    Great time!
    Thanks Mark!

    The camp at night was fantastic but always went to the wee hours of the morning. Those little BROWN JUGS. Made it hard to work on lines in the day time, NO SLEEP. And Having Scott come wake us up in the wee hours of the morning, Thanks Scott!

    Four days is a short time. But we made the best of it.

    Ed Ward hitting fish, what’s new.
    Spey Bum any time, it was FUN
    Aaron, Thanks for the line. It fly’s on the Skagit!
    Bob Meiser your 5wt. 11’7” was a hard rod to walk away from, and 13’6” and ……
    George Cook TCR WHEN!
    Wet fly how many times did you walk to the river? How many rods did you use?
    Andy Murray, Mach 1 and + where great lines!
    Tim & Steve Rajeff casting, I don’t need to say anything more about that.

    This brings up a point, all you guys bring all these GREAT RODS and LINES we go and cast them, then you tell us we CAN’T get those RODS and LINES for a YEAR! You guys are BRAVE.

    Every night I was in bad shape, casting about 15 rods a day is hard on the body!

    If you didn’t notice I was take-in a lot pictures down there, I’ve attach a link to some of them. But not all, if I put all of them up it would take days to look at. Here it is

    I enjoyed the week-end but Sunday night was a BIG BUMMER everyone was gone.
    Next Year is to far away, we have to do this more often.

    Brian, that was really neat, great photos again. I enjoyed that. Of course the only bad thing here is that it showed me what I missed by not being able to go. Maybe next year.

    Hey Homey,

    for me to see what I missed.:7

    HEY! Dont give me that Jetstream baloney!

    I just got my new Rio Windcutter in the mail, with Upgrade Head I might add, and now you give me this line...What the heck?

    120 Feet!?! Did someone walk the thing out there for you and drop it on the measuring tape when you yelled Whoa!?!

    Thanks for the information and the great photos Brian. Hopefully work won't get in the way of me getting there next year.
