River Rendezvous 2008

     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!
