    Ivan and I will be nailing spiny rays in the Potholes that weekend, but we may hit DF on the 20th. If we have any great things to share, we'll leave word at the office where you sign up for a camping spot.

    I may swing by on my way home Sunday depending on where we end up... :confused:

    I'll be there sometime Friday afternoon! I will probably leave sometime around 9am, but haven't decided for sure yet.

    Gotta get to tying up some stuff for the trip. Anyone want to share some good patterns? PM if its got to be kept secret!

    No one does DF without Jim Beams in their fly box, the bigger, the better.

    Ahh Roper.. It won't be the same without you. Who's gonna night fish with me?

    Anyways I'll be showing up mid-day on thursday. I'll try to secure a good main section for us to throw down a bonfire and what not.

    I'll bring extra tubes and fins also.

    We'll night fish again, in that nameless lake, and I'll see if I can catch another bat and your waders too... :rofl:

    That was so sweet. The bat part, that is. Didn't you false cast him a few times? haha :rofl: Did I ever tell you the story about noodling a bat from a bridge with a caddis with a clipped hook. Rowdy and myself about pissed ourselves when he ran me around a power line.

    Those little fly'n rats put up a pretty good fight.

    I've got it on my calendar and will hopefully be able to make it. I can provide any English to Canadian translation services required for the event. :clown:

    I don't remember seeing anything about camping details. Is it necessary to reserve a spot at the state park or what? :confused:

    If I go I'll try some night fishing. Love strapping on the headlamp and tossing big white streamers for some big ole fish. Everytime I've ever night fished it's always paid off in big ways. ;)


    Unkie Bob: Ok....I'll go read through the first thread.


    Edit: Read the thread....a lot of good that did me.....and I just have one question. How is camping goning to work out? Multiple people in different sites? Is there a group camp at Sun Lakes we can reserve? Should I reserve my own site?

    My records show that is 194 miles from here to Coulee City which means I should be on the water no later than 11:00am on the 20th. Look for a white Dodge pickup and a guy fishing out of a Super Fat Cat. I hope to pre-perforate a few lips before the hordes show up on Friday. :thumb: Any of you early arrivals stop by and introduce yourselves, it will be nice to meet you. Ive

    I'll probably be up there on Thurs. sometime in the afternoon. Depends on how early I get up and get going. Hopefully Backyard will mark where the fire is going so I can camp far enough away to keep the paint from melting off my truck. You got to love his comment on fires at the Cowlitz, "It's not a fire if you can't see it from space." :beer2:
    Hey Old man, No whiskey for you until Sat. night. I want to see you fish. :p

    Backyard, if you are going to be there Thursday night I would be glad to throw some flies with you at night. I've even got a glow in the dark line. Fished Rocky Ford at night many times. :thumb:
