    Man, if I could get somebody to tend the kids I would show up just for the party. But 800 plus miles is just tad bit to far.

    Bove, You ready for the new and improved cat/griz showdown. Blake and me vs. you and andy. We will be judged on # of fish, #of beer, and and overall physical appearence.....because if you don't look good fishing, why are you even out there. Oh yeah I have the new G-5000 prototype simms/gucci hybrid waders and tie combo. :rofl:

    Clack VS. Hyde

    PS you will lose points for fishing glue eggs or beads and there is a minimum fly size of 3". so it has to be longer than that. Will be out there early more than likely. :Dptyd

    I have a previous engagement, but it's on the O.P. also, so I might stop by later in the week.

    Good I just tied up some cdc tube flies. They will meet the 3" minimum with the stinger hooks I put on them. They work rather well dead drifted.

    As for style, gucci has me beat.

    Well as of right now, I'm a probable go for the weekend. Have a few strings to try to sew up, but should be a go. I probably will just bank it. Was gonna tow the driftboat or bring the steelheader. But may just spend the weekend cooking and relaxing (yes, I'll bring all my grills with). So will be showing up with my truck/camper that Friday after work. Unless by some miracle I can get that Friday off (doubt it but we'll see).

    Wow, this is a big party.
    Ima'proly have to go fish it the week prior. . .

    There is also camping on the Lower Hoh Road, on the west side of the highway. Take that road west and head in a few miles, the campground is marked. In fact, the OP is heaven when it comes to campsites: they're everywhere.

    The camping on the lower Hoh is Cottonwoods. I personally never liked that campground. But I always had a love for the Oxbow and the ones up the upper Hoh road.
