FFV May 11th Dinner meeting

NOTE: Our May dinner is the second Thursday, the eleventh,  and not our normal third Thursday!

 

Please join us on Thursday May 11th for an afternoon and evening with Kevin Morlock of the Indigo Guide service.

 

 

Kevin Morlock

Kevin will talk to us about Carp fishing in western Michigan. He guides on his home river the legendary Pere Marquette and also frequents the Muskegon River, Manistee River and White River.

 

Kevin has been a full time guide in west Michigan for over 10 years. Kevin is a skilled and knowledgeable angler who enjoys sharing the art of fishing with all his clients.  He loves guiding, often saying “what other job could I spend the day on a beautiful river, sharing my passion for fishing with great people”.  Of interest, Kevin finished the Iditarod in 2007, an 1,100 mile long dog sled race across Alaska; he is 1 of less than 650 people that have finished the race in 35 years.
