July 10, 1998|By Peg Adamarczyk | Peg Adamarczyk,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

WHILE THIS is prime vacation season, not everyone has abandoned Pasadena.

The Pasadena Sportfishing Group will have its monthly meeting at 7: 30 p.m. Monday at the Orchard Beach fire hall on Solley Road.

Bill Burton, Maryland Gazette outdoors columnist, will share tips and techniques for catching fish in the upper Chesapeake Bay.

Burton "is very popular and knows the hot spots for fishing," said club spokesman Dave Nolan.

Also, "the knife man" from B&B Knives will be there to sharpen knives in front of the fire hall. "The cost is reasonable, and when he's done you can filet a fishing line," Nolan said.

There will be an auction after the meeting. Members can bring up to five new or used fishing or boating items to be auctioned.

Members of the Orchard Beach Volunteer Fire Company will sell food and other refreshments starting at 5: 30 p.m. Proceeds benefit fire company projects.
