- June 25: Long Draw Mitigation Meeting
Dave Piske was delegated the responsibility for coordination. Expected attendees include: David Nickum, Dave Piske, Ken Eis, Paul Fromme, and Mark Coleman.
Note of the Day:
In the last pool of Ettrick, the water flowed by a steep bank, and, if you cast almost on to the further side, you were perfectly safe to get fish, even when the river was very low. The flies used, three on a cast, were small and dusky, hare’s ear and woodcock wing, black palmers, or, as Stoddart sings,
Wee dour looking hulks are the thing,
Mouse body and laverock wing.
