    I've pondered this often. Typed it several times. Always opted not to post new thread...until today.

    With who/whom, of the diverse and exciting membership of WFF would you like to fish?

    What would you be fishing for, and where (no GPS coordinates please).

    Most interestingly tell us, in brief, your reasons. Add as many as you would like. I will apologize in advance if over the course of time you don't get mentioned. This is not intended as a popularity indication, but just a subject to bullshit while we are gathered here around our campfire.

    I will start with a few:

    Luke77, the Yakima, trout, because he owes me a beer.

    Dave Alberts, anywhere. We've been around water together, even on some fishing trips but we've never actually fished together yet. That changes soon.

    Freestone, anywhere. Same reason as above. Seems it will take the alignment of all fifteen planets in our solar system to make this happen...but I've got some pull in the cosmos! This too changes soon.

    Your turn. I'll add more if this thread keeps on a positive vibe of getting fishy folks together to share some water.

    Good post Ed.

    I dont know a lot of people here yet but to be honest, anyone here would be great to share water with and hopefully learn from.

    There have been some special people who have helped me a lot on the water. To name only a few.... Scott that lives in Shoreline, JC in Edmonds, Loren was great to fish with, Ira, Yoshida, and a lot more.

    Old Man Jim: tiny water for hidden trout, all natives with wonderful colors using a small rod with small flies and no one around.

    Lord knows I will fish with just about anyone (except Sand). Never been real picky over fishing partners. To take this to a different level I think if I could chose anyone to fish with perhaps Haig-Brown or maybe Zane Grey.

    Stephan Hawking, (anywhere with easy access) he'd be interesting to listen to, and pretty sure he won't pick my pockets.....:)

    Hitting the Rogue with Zane? Hell to the Yes! Haig-Brown? I don't know... I think I'd nod off in the car, and take us both out...

    Actual response: Anyone open to floating who has their own Watermaster/pontoon and a pickup so I don't have deflate my WM, or who has a boat!

    Smalma - knows a lot and is always willing the share
    Salmo_G - he's an OG in the steelhead game
    Pan - been told he's a cool guy despite his internet personality
    Stilly Stalker - I know that guy catches a lot of fish
    Thad - Fellow jig thrower
    Mumbles - I owe him a few beers
    ak_powder monkey - I've always wanted to fish AK
    Yuhina - He fishes some amazing places and is knowledgeable
    Derek Young - still haven't managed to hook up yet...will soon though

    That's all I can think of off the top of my head.

    I used to think I'd like to fish with Luke77 until I saw he changed his avatar. Now I'm not so sure.

    I've never fished with OMJ, but in the places he fishes who cares.
    Freestone, pretty much anytime, anywhere as long I as I don't have to work.
    Alex, as long as I don't have to drag him back to the truck.
    ribka, well maybe, the only time we fished together he handed my ass to me 5 to 1
    Mingo, just cause the fish porn is so awesome.
    Micro brew, very pleasant man to fish with.
    Last but not least Coach Duff, the man is a fishin' machine, plus a kick in the ass to hang with.

    If I was to list all the people here that I have fished with and drank with I would probably miss a lot of names. So I'm not putting any names out there. But I did meet KerryS once. It was on the N/F Stilly at Hazel. We were looking at the water from up above and just wondering if it was worth it..

    Triploid Junkie cause he lives in and fishes great water and has tons of knowledge
    Mumbles-I like his sense of humor and he has almost as many boats as I do!
    Jack Chinook-would live to backpack with him to some remote lakes
    Derek Young-really knows the Yak and seems like a stand up guy
    Kjsteelhead-I met him Thursday at an after school class for fly fishing ( I helped with the tying) he does at Blaine middle school and it is impressive what a great teacher he is and how he is teaching the love of fly fishing to middle school kids.
    UptonO-we like to do a lot of the same things and are about the same age.
    There are many others but this is a start.

    I remember that day. I didn't know who you were and you asked me about getting down behind the firehall. I think you knew all along and was checking if I would share info with you, you sly old bastard.
