HFF Auction 2019 update

Once again the  Hoosier Fly Fishers Annual fund raising auction was a big success.  Kernal Kevin did a wonderful job  of  entertaining us all with his quick wit and humor as well as getting top dollar for all the good stuff that members donated.  If you purchased or are missing a white laundry basket o’ stuff you can see Charlie at the HFF Picnic or surely it will show up at next years auction. Thanks to everyone that donated good stuff and bought stuff to help support Hoosier Fly Fishers. We would also like to thank the Bloomington American Legion Post #18 for their hospitality, great food and service.

The next HFF Meeting will be the annual picnic. Speaking of the annual picnic, May 4th 11:00 AM food at 12:3…the picnic this year will again be at Susie and Barry’s Lake Lemon home. As always, a hardy thanks to Barry and Susie for their generosity. The club will provide burgers and buns, chips and stuff like that, and soft drinks. If you want an “Appropriate Adult Beverage”, that is on you. Bring a side dish or dessert to share.   As is always the case, bring some fishing stuff. Who knows, Lake Lemon may indeed hold some of those elusive 1# Bluegill we hear so much about. For 1# bluegill Larry Barber recommends at least a 8wt rod.

If you missed this years annual auction here are a few pictures so you can see what you missed.

March 2019 HFF Meeting

The next meeting of the HFF will be March 19th at the Red Lobster. As usual we will meet at 6:00 PM for dinner and the program will begin at 7:00 PM. Our program this month will be a presentation by Dr. Ranjan Muthukrishnan on invasive aquatic species. I am sure this is an important and relevant topic for those of us who use and enjoy the outdoors. If time allows after the discussion, we will have a tying demonstration.

The April meeting will be at another new site, the Bloomington West Side American Legion. The program will be the annual auction. We ask the members to bring fishing/outdoor activities related items for the auction. Once again, we will have the pleasure of watching and listening to our own Kevin Montague show off his auctioneer skills.

The May meeting will be the annual Hoosier Fly Fishers picnic. Again, we thank the Clarke’s for their generous offer of their lakeside home for the picnic site. The tentative date is May 4th. Details and directions to follow. By all means bring a fly rod! I am including a picture of a typical Lake Lemon Bluegill.
See you at the Red Lobster on the 19th.
