July 2021 HFF Meeting

Good afternoon, I hope we have all had a chance to do a little fishing before all this recent rain and flooding. As always, I am interested to see what this last flood has done to Clear Creek. It is always amazing how much power moving water has to change the landscape.

Our first casual summer meeting of the year will be JULY 20th at 6:00 PM at the Bloomington American Legion Post #18. We will be back to our usual third Tuesday schedule with this meeting.  As a reminder, the “normal” HFF meeting will start on the third Tuesday
in October. Given the events of the past year or so, managing to return anything back to a “normal” schedule is an interesting concept. As always, the executive committee is looking for ideas for programs and/or tying demos are always welcome.

I will be most interested in tales of your experience with fishing the Cicada hatch. Since I will only be 95 when it comes around, I am collecting fly pattern ideas and techniques so I will be more ready next time…

Looking forward to seeing you all on July 20th to share tall tales of the past year.  Again, we will be meeting at the America Legion Post # 18 at 1800 w. 3rd St. from 6:00 PM until 9:00 PM.

See you soon,


Annual HFF Club Members Picnic 2021

This year the HFF. picnic will be June 12th with the 13th as a rain date. Once again the Clarkes have offered their Lake Lemon lake side home for our picnic.

As always, we give the Clarkes a big shout out of thanks. We will get started at 12:00 and party until 4:00. Once again the club will provide hot dogs, buns, chips and soft drinks. Barry says the grill will be working and food ready about 12:30. Please bring a side dish and any adult beverages you may desire.

Also bring some fishing stuff…there are rumors of 1-pound bluegill in Lake Lemon.

If you are up to sharing, bring your Cicada fly to show off and catch a bunch.


Looking forward to seeing everyone in real life, email us if you have questions or need directions to the Clarks.
