CURRENTS – August/September 2019

The 40th annual Austin Chapter Banquet is officially in the record books. Because of your generosity, we were able to top the $1.2 million revenue number again this year. We had over 1700 people in attendance, the entertainment was outstanding and it took us all of about 28 minutes to sell 175 Yeti Coolers. To our extensive list of sponsors and generous patrons, thank you for all that you did to help us accomplish this monumental task!

Please visit us at to see a list of all the sponsors who helped make this happen, as space constraints don’t allow us to acknowledge all of them in this letter. From the who’s who in the Austin culinary world to corporate powerhouses in the Austin business scene, we have the best group of sponsors in the state.

Congratulations to Brian Murphy who won the SCB S22 by Shallow Sport! And congratulations to all of the winners from our stellar live auction and our vast array of other stand-alone games.  We truly couldn’t do this event without all of you and cannot wait to see you again next year.

Check out our website at for upcoming Anglers’ Night Out (ANO) dates. ANOs are held at 6 p.m. at Abel’s on the Lake, which is located at 3825 Lake Austin Blvd., Austin, TX 78703.

Get out there and go fishing this summer. We look forward to seeing all of you at the next ANO soon!
