    bob lawless,

    What is your opinion on jet boaters loaded down with gear heads? Will they ever become extinct?

    We might be able to get rid of them if we spent a few minutes on our e-mails everday. Write everybody. Make it short and to the point. Some kid, not the congressperson or senator, will read it, put it in a special box, and then give a report to the big man or woman and maybe something can be done with the regs. Odinairily you wil get a response saying that the problem is being studied. The Democrats are the most likely to be receptive so concentrate on them.

    Here are some of the problems I have with them:
    1. They decrese the quality of the outdoor experience with all their noise as they plow up and down the river.
    2. They churn up spawning redds and destroy tons of fish.
    3. They pollut with their gas engines.
    4. They are able to reach places that should be left alone, small spawning spots where any disturbance will harm the fishery.
    5. They haul too many gear heads.
    6. They have any unfair advantage over the fish and the other fishermen.
    5. And stuff I can't think of but I am sure it exists.

    Yeah,Yeah,Yeah, and I would hate wet-behind-the-ears braggarts except that it is much easier to be totally indifferent to 'em. :TSKTSK

    Congratulations on your good day. :THUMBSUP

    The "Dungey" was very low and clear and full of chums when I left my parent's house (a couple of minutes from the river) on friday, but I chose to head out to the wild west end to try to find some steelies, checking the Lyre (also low and clear...too low) and then the Sol Duc (low but enticing and I got skunked) and then a quick recon of a spot on the Bogy at dusk-59 before completing the counter-clockwise 101 Loop and heading back to Grayland. Checked the Dosewallips thurs a.m. and it was low and clear and I saw only one fish below the 101 bridge and an ouzel doing its thing under water with one wing breaking the surface, momentarily fooling me into thinking it was a fish before it suddenly surfaced and flew off. Did stop to check Waters West in P.A. and it was a really cool shop and ended up buying some flies, an Airflo Mult-tip, and a Temple Fork Outfitters 9' 6wt.(I'm on a low budget). Great customer service. A ton-o-work now has me by the nads and it may be friday before I can go out to try my new stuff, but I love the way it cast in my yard. Hit the frisbee I use as a target at 50' + on the third cast, and three more times in the next half hour, which is an improvement for me.

    I was at the same *riffle* on Sun, Wed, and Thursday. There's a lot of chum in there, however its really hard to not fowl hook those guys since they are in there thick. Nice little place but it can get crowded quickly. Three or more in that hole is too many. :)

    Becoming a man...

    ...has absolutely nothing to do with fly fishing, gear fishing, or any other sport. Stay in school, learn how to spell and speak correctly. Puncuation is a skill you could aquire too. When you finally become a man you will not need to hate anything or anyone.

    By the way, nice Brown.

    Roper,

    Bob Lawless,

    Where did the term "Bank Maggot" originate from? Is it because gear heads leave little styrafoam containers lining the rivers edge--remnants of the days exhausted supply of Nightcrawlers. I suppose there would probably be a few shmidt cans there too.

    Funny, I notice that you spelled learn wrong. "leanr"? And "Hate" is a pretty strong word. I 'chuck' bait as well as fly fish. I suppose we all have a lot to LEARN!
