Flying Fishermen Have Edge on Angling Time By HAROLD BRAND, ' Telegraph Outdoor Editor Fishing trips are usually shortened by time lost going and coming, but the anglers whose hob- biei also include piloting an airplane have an edge. Last Friday, several area fishermen who are pilots left Civic Memorial Airport in a Cessna 195 5-place plane at 6 a.m. and arrived in Antigo, Wis., 190 minutes later, a distance of about 450 miles as the crow flies. By car, the highway distance would come close to 600 miles, one of the men said. And furthermore It probably would have involved a whole day going and a whole day returning. Instead, only six hours traveling time was used for a three-day trip. Ivan Crouch, flight instructor at Civic Memorial, flew the plane there, and John Watson, part time flight instructor, flew the plane back. Marty Estes and Robert Scott, both student pilots, were passengets. The latter two men said that the trip was also most instructive for cross-country navigation. It was a wonderful experience, according to Scott. where we were picked up by a car from Chuck's Fishing Camp 28 miles away," Estes said. "We had our lines in the water by 11 a.m. The fish weren't ready for Scott and me, but Crouch and Watson scored numerous pan- sized fish as well as northerns, walleyes and crappie." The weatherman favored the group during their stay at the resort which is situated between Pickerel and Crane Lakes. While there, they met other aviation- fishermen enthusiasts from Greater Alton Area, including Goldie Zike of Cottage Hiljs and Frank Barszcz of Alton. The latter two flew there in a Cessna 180 own-| ed by Barszcz. j .The ground temperature on thej return trip was 80 degrees, but the men flew at 10,000 feet where the air was a cool 45 degrees. However, a closed airplane has much the same comfort as an automobile. The temperature averages a drop of about 3% degrees each 1,000 feet of height Estes said. The high level was attained to have the least headwinds. Ahhough no difficulty was ex- FISHERMEN'S PLANE The five-place Cessna 195 airplane used for an air*fishine. trip from Civic Memorial Airport to Pickerel, Wis,, last weekend by Ivan Crouch and John Wat- son, both flight instructors, with Marty Estes, and Bob Scott, both student pilots^ as passengers.—Staff Photo.

Jersey County Civil Defense Director, again assisted in the discussions which centered chiefly on increased membership plans and equipment requirements not furnished by Federal Civil Defense Administration.
