Two comments. I didn't know there was another Brandywine creek outside of
Delaware and question number two what is a Grass Pike? I cannot find it in
any reference book - Lee, et al., Peterson, Eddy, etc. Maybe I am confused
because I am used to the term Grass Pickerel. Is it the same thing?

My Dad called them Grass Pike and I still use his term. They appear to be
Grass Pickerel.

I think there are more than one creeks called Brandywine here in Indiana.
Delaware probably named their's first, though. :)

Talking about creek names, one of my favorites is "No Name Creek". Anyone
else know of some with unusual names?
