Second Official Non Official Third Tuesday Meeting

June 18th is in fact the third Tuesday of the month and the date for
our second Official Non-Official Summer Meeting of 2013. As usual, we will unofficially meet at the Colorado Steakhouse at 6:00ish.

I like to consider each and any fishing trip a trip of a lifetime. Kinda like finding the world in a grain of sand—keep looking, you may find the world or just a really a neat grain of sand. But, at least you were looking for something special. Can’t find it if you don’t look. However, this does not apply to car keys. It may be Clear Creek (which I can afford) or the Amazon (which I can’t afford) but the promise of a special moment is always present. The fish should be there, this should be the fly and I need to make this cast. It was, it is, and you did, fish on… no matter how big or small, this is a special moment. Better yet, give your buddy the shot or occasionally offer to sit in the back of the boat.

So come and share tales of your adventures so far this summer over burgers and appropriate adult beverages. See you all at the Colorado Steakhouse on Tuesday the 18th.


First Unofficial Meeting of Summer

We officially had our first unofficial meeting of the summer at the
Colorado Steakhouse last evening. Lots of fun, $2.00 draft beers, good
food and a few faces we haven’t seen for a while. Save June 18th for
the next official unofficial meeting, same place, same time. That would
be 6:00ish at the Colorado Steakhouse.

A question came up concerning wading at Brookville. According to the
Central Indiana Trout Unlimited, following is recommended.
• Below 4 feet- Ideal
• 4-4.5 feet- Mediocre
• 4.5 feet- Challenging
Above 5 feet- Dangerous and unwadeable
You can find the current water level at Brookville on our website. For
example, at 10:45 this morning the water level was 3.87 ft. Check this
before your go.

Speaking of the website, we are always looking for reports on your
fishing adventures and pictures of your catch, that is if you manage to
actually catch anything. Sometimes we might think our adventures are to
small and local to matter, but remember what the good doctor says,
“A person is a person no matter how small.”

For those who have moved beyond Dr. Seuss,there is always William Blake.
“To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.”

Personally, I recommend both. No, I did not personally know Mr. Blake,
he is/was at least 10 years older than I am.
