This is a catch and release trip with photos taken to support any fish stories. If you are new to fly fishing, Brian can provide some basic gear for the day, along with ‘Non-professional’ instruction to get you started. You will be responsible for obtaining a valid Washington State fishing license and weather appropriate clothing; Brian will take care of everything else, including an exclusive picnic lunch provided compliments of Applewood. Fishing season on the Lewis runs from the first Saturday in June through the last day of October, and this trip can be scheduled on any mutually acceptable day during the 2010 or 2011 season.

Camas Iron Chef was a new fundraiser for CEF in 2010. We challenged celebrity chefs, Steve Marshall and Jerry Moss, together with their professional chefs, Peter Echeverio and Jason Morton, to prepare three dishes in one hour using secret ingredients of ginger and duck. Hosted by Around the Table, this event mirrors the popular television show with wonderful appetizers and beverages available to the viewing audience. The entertainment value at this sold-out event was truly priceless. The judges had a difficult time finding a winner that night, but CEF and the kids of Camas schools were the clear winners. Turn you friends green with envy by claiming your position on one of these two prestigious teams by being the winning bidder for Camas Iron Chef 2011 Celebrity Chef.
Thank you, Around the Table and CEF
