Frank Went Fishing Yesterday Evening ...
down at the creek that runs down behind the Dudley domicile. He took his brand new South Fork Rod Company "Classic" seven and one half foot four weight fly rod out for the first time. He said it was the best fly rod he has ever casted. He walked and waded a pool above a low water dam and managed to catch three sunfish. The water was clear and runs over a limestone bottom. He saw a few small bass but the water was so clear he thinks they saw him and backed off as they were checking out the popper and dropper fly he was offering. Frank has not fished this section of the creek in some time. He normally fishes a deep hole of water two or three miles down stream or the last couple of hundred yards of the creek a few miles down stream from there where the creek empties into the river. Dudley father used to fish this creek as a young teenager before WWII. The creek is in danger of being destroyed from the placement of a sewage treatment plant several miles upstream from the neighborhood where Dudley lives. The people that live along the creek are trying to stop the project but it remains to be seen what will happen. If this beautiful clear running creek is polluted with the outflow from a raw sewage treatment plant, it will be a damn shame.
