I drove up and back to Higgins Lake, and had a great Session One of the lake classes. We are a diverse group of 15, 6 gals, 9 guys, with all different backgrounds and interests. We had to try and figure out who everyone was, and the most popular water activity was fly-fishing and kayaking.
I met a participant by chance at Skips on Friday night, (I got a guy in Kalamazoo, he looks like Robert Redford, is 5 years younger than me but thinks I am younger than him, WOW!) an IT specialist who left his big job with a drug company to become a municipal wastewater manager because of his concern for these 100 ft. deep abandoned/shut down wells.
Another participant is a gravel pit owner (wants to turn a 12 acre gravel pit into a swimming lake) who is a former trustee, and get this ran for Drain Commissioner against the Commish we met, now that is interesting.
There are two guys from Trout Unlimited, the biologist from our BOS, a professor and an Entomologist, an Attorney fish guide, a Macroinvertabate (sp) collector, a water quality chemist and a few others. I have already staked my claim as official bad girl as I could not stay away during the 1-1/2 hour Michigan Water Withdrawl presentation - I woke up Sat. morning unable to hear out of my ears and totally congested. I know now that I have an allergy to Pine Pollen in the worst way. The Linda sitting next to me kept pulling my hair and poking me, but I couldn't stay awake. She did assure me that I didn't snore.
I am excited about the 4 night, 3 days stay at Kellogg Biological station, they said bring hip waders and it is a dormitory situation.....just like Rodney Dangerfield, I'm going back to school!

Bib Brando from PB got 72 blue gill here Saturday, and a bass I think, they all made it alive. I hope he gets more!
I subscribe too, but tried and failed at the fish logo.

Good for you Lynda. Make as many contacts and network as much as you can as you never know when they will come in handy.
If pigs could fly bacon would be harder to come by and there would be a lot of damaged trees.
