    Sure Bob, I'll accept your nomination. I want Backyard as my assistant captain though. He owes me a few favors, so I trust he'll oblige. (Action Optics ring a bell?) :beer2:

    this sounds like a great idea. being new to the board, it'll give me faces to associate with the words. besides with all the grey dreary weather around here lately (eastern wa), i'll need something to pull me through 'til spring.

    could bring wood, thinking what else is laying around the place.

    Damn it! How much time is it goona take till you forget about those action optics. :rofl:

    Ok I'll Assist the captain... as long as the only assistance he needs is me to open his beers, or throw yellow flags at people. Do I get a whistle? Who gets to shoot the gun? Probably not Macrowdy... I think his is still under a rock on the north fork. :thumb:

    Also I have about 6 Caddis Uboats, and flippers that could be borrowed. In trade for for flies, or you can be my campfire jester. You know, do tricks, let the guys that want to punch me... punch you instead. Nothing to serious...

    Come on Backyard give us some good dates on this. But as you all know that these dates that he will enter will not work for everyone. But it is usually a weekend and most try to put in three days. Be it Friday thru Sunday. .

    Last year was a blast. All everybody wanted to do was fish and all I wanted to do was drink ptyd ptyd ptyd .

    How about April 15,16, and 17? We can't please everybody regardless of the date we pick so we just have to go for it and hope it is right for most.

    Bob, the I have sent a signal up North to see if those dates would be OK.

    Not trying to take charge, Alpine Trout is the American Captain of the CanAm Fishing Showdown, Backyard the assistant Captain and Bob is just the originator and top seeded fishermen . :D

    I just need to get sponsored by A/O so I can replace all the pairs I've lost or broken... Me and glasses just don't mix. I've gotten 6 pairs of those amber ones from Ron, you know ron from the shop. In as many months. :beathead:

    I'm open for any dates... I was hoping that 3 months notice would give everyone time to rally and get the schedules cleared.

    My only concern is that "The Washington Fly Fishing Club" has their group coming out sometime in april I beleive. It's big lake but, we get 50+ people at these events. Plus those damn Canadians coming down and taking all the good camping spots. IF the WFFC shows up we could have near a 100 people on that poor lake. :hmmm:

    Its ok though.. I'll just grab a sweet blow gun from the army supply store... and pick off tubes and pontoons of people not sporting allegiance to wff.com.
    I'll even wear some reeltree camo, you know the kind that looks like reeds. Now theres some shit you can film zen. :rofl:

    You left one date off. "I don't care when it's happening I'm still coming". Besides it won't let me click on all of the other ones.
