Some of us are planning a floatilla on the upper Andro on August 25th with special guest and floatilla honoree Don Lynch. We hope more of you that know Don will come out and fish with us. Bring your canoe, drift boat, raft or pontoon and come float and fish with Don. We’ll have a cookout afterwards. Bring your own food to grill and perhaps some beer to drink! The more people the merrier.

We’ve got 3 drift boats and 1 raft...who else is in? Get your canoe and someone to paddle with and come to the first ever Don Lynch floatilla. What a great way to finish your summer! Cookout afterwards!

Remember, you don't need a driftboat as a canoe is fine. Hell, we can even lash a few together...think of the challenge with 4 guys floating down the river all trying to cast and no one paddling! Now that'll be a sight to see and of course present some new challenges for you experienced flyfisherman.

Come on... only 4 boats?! Get your canoe and someone to paddle with and come float with the chub master Don Lynch. Cookout afterwards and I’m sure there may even beer and bourbon. Okay, I know there will be beer and bourbon but that’s not why you should come float. Come enjoy the god father of FFIM, Don Chubini!

If Don is not your thing, you can always float with us just to compare your bikini wax with Ken’s. But really- this is all about getting out on the water with friends for a warm water float and respect for our man, Don Lynch. As Ken alluded, there will likely be an adult beverage or two to imbibe upon. And I’m sure more tha a few laughs will be had.
