    My flies were wet.But my dries kept sinking and my wets were floating. I even put on a humpy and it still sank. And for tying on flies,Have you ever seen me up close trying to tie on a fly. My hands shake so bad that I have to put them in my lap to keep them still and then I use the smallest flies and can't get the leader thru the eye with all that shaking going on. If it wasn't so funny I'd be crying about it. That's what takes me so long to get a fly on my line. But I don't quit. I keep at it until I get it on and some times it takes a while..

    I had a great time. It was Marc and I's first trip with the group. Good introduction. A funny ass group of people. A little bummed I dumped my ass in the back of the car so early. A little bit of Bart's Jim Beam and what I think was Bhudda's stuff put me under pretty good.

    Much thanks to Tight Line for the ride up to the lake for night fishing. Good guy, second only to Roper who didn't beat me over the head with his rod tube after I delivered only 75% back to him. I deserved a lickin'

    Like jabseattle, Marc and I should be more ready to talk shit with the rest on the next trip.

    As with Mulligan, I had a great time with all you characters. Very welcoming group. It was my first time at Dry Falls since my uncle first took me flyfishing there in a canoe when i was 12 so it was nice to see it again. Looking forward to the next outting. If any of you guys are looking for a fishing partner on the Yak anytime I go to school at CWU so let me know. Like Mulligan said, I'm sure we'll be more apt to BSing next time around.

    hahaha yeah nice title... stop telling everyone my million dollar idea!

    Dry falls was worth the haul over, always nice to see the old familiar faces as well as meeting some new ones.

    My legs are still sore from this trip, kicking around that lake from dawn till dark a couple days in a row, as well as taking an excursion out into the desert with sparse and alpinetrout on sunday which included a desert hike, 20 year old ladders down cliffs, and hauling back water soaked waders, good times for sure.

    Some of the cooler things...

    - Watching Jabs dial in that lake and make it his bitch.
    - Laughing at the guy with the drag set to 0
    - Listening to some of sparses stories
    - Watching the irishman and jim dissing on each other.
    - Catching a brown as big as my arm
    - Fishing with roper
    - Seeing brians injured baitfish retrieve
    - Handline'n a tiger trout


    Fun stuff as usual... can't wait till the highland fling. Where the lakes don't close at ten, and there aren't 80 people on the lakes at one time.

    Yup, just go straight thru those gates you had to take a left at, when the road turned to gravel, to head to dry falls. hey thanks for the heads up on the hatch at RFC. did you guys end up fishing anymore after that. we stayed awhile, but Jess was having trouble with the wind knots and such. it takes a setting like that, with reeds and marshy stuff, bushes etc. and you will never let that backcast drop again! she had fun seeing all the bows so close up. i tried to explain to her the "Circus show" so to speak that everyone says about the place, i like it, i dont shun the Ford like alot of folks as i still get a tickle walking up to the first section and just watching the fish cruise by. saw lots of snakes- are they garder snakes?

    We headed back to Seattle after we saw you. Were the callibaetis coming off? The ones we were seeing were pretty damn big. We were just about to leave when we started seeing them so only through a couple dry flies, to no avail. The fish were looking up though. I agree on the Ford. I had a great time standing on a rock and finding new ways to fish with a scud. It was amazing how many different presentations of a scud those fish were giving a look to. I noticed that if a fish darted at the scud right away, others would sometimes compete. It seemed like they didn't care what it was or why they were going at it...just wanted to "win". I think Rocky Ford is one of the best places in the state to take a beginner, not only to catch fish but to learn. I didn't think you could learn much from it before this weekend.

    Yup, I too clicked on that catchy headline! I took the bait hook line and sinker. I bit on that one. Ok, ok I'll stop using fishing references.

    Great post. You obviously put a lot of thought into it.
