    I can't officially take earned vacation until April with my job conversion...probation...what the hell is that. I'll find a way. I'm remembering most favored mid to late March. I'll find a way! Thanks Jeff. One brief conversation and you got the post up. You are one serious dude! This one is gonna be a long one! Whenever it is, I'll find a way.

    Right on Jeff!! My vote is for the first week in March as I got a baby on the way for late March. I was just thinking about this last week and am happy to see you are as well. I would even vote for sometime in Feb. but I'm not going to be too picky as I might not even get to be there. Most likely a wait and see game for me.

    Now we gotta get Jerry on da Hoh Boat! I still think about the piece of Rib Eye!!! :beer2:

    Depends on when it is. I think I have vacation in March. But could arrange a long weekend trip. I guess everyone liked the food and especially the ribeye. If I go Ill cook.

    I assume that's at the HOH river, what does it intail.since it seems those replying know what it's about maybe the rest of us aren't supposed to know. Does it require an invitation? Just curious, had my doubts it was a square dance. most of you just don't seem the type thanks Bob

    Bob,
    It is several-day get together on the Hoh at a time when river levels are often conducive to flyfishing and the native steelhead are in and willing to play. It entails meeting some of the faces behind the avatars, eating some creative camp food, excessive drinking, and some fishing. It is a come-one, come-all affair. Bring a positive, contributing attitude, much like the board in general.

    So if a guy like myself were to want to stop by and meet some folks just for the day, would this be allowed? I don't get another set of vacation time for awhile past March so I won't be able to take days off but perhaps I may come out early morning Saturday or Sunday and do some fishing? Also...what can one expect to be catching in March on the Hoh? will a 6wt suffice? perhaps I'll splurge on a 8wt before March, but highly unlikely since I just bought my 6wt...

    native steelhead, no 6wt, 8wt is about right
