Presidents Lines – July 2016

jrondoni-75x75-2Hello AFC members. I hope everybody had a safe and happy Fourth of July! At a time each year when we celebrate our independence, what better way to celebrate than on a fishing trip. Now that the real summer is here, it is a great time to get out of town.

I recently went on a day trip to Knoll Lake. It was a good day, producing three good-sized rainbows. The temperature was 77 degrees when I left, making it very difficult not to turn right around and go back.

So if you have an opportunity for a trip, go for it. And keep an eye on Fishing Buddies on our website for someone to share the trip with.

Speaking of upcoming trips, the annual San Juan trip is coming up October 15- 19. Phil Koda has a Sportsman’s Warehouse $25 gift card that will be drawn and presented to the winner at the Liars Banquet. All you have to do to have a chance to win is register on Eventbrite. When you register, put down if you have or need a roommate, ride, or special accommodations. Even if you will not be staying at Abe’s, just let us know you will be going on the trip. Phil Koda and John Doss are working to make it a great trip, just like last year.

This month’s quote is from an unknown source but it could not be said any better:

“A woman who has never seen her husband fishing doesn’t know what a patient man she married!”

Stay cool everyone, and we will see you at the July 14 general meeting.
