The 7th Annual Freeze Up will be held on January 3rd, 2010 at the Mousam River in Kennebunk, ME. Fish Stalker Guide Service, maineflyfish.com and Eldredge Brothers Fly Shop host this event. The Freeze Up is a gathering of fly fisherfolk who get together to celebrate the new fishing year. Jim Bernstein and Kevin McKay will be there setting up. The coffee will be on and they'll be cooking breakfast sandwiches for anyone who wants one. Many of the other participants will be offering all types of delicious home cooked grub. There will be a casting competition and the lucky winner will bring home a Scott A2 fly Rod. The Mousam River is a stones throw away from the event pavilion and is full of brown trout and some fat rainbows. This event offers you the chance to catch your first trout of the new year. Bring your gear and some food to share or just show up and enjoy the festivities with this years tribe of participants.
