This month’s presentation was by Travis Perret, a previous member of the LBC. Travis and Casey Scanlon have a company, Trophy Bass Co. that makes several types of high end jigs. Travis gave a super pitch on the why and how of jig making, and donated several jigs and other items to the monthly drawing. Good presentation, and always a pleasure to see old friends.
