    Got to change the rules. 5" minimum and tight line only. T-14 is encouraged, lots and lots of T-14. Bove, CDC? you and rene harrop can go hang out on the henry's fork together and skip and hold hands. :rofl:

    That does it! I'm gonna show up, if only for a day, not only with my 8 wt, but also my 6 wt and my 4 wt, and if I'm not trailering my mini-drifter, then I'll be car-topping my squanoe. For when the rivers get dangerously booked with driftboats full of wildass partying wff members, I will attempt to escape the madness and go fish small flies for trout in one of the year round lakes up there!:cool:

    There will be no skipping and holding hands. Drink all you want, with 30 people already going it will be good to have at least half puking up their spleen at day break. I will have fished several runs. Monday thru Friday, 16 hours of fishing on five hours of sleep a night. I fish hard and lose 8 to 12 flies a day. I need four or five dozen flies. This aint gonna be a cub scout meeting. I’m a bank monkey at heart, but I will bring my toon or float with anyone that offers. All I’d have to offer are flies, a big fat sandwich and experience. In the spirit of the fishing buddy program, I will spend time tying flies on the leaders of new guys. Once again demonstrating that we at Washington fly fishing are not elitist holes that don’t give a crap about the new guys. However, I would prefer to fish hard with other knowledgeable brothers, so my time for showing the new guys the ropes will be limited. I’m fishing my ass off. I’m not bringing a grill. Just sandwiches and coffee and water.

    No advance scouting of rapids allowed. Got to give SAR something to do, and maybe thin out the pressure on select fly water at the same time. There ought to be a special prize for the angler who catches and does not release a WFF carcass that comes floating down the river.

    Hmmmmm. I'll be there the previous Saturday-Monday. May drop by on Monday and say hello. Maybe even come back out the following weekend. Sounds like a blast.

    If there is room for a couple more, my buddy and I would like to go. He's not a FF angler yet but I'm sure you guys will change that!

    This is going to be better then those Pram burnings I hope.

    I don't know. I've never been to one of them. We burn a lot of firewood, dug fur, propane. That sort of thing.

    Rick,

    You clearly don't understand. There is no competition in the fishing. You can compete all you want at the keg drinking however. It's encouraged in fact. Commode huggin' drunks is the whole idea.

    I might just have to show up and show the young guys how to drink. I've been mulling this around in my brain for a few days now.

    How much does a three day out of state license cost. But with me driving over 800 miles just to get there why should I worry about a cheap thing like that.

    But being that I'll be 73 at the time it might just slip my mind and forget about it. I'm almost senile now.

    Jim
