The 2021 Flyfishers’ Club of Oregon Auction and Keith Hansen Memorial Paddle Raise is taking place online this year.
It opens on May 17 at 8 am PT and closes on May 23 at 8 pm PT.
We will be celebrating the work of the North Umpqua Coalition to improve the presence of wild fish in that region of our state. Our paddle raise will help with repairing the damage done by forest fires in that area as we will dedicate funds raised to support the work of the Coalition.
We are honored to have one of Oregon’s finest guides, with an equal commitment to conservation, as our Honorary Co-chair for 2021: Brian Silvey. He has been engaged in conservation as long as he’s been an angler and guide. He grew up on the Deschutes and Sandy rivers, and has spent thirty-years guiding on those waters.
We have completed our twenty fantastic auction items! Many favorites are back, and some fabulous new ones. There are great fishing guides, food events, venues to stay at, and the infamous “Spectacular Goodie Boxes” filled with beverages, flies, gift certificates and treats.
For detailed information, please register for the auction soon so you can make plans with friends for those events you want to secure. You can use this link to set up your account.
