“The best fishermen I know try not to make the same mistakes over and over again; instead they strive to make new and interesting mistakes and to remember what they learned from them.”

John Gierach


Learning to fish any water well requires recognizing the often subtle seasonal fluctuations and how the fish react to them.

What I am noticing this year is that many things seem to be a couple of weeks ahead of schedule.

Golf results for the week of 5/16/2012

Whitehawk Ranch Ladies Golf Club

The Whitehawk Ranch Ladies Golf Club started the 2012 season officially Tuesday, May 1.

The format was two best net balls per team. Team 1: Virginia Luhring, Della Miller, Diane Romig and Lynn Smith; Team 2: Ruth Marchetti (withdrew after nine so we had a phantom player), Laurie McKenzie, Cassie McNamara and Marcia Zeigler.

Team 1 beat Team 2 by a shot (with Team 2 protesting, of course!).

The highlights of the day: McNamara had three birdies — wow, we are impressed! Romig and Zeigler each had one birdie. Congrats, ladies!

This week we again had a small turnout May 8, as many of our ladies haven’t arrived back from their “winter digs.” The game was individual putting with Smith the winner with 31 putts. Zeigler was a close second with 32 putts, and Luhring came in third with 35 putts. Luhring and Romig each chalked up a birdie. The course is looking better by the day and we are all enjoying the spectacular weather — the golf is second to having fun!
