    nope, your correct. But the drive is a mere 2.5 minutes on a slow dirt road....no big deal.

    I think the fee is 5 bucks a night??

    I'll bet my Sage 5120 (trout spey) would pull 20 feet of leader out of the water. It rocks for dry fly fishing. I'll have to put some thought into it though. Wasn't a weekend dad last time and every moment with my kids is cherished. Maybe Grandma would like 'em for the day in Lake Wetsnatchee. I'd have to take vacation on that Friday so let us confirm these dates and I'll have to dwell on this.

    If your only going to bring 12 beers I might as well just stay home. That ain't enough to get me started. Last year they made me drink until I couldn't drink anymore or maybe they all went to bed and I was sitting in front of the fire by myself. It's no fun sitting there and talking to ones self.

    I need to ask as to what manner of Chironomid works as I should get to tying some up as my tying leaves something to be desired and as slow as I do it,it will take me until April to get them done. Man what a mouthful. I don't think that I have ever said so many words in a sentence.:beathead

    If that link doesnt work, its the green chironomid (#12-16's) under the "main" title page of the gallery...then look under fly swaps top ten until you find a green chironomid?

    Will you do me a favor Jim...sleep next to Macs tent }(

    heres a pic also.

    this fly is tied on as a trailer to a red Jim Beam with a white bead head on size 10 or 12 scud hook. A Jim beam is a red body with some sort of rib wrapped forward and tied off.

    The fly Patrick tied works great in a size 16. Also, snowcones in black and olive #14-18 will work very well. I've also hooked many fish on a #18 olive biot pattern I tie (see the photos for last year's chironomid swap).

    Truth is, I think any chironomid pattern in a #16-18 would work. The key is to get in on the bottom and fish it sloooow.

    Thanks for the picture. I have been tying up alot of green woven flies and what I really need is the hook size. I don't want to tie them up on to big of a hook.

    This time I won't be drinking Coke all day like I did last time. I was a wide awake drunk all night that why I couldn't sleep. Wired from Coke.
