A special recognition to the Davis Family:
Original derby members Dianne Davis and Leslie Sturgeon (and the rest of the family who could not make it) – thank you for joining us and helping present the 2nd Annual Rick Davis Award.
WE would especially like to thank all the anglers who participated! Without you folks supporting the efforts we strive to achieve – we are able to continue to support the NH fisheries and continue the education of Best fishing practices! Mark your calendars now – for the 32nd Annual Winni Derby to be scheduled for the weekend after Mother’s Day, 2014.
We look forward to seeing everyone again!
