Above is the group of golfing buddies that won Grace Church Millbrook’s 15th annual golf tournament fundraiser at the Quaker Hill Country Club in Pawling on Monday, Aug. 15. The event was a way to both raise critical dollars in support of the church’s many programs and also a way to celebrate those who serve the church with the local community. Two honorees were awarded at the gala dinner held later that evening (for full story and another photo, see Grace Church honors those who serve at annual gala). PHOTO BY PAM FREEMAN

Grace Church Millbrook deems 15th Annual Golf Outing a hit

PAWLING — The 15th Annual Grace Episcopal Church  Golf and Dinner Benefit was held at the Quaker  Hill Country Club in Pawling on Monday, Aug. 15,  and there couldn’t have been better weather. The club is nestled among heavily forested properties, and the views enjoyed from the golf course are extraordinary.

Fishing for panfish in the grim mid-summer

In case you haven’t noticed, we’re having a drought.

Take a look at your nearest babbling brook. Pretty low, isn’t it?

Or check out the Housatonic River. Better yet, get in it without waders. It’s bathtub warm.

At least Mother Nature has cheesed it with the super-hot weather.

Introducing Mongo: Fixed line meets big fish

The last few years I have spent more and more time using the telescoping, fixed line, no-reel fly rods that come under the umbrella term “Tenkara.”

Devotees spend hours arguing the nuances and nomenclature for different kinds of fixed line rods, and since few of them speak Japanese I suspect they are still missing something.
