I just love the camaraderie amongst a group of fishermen. And there surely are as many fishing traditions as there are groups of fishermen. Here are some of the ones I’ve encountered here at the lodge.
There’s the t-shirts made for the occasion whether it’s a guys’ annual trip or a special one-time event...
There’s the home-made spoon competition.
The guidelines are this. You must make your spoon from something out of your kitchen. Prizes went to the best looking spoon and to the spoon that was used to catch the biggest fish. Frank & Uncle Whitney Corrick’s group presented their spoons here recently.
There are trophies. They come in many shapes and sizes. These are hand crafted for the Clay group that fishes together each year.
This year we were happy to host their trip!
