    I'm calling bullshit on that, too!! you're just recognizing some limitations, just like me.

    Okay, Neo, you're aback. Tell us what your final itinerary was, and how you did.

    A last minute work emergency meant I couldn't do the trip -- ended up staying here and fishing a ton: SF Snoqualmie and a couple of tribs up by Hwy 2. Caught the largest fish I've ever caught on a fly (not that that's a very high bar) an 18 inch or so rainbow on the Miller that put up a hell of a fight.

    Thank you all for the suggestions -- I hope to make that trip someday soon ...

    Yeah -- I could not believe it. Was fishing a 5 wt and nothing else was putting much of a bend in the rod, was quite shocked when this one took off after being hooked.

    Good work on the local rivers. Now you have lots of ideas for a future trip. Maybe you'll be able to take a little more time when you do head out.
