I am bring the Hyde. I think I have one seat open. PM if you need a ride.
Bove, You ready for the new and improved cat/griz showdown. Blake and me vs. you and andy. We will be judged on # of fish, #of beer, and and overall physical appearence.....because if you don't look good fishing, why are you even out there. Oh yeah I have the new G-5000 prototype simms/gucci hybrid waders and tie combo. :rofl:
Clack VS. Hyde
PS you will lose points for fishing glue eggs or beads and there is a minimum fly size of 3". so it has to be longer than that. Will be out there early more than likely. ptyd
All your driftboat are belong to us....
I will bring my hyde as well. I will have an open seat and a few extra rods.
I have a previous engagement, but it's on the O.P. also, so I might stop by later in the week.
Good I just tied up some cdc tube flies. They will meet the 3" minimum with the stinger hooks I put on them. They work rather well dead drifted.
As for style, gucci has me beat.
Glue eggs or 5" flies only in my boat...
Well as of right now, I'm a probable go for the weekend. Have a few strings to try to sew up, but should be a go. I probably will just bank it. Was gonna tow the driftboat or bring the steelheader. But may just spend the weekend cooking and relaxing (yes, I'll bring all my grills with). So will be showing up with my truck/camper that Friday after work. Unless by some miracle I can get that Friday off (doubt it but we'll see).
Wow, this is a big party.
Ima'proly have to go fish it the week prior. . .
There is also camping on the Lower Hoh Road, on the west side of the highway. Take that road west and head in a few miles, the campground is marked. In fact, the OP is heaven when it comes to campsites: they're everywhere.
The camping on the lower Hoh is Cottonwoods. I personally never liked that campground. But I always had a love for the Oxbow and the ones up the upper Hoh road.
Got to change the rules. 5" minimum and tight line only. T-14 is encouraged, lots and lots of T-14. Bove, CDC? you and rene harrop can go hang out on the henry's fork together and skip and hold hands. :rofl:
That does it! I'm gonna show up, if only for a day, not only with my 8 wt, but also my 6 wt and my 4 wt, and if I'm not trailering my mini-drifter, then I'll be car-topping my squanoe. For when the rivers get dangerously booked with driftboats full of wildass partying wff members, I will attempt to escape the madness and go fish small flies for trout in one of the year round lakes up there!
There will be no skipping and holding hands. Drink all you want, with 30 people already going it will be good to have at least half puking up their spleen at day break. I will have fished several runs. Monday thru Friday, 16 hours of fishing on five hours of sleep a night. I fish hard and lose 8 to 12 flies a day. I need four or five dozen flies. This aint gonna be a cub scout meeting. I’m a bank monkey at heart, but I will bring my toon or float with anyone that offers. All I’d have to offer are flies, a big fat sandwich and experience. In the spirit of the fishing buddy program, I will spend time tying flies on the leaders of new guys. Once again demonstrating that we at Washington fly fishing are not elitist holes that don’t give a crap about the new guys. However, I would prefer to fish hard with other knowledgeable brothers, so my time for showing the new guys the ropes will be limited. I’m fishing my ass off. I’m not bringing a grill. Just sandwiches and coffee and water.
scout? dangerous? nah! we make a big toast to river gods, drink down the prayer and hold on tight ! We don't need no scoutin', where's the fun in that?
Please Matt????? Tye my fly on will yuh?????
What do you guys say to a REAL pissing contest for once?
