removed_by_request We used to beat up one Richards when I played for Marian.

Its a long way from JV H.S. to varsity College.

pmflyfisher Richards has never played Lincoln Way they are twice the size of our enrollment in the highest IL class - 8A. We never will play them but we would if we could. We regularly played larger schools like Bolingbrook, Sandburg, Thornton, Thornwood, Hubbard, Dunbar, Simeon etc. up until six years ago in pre -conference play when they reorganized the SICA conferences. Richards always was competitive and most times beat those teams.

Richards is in 6a under the new 8 class IL HS system.

Providence is a big rival if we could recruit like they do from a large geographical area and have 60 kids varsity instead of 30-40 we could play with them. In last four years we are 2 and 2 in state playoffs with catholic schools in the state playoffs. Have beaten Carmel and Marion Catholic lost to Providence twice. Catholic schools and many other public schools will not play us in a pre-conference early season game. They don't want to risk a loss.

Below is the link to the Richards football site. Some impressive tradition and stats. The varsity is going to be good again this year with their DIV 1 QB and tail back. If you look at the freshman team page, in the team picture my son (Ross Eckert) is in the 3rd row from the bottom, 4th player in from the left side of the picture.

Football camp starts in June, can't wait !

20 Pound Brown???

REALITY CHECK !!!! Well, yes, there are a few. But remember - fishing is a game of chance! There is not one hiding behind every rock. Just remember - it took me over 60 years of fishing to get one!

(Oh, yeah, another requirement .... you also have to be able to LAND 'em, too!)

Yeah, there are a lot of big browns in Lake O., and they are fun to catch during the trib runs. But 20 lb trout are the exception, not the rule. The fishing is great, but he was "the fish of a lifetime!" At least for me.

removed_by_request Ever hear of Lincoln-Way or Providence?

Find an excuse to go not one not to.

pmflyfisher My sons HS sophmore football schedule is over by the end of October. However, they always move up 10-15 sophmore players to the varsity for the IL state playoffs. Richards HS is on 17 year streak of making the IL play offs, might be the longest in the state since Sandburg did not make it last year. So his season could be extended into November if he gets moved up to varsity. Even if he does the games are on Friday or Saturdays and I can get work around it.

If a 20 lb NY trib brown is waiting for my I can find a way to get there believe me.

Greg Pavlov Juro, the Catt varies considerably, of course,
but figure that most spots you'd fish would
be betw 40 and 100 feet wide.

removed_by_request You can swing by after the Canadian Clave, that is a must attend. Simon being there is reason enough to go.

Isn't that around HS football time???

I we have discussed off line I have penciled that date in on my calendar. I will bring my tent, canoe, and one of the Siberians for protection. Its on the 2003 big trip list.

Have a great holiday weekend.

P.S. I have never been to that western part of NYS, but have been to all other parts. Many people do not understand what a great scenic state NY is, until they visit its many parts. As they say
"I love New York".

juro Greg -

How wide is the Catt. river (feet)? I am thinking of visiting that area this fall.

I've used a Sage 6126 there: it's a pretty good fit.

Re the Seneca lands, they're not spectacular scenery
but you can walk a good way along the river and not
see a single building.

Steelies are mixed in, and fun, but......

there's a lot to be said for a 20 lb.+ brown ..... and caught on a cheap 6 wt. St. Croix rod! :hehe: :hehe:

Memories and "out of state" tags

I have seen license plates from Wyoming, Montana, Alaska, California, and just about every state east of the Mississippi there. Secret? Hardly. Carl Coleman and his ilk have BLOWN it. Some of us just have the patience for cold weather, when the "tourists" leave.....

BTW, many times I have met young "guides" of his - nice guys, going to college for a better life, guiding part time, - and willing to share hot spots, good flies, and tips. Really a good fishing experience - if you avoid the crowds. A guy from Colorado that I met and teamed up with takes THREE WEEKS' VACATION there - he says they are the biggest trophy trout he has ever seen!
