"Go Fishing Day" - June 18
Gone Fishing
     June 18th, annual Go Fishing Day.  What a perfect day to have here in the Northwest!  Grab your pole, head out to the bank or hop in the boat, cast the line, and relax for a few hours... Or all day!  Just don't come home empty handed; all that work and no dinner makes for a rough ending to a great holiday. 
A Little Humor...
Lawyer Laughs
     "Q: What's the difference between a catfish and a lawyer?"
     "A: One's a low-life bottom-feeding scum sucker; the other
           is a fish."

-Lawyers, Andrews McMeel Publishing, LLC, 2007

Annual Clarke Fishing Trip
     Every year during the week of June 15th, Michael Clarke and all of the Clarke boys--his father, grandfather, uncles, and cousins all join together for an annual fishing trip.  The tradition began in 2000, making this their 16th consecutive outing!  Though the destination changes yearly, trout and Mackinaw (which are only found in some lakes), are always the catch.  As the tradition continues, Michael looks forward to the day his son is old enough to come along.
     "A couple years ago, my dad and I were fishing on Gold Lake, CA and we thought we snagged bottom with our lure.  We fought with the bottom for 15 minutes until we realized the wind had taken us to the middle of the lake, and away from shallow water.  For the next 15 minutes, we fought the biggest Mackinaw we had ever seen, on 4 pound test line.  The fish turned out to be 32 inches long, which is certainly not the biggest Mackinaw, but the biggest we’ve seen."
- Michael Clarke
