Teaser from Brian Babcock:" I thought I would post a little pre-auction teaser for all you centerpin fans out there. Junior managed to talk me into parting with a very special blank for the fundraiser. I just finished building it and it turned out pretty sweet. This blank hasn't been around for decades and when it was made, it was very limited. It's a Sage 4106LLB. These were part of a "light line" series that was arguably ahead of it's time. I have built it in the traditional style with a short butt and downlocking seat. Because this blank was part of my working collection when I was designing rods for Sage, it does not have the Sage screenprint on it. I have hand written the make and model. And BTW, it's brown. See you Thursday!"

This just came through the door via special delivery:

Harry Lemire Flies

Harry was a longtime Thompson angler and advocate and in his final wishes donated several flies to be used specifically for this sort of purpose. These are very special flies indeed. Floodtide, Moonlight and Dusty Miller all with Certificates of Authenticity are up for bid. There will be a minimum bid on these offerings.

Its been a hectic month since we decided to run with this fundraiser and what a true success last night was.




Many thanks going out to all who donated their time, items and trips and to those who came and showed support. Even those who weren't SSBC members and simply came out to socialize ended up contributing. The venue, food, and service all earned high marks.


Last years bench mark was surpassed by a solid margin.


Everyone from old Thompson hands to folks who have never even caught a steelhead let alone a Thompson steelhead came together to make this habitat rehabilitation project a reality.


Thanks again.
