The Port Ludlow Fly Fishers will hold a fishing-gear garage sale on Saturday, September 17, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the upper parking lot at the Beach Club.
Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife and the Fly Fishers club stock trout every year for the fishing public. The club maintains the Teal Lake Park grounds and makes the necessary annual restorations. Together with local cooperating business partners, the club has maintained Teal Lake as a premier fishing location in Jefferson County. As costs of maintenance and hatchery fish continue to increase, the club is asking residents for help in continuing its stewardship of the park.
Community members can participate by donating funds or no-longer-used fishing equipment to the Teal Lake Project. They can also help by purchasing gear at the sale. Proceeds from the event will be used to further the club’s ongoing objective: “to keep Teal Lake Park for those who enjoy its peaceful natural environment and to maintain a pristine fishing location.”
Continuing with this year’s 20th anniversary of the Teal Lake Project, the updated benefactors sign has been posted at the park. The Fly Fishers club encourages residents to visit the park, where they can use the hiking trails, watch ospreys and eagles compete for fish, or enjoy a sunset as they fish for rainbow trout.
“As more and more lands are being commercially developed daily, parks are becoming more valuable sanctuaries that need our protection,” said a representative of the club. The club can be reached at a2205|||plvoice|||org|||PL Fly Fishers Info
