John and Harry, Some new tricks

Fourth of July is when you might watch a parade, burn a burger, eat too much, maybe drink an extra beer with some friends. Yup, sounds about right.  What does our own John Macdairmid do, he is an entry in the Ashland parade.  He mounts a hoop in the sunroof of his vehicle, then he hitches up his drift boat, and gets Harry Foster to drive.  In the parade he stands in the boat and casts through the hoop while traveling down the street with Harry driving.  John Steinbeck probably couldn't have conjured up that image.

Roadside cleanup opportunity

We are scheduled for the Hwy. 62 clean-up on Saturday, July 8th. 

Please meet at 9:00 am at the McDonalds on Highway 62 just south of Antelope Road on the West side of the highway.

This will likely be a fairly short session as things are looking really good out there.  More participants will make it an even shorter session.

Any questions, please call Greg Hart  530-643-3235

Diamond Lake Outing

Steve Day and Keith Hardcastle organized the June outing to Diamond Lake in such a way that one couldn't help wondering how they did it all.  Saturday morning started with Breakfast Burritos coming forth from the "Cocina de Keith", at the south ramp.  Then a group picture and off to the fishing.  After a tiring day of fishing, we all came together at the Steve and Keith campsite for a good old fashioned pot luck.  Chef Day was all over the grill calling out names and words like medium rare all the while manufacturing a cloud of smoke to match the event.  Plenty of libations with the banter and smiles to match.  Did we have a good time?  What do you think?  Good job Steve and Keith!

You have been there and you love it or you gotta go!

Would you believe a Midge hatch?

The reel appears to be okay.

Saturday night

Oh yes, we did fish.

Casting on the grass, summer of 2017

Our casting classes are held from 6:00-7:00 every Monday (except July 3rd) at the Hedrick Middle School on East Jackson in Medford.  Last session will be July 24th. 

A broad range of casters will be accommodated. Some accomplished casters will join the celebration of casting to try out new rods, polish up the casting stroke or seek help with a particular aspect of their casting.  Meanwhile we have had several beginners and near beginners start the casting discovery path with us.  We have loaner rods for beginners.  We will always accommodate beginners and look forward to working with them every session.  This year we are adding some specific lessons for those with an accomplished cast. Come out and join us.  John MacDiramid CCI
