Thanks.....it is an impressive place. A real "gentleman's" fly fishing club (of course I have no idea how they let me in
There is a full time property manager who lives in a six room cape on club property...he's a former guide. The clubhouse has two floors. Upstairs is a very comfortable room with a gas fireplace. Attached is a full kitchen. Downstairs is a fish cleaning room with all the tools, cutting boards, fridge etc. Also a full bathroom. Next to it is the "alibi"
room....just another meeting room overlooking another pond. There are picnic areas on each pond....some have gas grills. Very family friendly.
The cottage which sleeps 6 has all the bells and whistles, is rented to members and last year it was rented out about 90 times at $90 a night. (it pays for itself). The "boys" will rent it for a weekend of fishing with their friends or just to spend a quiet weekend with a spouse.
I'm sure I could write more but that's a pretty complete sketch.
Cost? Dues are about the price of a large pizza with "the works" a week.
There is a "big" bump though. The membership owns the club and property and each has an equal share and vote. After a trial year, you are required to purchase 6 shares. When you leave the club (either above or below the ground
) you are refunded 5 shares. These shares can be purchased over a period of 5 years. There is a limit of 125 members.....right now there are about 110. Contact our membership chair for all the tiny details.
Membership is open to men and women. Most members live within100 miles (50 being about average) and some live very far away. We have members in WY, TX, FL, DC, MD etc. (they "summer" here.)
Pictures? It's gonna be hard to put my rod down and pic up my camera but as soon as I figure out how to post pics I'll get a few up.
Hope this didn't sound like a sales pitch but when someone asks "how much", part of the answer should include "what do you get".
