Attention all fishing persons
All our AVFGA boats are registered for the year and are ready to go!!!
For the low cost of $35.00 per year you can purchase a Boat Pass at Gord's Corner Store, Route 110, West Milan and then use your pass during the fishing season to obtain a key to which ever boat you would like to use if it is available. You just need to present your pass at Gord's Corner store. There are 12 boats on various bodies of water in our region. AVFGA just supplies the boat. You will have to supply your own equipment for the boat such as PFDs, oars, gas motor if you have one that is 7 1/2 horsepower or less or an electric motor, fire extinguisher, signaling device, anchor, and any other pertinent equipment that you will need.
To put this in perspective, please consider that it would cost you $37.50 just to register a small aluminum boat for personal use if you bought one, and you would still need to find a way to transport and maintain the boat whenever you wanted to use it. Please take advantage of this deal and try out our boats for this coming season. We are confident you won't regret it. Our boats are well maintained and are stable and appropriate for the bodies of water they are on.
The Rules of Use for our fleet of boats are clearly explained below.
Don't forget to register your fish at Gord's for a chance to win a prize in our annual Fishing Contest. The Fishing Contest runs from March 1, 2021 to February 28, 2022. Fish must be caught in New Hampshire and weighed at Gord's store to qualify. Please have your fish in some type of protective wrapper or container in order to keep Gord's facilities clean.
Thank you for your continued support and the best of luck for this 2021 fishing season.
