TVTU Fishing Day
As a result of the pandemic, TVTU canceled the annual fishing/campout at the Konnow Fish camp. In lieu of that event TVTU held a afternoon fishing and cookout on June 5th at the Konnow camp. This was a no mask but common sense social distancing event and the turnout was great.
The weather was a little on the hot side (understated) and the fishing was not the best but it was a great social event. Best of all, Duke and Jen Preston provided a nice cookout.
