April 2024 HFF Meeting

Kernal Kevin
Kernal Kevin working his magic.

The annual HFF auction is set for this coming meeting, April 16. This will be a good opportunity to invest the massive tax refund you got yesterday! Once again we will have the fun filled evening of the annual HFF auction. And, again, we will be privileged to have Kernal Kevin and his dulcet voice as the auctioneer. So round up all those nifty outdoor activity items you were sure you really needed and send them to a new home. It may also be a good idea to plan a few new fly patterns to investigate as there will be some real feather bargains to be had…one never has enough feathers. Feel free to share this event with anyone you know who may be interested.

May 11th will be the annual HFF picnic. Once again the Clarks generously offered their home on Lake Lemon for the picnic. We will get started about 11:00 AM and plan to eat about 12:00 noon.  The club will provide burgers and hot dogs, buns, chips and soft drinks. Adult beverages are up to you. Please bring a side dish or desert. The fishing there is always fun and some of us even catch a few fish. 

More to follow soon…

Stay dry,


March 2024 HFF Meeting

The next meeting of the Hoosier Fly Fishers will be March 19th.  As always, we will meet at the American Legion on 3rd street. Dinner at 6:00 and th program will start at 7:00.

There are interesting and fun filled events coming up in the near future.  Coming events are:

The April 16th meeting will be the Annual Auction. Once again we are lucky to have Kernal Kevin and his dulcet tones calling the auction. So round up some wonderful outdoor related items to give Kevin something to work with. This will be a good chance to “pass on” some of that stuff you couldn’t do without and replace it with some things you really need. Bring good stuff to sell and a few bucks to spend. It is always a great time.

The thing you should make note of is that the annual picnic will be May 11th. Once again the Clarkes have offered their home on Lake Lemon. We will get started about 11:00. More details to follow…great fun to look forward to food, fishing, and fellowship.

And now the March meeting… The program will be Kyle Swafford talking about legal access to waters in Indiana. This came up during a discussion   about what are navigable waters and where we can and cannot wade and fish. Kyle is researching with current Indiana laws on such matters. This will be informative. 

Also, Kevin Montague will be running us through the best ways to get our fishing stuff in working order so we can fish all these places we will know are legal. We should be all set with clean rods and reels and all the neat stuff we bought at the auction. 

Jasper Osmon will be doing the tying demo for March. I am not sure which pattern he will be tying but am sure that all the materials he will be using will come from JLWaters. I a looking forward to watching Jasper tie and we will have a new fly pattern to fish on the clean rods in the legal waters. This certainly looks like a fun filled and informative meeting.

Looking forward to see you all at the Legion on the 19th. Dinner at 6:00 and the program at 7:00.

Stay warm or cool or dry whatever weather Indiana treats us with this”spring”

See you then and there,
