Thanks to all of you that attended and contributed to our most successful One Bug™ to date. Though conditions were beyond tough with near flood levels days before the event, you all rallied and carried on the tradition and spirit of the One Bug™, with some of you actually catching some really nice fish!
I couldn’t be happier with the enthusiasm and understanding that was displayed by all of you through the event and I am so lucky to call many of you my friends. I feel it’s safe to say that the Delaware River System has a much better chance of surviving and improving due to all your efforts and support, and for that FUDR thanks you all.
We put a lot of time and effort into the One Bug™ because you deserve a special weekend for all you do to help FUDR throughout the year. Due to your continued interest and support for our area we are making a true positive difference, and if we lost the support of any one of you, I’m sure we would slip back a step.
I look forward to working with you all the rest of the year and always look forward to your questions and thoughts.
Please enjoy Dennis Cabarle’s (password:FUDR@2011) great photos capturing the ongoing spirit and optimism that the One Bug™ 2011 has provided us again with this year, there are certainly no shortage of smiles in Mr. Cabarle’s photos!
All the best,
