Within another year or
so, virtually all our members also had email access, so the
bulletins were no longer being slow-mailed out, but sent via
e.mail. In our
earlier years the bulletin was sent out more or less periodically,
but in the last few years we have made every effort to produce
them monthly. It was not always easy to have enough information to write
about that would be of interest to our members and often I would
have to prod them for their fishing results and so on in order to
have something that folks would enjoy reading.
It occurred to me
recently that it would be interesting to look back after the
club’s fortunes, good and bad, over the years by perusing all
the back issues of The Reel Thing.
I discovered that there actually is a wealth of information
on a wide variety of subjects, not only fishing and casting that
others would probably enjoy as well, so we are making the attempt
to compile and correlate the bulletins in chronological order so
anyone else wishing to review the club’s history can peruse them
at their leisure.
actuality, the bulletins have had our club logo (as seen above) in
place since we began producing them on the computer, but they and
the parting greetings from the author, yours truly, have been
eliminated in this summary to make for a more interesting read.
There have also been a variety of fonts and font sizes used
over the years, but we will attempt to edit the collection
accordingly into a consistent format.
issues that we were able to re-create so far are displayed on this
page. Select the issue that you wish to read and click on
the link for that month. ENJOY!
