in
early May, 15 or so ARFers braved a very iffy weather forecast for
our 2nd River Rendezvous on the beautiful Locust Fork River. As
usual, the highlight of the weekend was the fellowship shared on the
river and around the campfire. The fishing was pretty good, too. We
all owe a big debt of gratitude to kreekn for organizing this event
and the owners of King's Bend for allowing us to use this beautiful
area. Since I mostly hung around the campsite and fished for bream,
I can't faithfully recount the many fish stories, memories, and
mishaps of the weekend. Luckily, many ARFers went out armed with
cameras, so their pictures are going to do most of the talking.
Thanks to all of those who took the time to commemorate so many of
the weekend's special moments!
Nice spot, Jerre!

This is always the highlight of these
