    So exactly how many State Parks are we going to be at? Looks like a few may be hiding at those parks up on Banks lake. Are we going to have a meeting spot or just wear our patches. Speaking of which, I don't have a patch. Is anyone bringing patches? I hope to be fishing before lunch on Friday in my new pontoon boat. I'll slap down the cash for my spot with ranger rick at Sun Lakes and then mark my spot with urine on the post or some such device you will recognize. Pitch a tent, but leave me a spot to park. And I don't want no beer cans and smores all over my campsite.

    BTW Whitey, you better be tying your ass off. I don't have no stinking trout flies. If you don't have enough, I'm taking your vest, but I'll leave ya your PFD because I like you and think your special.

    No worries matt, I am currently getting real creative with some Chironomids. Got about a dozen or so today. So Matt, You have no trout fies? :dunno Actually, I'm not suprised, I always knew you were a steelhead elitist!;) If you steal my vest, I'm gonna grab your new sage 5120 spey and take off! BTW, I hope I get to demo that puppy, every time I hit a flyshop, they a plum out. That 5120 is selling like hotcakes!

    YT's ride=95 Toyota 4runner. red. look for it.:smokin

    I used to know it all---but now that I'm older I seem to forget it all.

    I hope you don't think that you will learn anything from me. I'm just an old dumb wetsider. Actually of all the years that I've been fly fishing I've only fished stillwater about 6 times so this type of fishing is totally new to me. I just like skinny water.:beer1 :smokin . I have no idea why I use these icons as I don't smoke and I never drink unless I'm alone or with somebody.:dunno .

    If you see an old fat man out there looking like he doesn't know what he's doing in a bright yellow tube and yelling dirty words that will be me.:bawling. If the tube doesn't get to my house in time I'll be in a Alpine by B/B and it is a teal green. And I will still be swearing.

    You guys are killing me! If Gknell is going to be there we won't stop laughing! I am laughing already. Between Gknell, Bart and OldMan it will surely be a historic event! I wish Sparsy could be there on friday night.

    Wait, why isn't BOBLAWLESS going to be there? I want Boblawless!!!!!!!!!!

    I need to take a poll: Since Whitey is going to be driving, and he packs so much shiz into his 4 runner, and I will probably have to choose between the Famous "red pants" or the Sheepskin, Which should I choose?

    Thanks for the help. I am totally at a loss as to what I should do!

    Weather looks good, truck is loaded, I'm outta here. I will be heading over to the state park today, leaving in about 5 minutes. Will be there through Sunday. Looking forward to meeting everyone. I'm driving a green 95 Tacoma, with a roof rack, WaterSkeeter pontoon boat, grey/blue REI dome tent. Anyone that can come over early look me up. Don't worry, I probably won't catch all the fish before Friday. Just scare them with some poorly tied flies.

    Yeah if I don't let Whitey crash in my tent he might sleep under the stars and become waaaay too rugged for all of us. As long as he doesn't bring along his "tent partner" Alexandria.

    I think I'll try to bring both but we'll just have to see.

    Hey, I got some pants that are black with red peppers all over them. Can I wear them or will they show up your red ones.:p

    Don't you think this should be started on a new thread. If someone was to start at the beginning he would not get it read until friday. And besides I'm now starting to read everythingtwice. You can tell by my last sentence that I have been up way tooo loooooong and needsome sleep.

    I started this string about 2 months ago. I was wondering at the time if anyone had a report on Dry Falls, because I was heading there on the 19th of April. MAN, did it ever grow into something great. I am so looking forward to this trip! There are a lot of names/faces to put together for me, I can't begin to realize. I understand that there will be patches available. If the person who has the patches is going to be there, I WANT ONE. I'm bringing BHPTN's, Wooly Buggers, size 22 & 24 midges, and everything else I can think of that doesn't work. If everyone shows up, who says they will show up, the Park Department will probably start the $5 parking fee earlier next year. So we should think of another place for next Spring. But for this year, I'm looking forward to a saturated lake with friends from both sides of the state. Let's make it an annual affair. Maybe next year we can do the second week in June, on the Kettle River, north of Repubulic. What say?

    I'd say you'd have some major moaning and groaning from the westsiders (or "coasties") if you made them drive that long for a sweet place like the Kettle. You've got to remember, most of these guys ruff-tuff it at the Lake Sammamish State Park.:p

    Sparse,

    Whitey talked me into it, greyghost and I were planning on camping at another spot out that way on Saturday, but heck, we might as well swing by and have a coupla beers and tie some flies (I've got most of my materials with me). Have to be back at work on Sunday, so if nothing else, let's party!
