    While I am at the other end of the 410 Hwy, and thirsty for how to use my new toys, I would like to attend as well.

    Wanderer..welcome aboard mate. I'll hopefully let everyone know a solid date and location, if Mike doesn't beforehand. Mike is leaning toward Eburg, or mid canyon. I may get out and scout tomorrow. As is said..stand by to stand by.

    Mike T, based on my one time experience with Mike on the Sky..no experience necessary. I had none, and still do..that's why I inquired if Mike would come over and give us eastsiders a shot at his expertise and tutelage. He's an awesome teacher..very one on one, even with a class of a half dozen or more. You won't regret the experience, although I may going out on a limb with that one. Welcome aboard for the ride, although you may regret it in the short term gear requirement bawling:

    My apologies, but either of the dates in October won't work for me. Kids in college and events going on to support as well as a trip on the lower Deschutes. Just wanted to make sure you were aware.

    Seth..space is unlimited as far as I know. Good on you to make the trek..should be good times. I'm thinkin of bringin a cooler of PBR, some munchies, and who knows what else. Lets have some fun, enjoy Mike and each other, and learn. Could this turn into a Yakima Clave?? How cool would that be..Clearwater, Sandy, Yakima???

    Hi Mike I just heard about that clinic last night from a friend who is going. I am planning on attending the Clearwater event. Thanks for letting me know and appreciate helping us newbies out.
    Look forward to meeting you on the Clearwater.
    Cheers,
    Seth

    TTT, just sayin we have a jedi comin east. Wat say you? I've got my son dialed in using my spey 7wt rig..I wanna learn my 4wt switch which I'll prolly use more. U up for a cool experience from the Skagit Master? Shite, this dude has his own U Tube things, a kindle offering which I haven't fully read yet. He's a cool guy..kinda in your face, but cool.

    Note to benevolent Administrator..this was my personal invite to Mike.
