Annual Club Picnic 2015

Good afternoon,

The annual HFF picnic will be May 9th. Thanks to Barry and Susie Clarke for again hosting this fun filled event. The fun will start about
11:00.

As always, the club will provide burgers, brats, buns and chips. The job for the rest of us is to bring fantastic side dishes. And, need I remind you, bring some fishin’  stuff.  I am attaching some pics
from the  last couple of years to remind everyone how much fun we will have this year.

April Meeting

Spring is here and I think just the notion of better weather has everyone excited about fishing and the guest speaker for the month, Mike Exl from Wildcat Creek outfitters. Mike presented a great program about year-round fishing for smallmouth bass. Location, location, location seemed to be the key to success along with the correct presentation for the time of year.  If you missed the meeting, then you will not likely be catching lots of big smallmouth this year!  Mike also guides for smallmouth in central Indiana and knows where the best locations are for big smallies. If you fish with him, I’m sure he will clue you in on the best places and techniques for catching big fish. Check out Wildcat Creek Outfitters in Zionsville for more information.

Barry Clarke was the featured fly tier this month. As always Barry did a great job tying the H and L Variant, an old traditional dry fly.  Barry always ties more than one and shares them with the members. If you received one of Barry’s flies be sure to bring it to the Club Picnic next month and try your luck with one pound bluegills.

Since it is time to be fishing,  April was the last of the Official Club Meetings for the summer.  Official Club Meetings will resume in the fall. In case you get tired of fishing, information about Unofficial meetings will be made available soon. Next month will be the much anticipated HFF Club Picnic. Details will be coming soon.  Local water temperatures are rising fast and fish are moving and hungry, GO FISH!.
