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,


Annual HFF Picnic 2023

It is time for the annual HFF picnic. This year it will be on June 3rd. And again, Susie and Barry Clarke have generously offered to host us at their Lake Lemon home. We will get started at 11:00ish and eat about 12:30. As always, the club will provide burgers, hot dogs, buns, chip sand some drinks. If you wish an “appropriate adult beverage” that is up to you. You all will bring your typical outstanding side dishes. So that we will have enough burgers and dogs. please let Barry know if you are planning on joining us for the fun…

Here is a thought…The Clarke’s house is at Lake Lemon…Lakes have water and water has fish and we catch fish…if only there was  a good Bluegill fly  for Lake Lemon…

Looking forward to seeing everyone on June 3rd for yet another fun filled picnic and perhaps even a few 1 lb. Bluegill to brag about.  Bring a rod and stuff………….Tim
