Beating the drum....

It just occurred to me that this weekend is opening day of boating season. Unless it's crappy out there will be dock traffic. I'm up for another venue, or we can resume the discussion in August or so and pick a date in September/October that fits most of us.
John, no hard work involved, but thank you.

No problem.
I just put a tickler on my calendar to re-start this conversation in the last week of August. Purely as a dart throw, I'm penciling September 20 for a get together, but that's flexible. I notice also that this is almost exactly one year from the Fiberglass Gathering Gary Knowels held last year (a great event IMO). Since group size is not a problem we could make it a Grass & Glass gathering if you like.
We'll talk later. Have a great Summer.
Go fish.

Fall would be a better choice for me. My rod quiver is pretty slim right now and by fall I hope to have a couple of slots filled. I am not far from gluing up a Payne 198 7'6" 5wt 3 piece and a Leonard 50D 8' 5wt 3piece. Both of these are sweet casting rods that I would like to share with the group.

At the pace I've been going lately finding old but good bamboo to fix and fish and admire, I'll need a trailer to bring 'em all. Hope you got room. Geez, that slope is sure slippery once you get going. :) Ron

Bill, dental floss, spey rods and dapping, if you can get up wind of the lake. :) Can be tough on Lk.Wa.
Ron, I'd give a nickle just for the knowledge of what to look for in older decent blue collar bamboo. I know there's a lot of junk out there. Look forward to seeing your stable.

Oh, and tomorrow's prediction is now up to 12mph. Golf, maybe on TV.

I knew I would miss the originally scheduled date since we were on vacation that weekend. I'll certainly join if the next scheduled date doesn't conflict, but I am headed to Fernie, B.C. Sept. 19 for a week. And then another week later on to the Skeena region.

David, my know-how is worth maybe a nickle, maybe a little less. But happy to share and mis-guide you any time! Ron

Several of us here will be away on an annual fishing trip and bamboofest the week following Labor Day. Hope this doesn't interfere with scheduling as I'd like to not miss either event.
