    Let's pick a day and a beach somebody, probably just after Thanksgiving and let's see what happens. I'm better for a weekday. How's about a Kitsap beach?

    Okay Mumbles, you're on! I'm in and I'll bring some of the donuts and some coffee. You didn't hear me say bad donuts . You've heard the saying good, better, best, it's just hard to find the best ones any more, too many mass production shops now. I can't cast well and have to learn spey casting but with your expertise for me to watch I''m bound to gain a lot. I'll bring both outfits and play around and give you a bad time. That sound okay we'll see if we're both up to the challenge. Maybe I can get Leland to bring sone of his poppers for me to buy and then show me how to fish them if he would. I'm hopeing to make it to the Orvis shop sometime soon but don't know when. Pick a date and beach, After thanksgiving I'm open untill the 15th any day. Bob

    I'll bring a couple Helios rods and lines. I'll bring Krispy Kremes if you'd like.

    How about a Fishing Friday? That is my only week day off. I have a Kitsap beach or two in mind, but if there are other locations more accomodating for a group then I'm game.

    Friday's fine by me, I see a coupLe or 3 in my time frame. Leland, You're going to make me ashamed of my gear and never satisfied with mine again. Of course that's going to be okay and don't go out of your way to get krispy cremes they are on my way and I'll try one or two others to see if i can get a different selection. I don't intend to bring tons but I should do my part. Mumbles fimd us a good one with lots of room so we don't kill each other, although so far it's just us three responding. I sure more will come as soom as we set the date. Bob

    Friday is a big day in the retail world and I am definitely out. I can do this coming Monday and Wednesday. When I get to the shop in a couple hours, I will see if I can schedule the following Friday, the 4th off.

    Bummer, Friday mornings are occupied. I could be south sound/kitsap by noon, but traveling from Everett and there would be a 50/50 chance I have to be at work by no later than 3 in seattle. But hell, I'd drive mass hours to play for a couple minutes.

    I'll come. I'm free everyday until around the 7th or 8th of December. Then it's back to work but depending on the schedule I can probably sneak away from that.

    I'm not suggesting The Narrows but the tide should be close to the same at most of the other beaches. So...on 12/4 at The Narrows it is high @0731 @ 13.96 feet. Low @ 1245 @ 8.14 feet....a fairly high low if that makes sense. Soooo with these tides what would be the best beach??

    I would suggest 10AM at whichever beach is best for everyone.
