    No advance scouting of rapids allowed. Got to give SAR something to do, and maybe thin out the pressure on select fly water at the same time. There ought to be a special prize for the angler who catches and does not release a WFF carcass that comes floating down the river.

    Hmmmmm. I'll be there the previous Saturday-Monday. May drop by on Monday and say hello. Maybe even come back out the following weekend. Sounds like a blast.

    If there is room for a couple more, my buddy and I would like to go. He's not a FF angler yet but I'm sure you guys will change that!

    This is going to be better then those Pram burnings I hope.

    I don't know. I've never been to one of them. We burn a lot of firewood, dug fur, propane. That sort of thing.

    Rick,

    You clearly don't understand. There is no competition in the fishing. You can compete all you want at the keg drinking however. It's encouraged in fact. Commode huggin' drunks is the whole idea.

    I might just have to show up and show the young guys how to drink. I've been mulling this around in my brain for a few days now.

    How much does a three day out of state license cost. But with me driving over 800 miles just to get there why should I worry about a cheap thing like that.

    But being that I'll be 73 at the time it might just slip my mind and forget about it. I'm almost senile now.
