This event is the Flygirls annual meeting and our biggest fundraiser. Be part of the ac- tion! Register to stay at Gates Au Sable Lodge, on the mainstream of the Au Sable River. Take a guided float trip in an Au Sable Riverboat. Learn about the Au Sable River system. Just walk out the door, cast, catch fish and have fun! The lodge has a fire-pit for that evening fire. What are you waiting for – join the fun!!

Gates Au Sable Lodge, 471 Stephan Bridge Road, Grayling, MI. There is a full service fly shop on the grounds as well as the best restaurant in the area. The lodge is on the Holy Waters of the Au Sable River, catch and release only. A block of rooms is reserved at Gates Au Sable Lodge until August 23rd.
Do not contact the Lodge! Reservations are through registration for this event.

Friday night
we gather in the Board Room, for light snacks and to check equipment and plan for Saturday. BYOB and bring a snack to share. Not floating, then we can recommend wading spots and hook you up with a friend. I would encourage everyone, staying at Gates or elsewhere to gather. Our mission is to help those new to the sport or unfamiliar with the water. Or hang out waterside with a fire!

We will have snacks for you in the morning to take with you for the day. Float trips starting about noon. Breakfast and lunch are on your own if you want more than light snacks. The Lodge kitchen serves both, and would be glad to pack you a lunch. If you wish to float, you must arrange the float on your
own by calling the Gates Fly Shop @(989) 348-8462 and rates through Gates are as follows: Full-Day Trips: (8-10 hours, includes streamside lunch)-single angler – $325 double $350.
Half-Day Trips: (4-5 hours, no meals) one or two anglers $250.

In the morning there will be a casting tune up with Dennis Potter at Gates Lodge.
Dinner on Saturday night will be at the Hungry Fisherman, at Gates Lodge. You pick from a limited menu
item and pay. According to the number eating dinner, we will probably have to eat in two shifts.
After dinner, we will gather in the Board Room at Gates for the Annual Fund Raiser. Everyone bring a
small item (need not be fishing related) for the raffle tables to donate

And bring your cash to buy Flygirls merchandise as well as raffle tickets for our raffle in
March 2014 of a handmade bamboo rod.
