How do you place an absentee bid to the CFFCM Arts of the Angler Auction? Glad you asked!
Auction items, with selected photos, will be listed on our Facebook Fan page – http://www.facebook.com/cffcm. Listing and photos will be updated regularly up until November 5th.
When you see something you would like to bid on, send us an email to flyfish@catskill.net or call 845-4394810 and we will send you the Absentee Bid Form.
Submitted bids will be treated as live bids by proxy bidder in the strictest of confidence. All absentee bids will begin with the second bid and advance accordingly to the highest advacnded bid or until the maximum bid is met. Should an opposing bidder get the last advanced bid meeting the maximum submitted bid, an advanced bid will be placed on behalf of the absentee bidder. (e.g. if you maximum bis is $100 and your opposing bidder has it, we will bid on your behalf to the next increment.) In the event an item does not meet a reserve price, the last highest bidder will have the first right of refusal. Absentee bidders with the last highest bid will be contacted Monday following the auction.

Thank you! This is a great team effort by our staff and volunteers. Thank you for the posts, other then myself you are the first to post on our blog. I now know why you did not see your comments. Once you write them, I have to go in and approve them before they are posted. The new website is a learning curve for me. Let me know what you think. Thanks for coming to the show and supporting the CFFCM.

The CFFCM hosted an amazing trip to the Flint Rainbow Club. If you missed it this year, make sure you make plans for next year! Our hosts, Pat Hughes and Park Smith (both Flint Rainbow and CFFCM members) treated our six guests to a wonderful few days of great food, great stories and great fishing! Our Facebook page has an album of the photos from the trip. Make sure you check our newsletter for the next time we will head to Michigan, you won’t want to miss it!

Dear friends – I just moved to Connecticut and learned of your show in Danbury. While I will probably not make the show this year I would like to visit your center, however there is not address on the Home Page of this web site… It would be helpful to have all your contact info on the home page.



ErinPhelan December 2, 2013 at 4:59 pm

Hi Mike,
Welcome to the area. The center is located at 1031 Old Route 17 in Livingston Manor NY. The address is on our contact page.
Looking forward to seeing you at the Center.

Hey, its March, 2014 with the worst winter almost in our backcast. Is anyone else excited about Opening Day. “To celebrate Opening Day on the Beaverkill is a little like observing Christmas in Bethlehem.”, or so wrote Red Smith. But for me, I want to be at FIRST CAST at CFFC&M on April 5th. And if it is chilly, there is always Agnes’ home made soup and a very good chance there will be a hatch, even if its just cookies. An early “safe season” to all.


Andy Boyar April 9, 2014 at 5:34 pm

First Cast Ceremony was nothing but “First Class”. Well done, CFFCM!


ErinPhelan September 17, 2013 at 8:56 pm

I am not sure, I will have to get back to you on that.
