Jesse,

You must be one sick F'er. I can't name all the sins you're proposing. I thought you liked Kerr. Why would you do something like this to him? No matter how much you pay him, it's a waste of his good time and a waste of potential steelhead fishing space. Even if you and all your buddies fall in and get soaked head to toe, I don't don't see any priceless in this event, but no lack of violating ever religious steelhead code there is or ever could be.

As for hooking steelhead, ain't gonna' happen if your group is fly fishing. If you had any couth or self respect whatever, you'd take your buddies to Green Lake or some similar harmless place. But since it looks like you've booked Kerr for this worthless event, you really owe everyone here fair warning of when and where you're going to be so that we can all avoid you like the plague your group will be. Thanks in advance, and I hope you all survive.

if he has the money to pay for it and wants to take the 7 dwarves he has every right. Everyone has the same right to the river given that they are fishing legal.

I guess he is an asshole too for supporting local guidee jim kerr with 7+1 clients for a day as well.

Pretty sure ol' Salmo is making an attempt at being humorous.

Plus, anyone who's met me in real life knows that I'm just as big of an asshole in person as I am on the internet. Unfortunately, it's just a problem I'm working through. ;)

This thread highlights the need for a special sarcasm font for internet forum and email use. That way everyone will be clear when a statement is for realz or not. Carry on, Jesse.

The Skagit in Manitoba? :) Have fun and good luck! Of course, pretty much guarantee 3-4 native winter steehead swinging the Skagit. Nice.

I'm taking a group of buddies.... 7 guys.... fly fishing with Jim Kerr. Most of them have never been fishing... much less fly fishing...
So.....God bless you for introducing them to the joys of fishing in general and specifically, of tossin' flies to fish!

Whether they're duffers or not and land fish or not, they will learn and experience the rewards of fishing.

After all, it's really not about the catching! :)

We are going to be fishing the Skagit. Which as you know is no secret. Pretty much guarantee a couple hookups a day for winter swinging.

1) I didn't know that Jim Kerr guides on the Skagit....I thought he only pulls the oars on the OP.
2) If you're gonna fish the Skagit, you better hurry....the Skagit below Rockport, and the Sauk, close tomorrow, and the upper Skagit closes Feb 15th.
3) A couple of hook-ups a day, with 7 guys who haven't been steelhead flyfishing, on the Skagit, with high flows anticipated in the near future as snow levels go up to 6,000 ft? Maybe....

Of course, this could all be a ruse to throw us off, and keep the film crews from the river that you're actually gonna fish, right?
