NFLCC 2018 Club Magazine Winter Issue
With the forthcoming NFLCC 2018 Club Magazine Winter Issue and holiday I thought it appropriate;
Twas the Night Before the Winter Issue
Twas the Night Before the Winter Issue,
And All through the House,
In This the winter issue Dorr, Martin & Hecht Show us some splendid Creek Chub Fly Rod Lures, including a Mouse,
The Stockings were Hung by the Chimney with Care,
With Hopes that more of Dudley’s wonderful cover art, soon would be there.
The members were a nestled, all snug in their beds,
Knowing visions of Chance’s folk art lures, would soon fill their heads.
Momma in her kerchief and I in my Cap, Had just opened a bottle of Single Malt to enjoy with John Etchison’s line art, night cap.
When out on the lawn their rose such a clatter,
While the thought of Gary Smith’s article on Herter’s, all that did matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash, Blinded by the Light of Thomas’s Lemax and their Flash!
The moon on the breast of the new fallen snow,
Until reading Bucha’s & Tustison article on Creek Chub Wigglers, little I did know.
When what to my wandering eyes should appear, in the center of the Mag a North Channel in the Box, Appear!
With a little old driver so lively and quick,
Did Dudley’s letter from the editor, read really quick!
More rapid than eagles his courses they came,
My excited anticipation for Pigeon Forge and Milwaukee
On Ward on Saalfrank, on Ireton & Martin, on Ocharzak, Ozimkowski, Jones & Collen, Gibson & Chisman,
To the top of the porch to the Top of the wall,
Stu Strange proclaimed, Thank you to our Membership, & Merry Christmas to All!!
