5th Annual Fredericksburg Fly Fishing Show
March 22nd, 2008 at the National Guard Armory in Fredericksburg, VA
Monday, February 4, 2008
Chuck Adams was terrific as usual albeit a slight incident in the seminar. The poor girl who won a free clinic with Chuck used the wrong pin on her first shot at the target, and the arrow ricocheted off the backstop, through the window glass, and out into the parking lot. Fortunately for everyone no one was injured. It was quite a moment of shock and silence for all when that happened!
and his wife were a wealth of knowledge of predator calling. Great folks with a great product!!
