    Ok, newbe question, where is this place at? Would a 6wt set up work well out there? and if I can make I can spring for some wood. I have been cutting the dang stuff all winter and what ever I don't use in the next couple months I can bring, that is if you all don't mind having a newbe around. :clown:

    If you like, I can dress up like Mr. T and be like the wise janitor who watches the football games from the sidelines and comes through with advice when things are taking a turn for the worse. Mmmmhmmmmm.... I grew up amongst those sneaky canucks and I have grown wise to their sneakiness. They'll be on the jazz and talking a whole lotta Jibba-Jabba, but don't let it distract you. I love it when a plan comes together!

    Hey Alpine trout--

    Nothing like a man who knows the enemy. How about being the American captain of the fishing tournament. It's just an honor really. Not much work,
    Nor pay. But if we win, I think the captain gets to kiss the award's presentation chick and has his photo in the papers, movie rights, endorsements, etc.

    How about it?

    Bob, the I'll do it if I have to but I've never even fished Dry Falls. I would think that would let me out just right there!

    I would be in if the wife doesn't have to work (kids). Just let me know when the dates are. Are float tubes a must out there?

    Sure Bob, I'll accept your nomination. I want Backyard as my assistant captain though. He owes me a few favors, so I trust he'll oblige. (Action Optics ring a bell?) :beer2:

    this sounds like a great idea. being new to the board, it'll give me faces to associate with the words. besides with all the grey dreary weather around here lately (eastern wa), i'll need something to pull me through 'til spring.

    could bring wood, thinking what else is laying around the place.

    Greg, if i can go i can bring a float tube for you. But i can go if it is the two middle weeks in april. I can probably bring two tubes if somebody else needs it.

    Damn it! How much time is it goona take till you forget about those action optics. :rofl:

    Ok I'll Assist the captain... as long as the only assistance he needs is me to open his beers, or throw yellow flags at people. Do I get a whistle? Who gets to shoot the gun? Probably not Macrowdy... I think his is still under a rock on the north fork. :thumb:

    Also I have about 6 Caddis Uboats, and flippers that could be borrowed. In trade for for flies, or you can be my campfire jester. You know, do tricks, let the guys that want to punch me... punch you instead. Nothing to serious...
