On Wednesday, May 8, I joined Amy Milne and Project Healing Waters at
Suson Park with Steve Garnett, Mel Bagley and Chick Stokes to help the
veterans at the VA Med Center with a little fishing getaway (and for
many just some fresh air). Mel and his vet caught several bluegill, and
one with a snake hanging on. I was able to coax ten bluegill in for my
vet. I was very pleased at the response we got for this event. The
club’s effort was appreciated.
May’s Montauk outing was good, although we could have had better attendance. Friday fished better than Saturday, and instead of catering by Olig’s BBQ, we opted for a visit to their restaurant. Their upstairs room was just right for the size of our group.
Giving Steve Antonic and Al Bourisaw a collective pat on the back for an excellent presentation on fishing the White River at May’s Member Meeting. The handout was an excellent reference for our September outing, which should be a lot of fun!
Our next meeting is at Tilles Park for our annual Members BBQ, which includes all the casting instruction at the pond that you can handle.
Tight loops and a quick prayer for better stream levels! See you on the water!

Come join your fellow club members for an evening of casts, laughs, and barbeque. The annual barbeque is always a great time, and a good chance to learn some new tweaks or tips on your casts. It’s also a good opportunity to try out other members’ rods, if you’re looking for something new in the future to cast.
Hope to see you there!
