    "Where have you been..."

    School's back in session; four games a week to shuttle the youngsters to and fro. I've been spending what little time is left for SPEY casting practice on the Skagit, you know, that river that is far too big to fish.

    As for the fly - Some type of deer hair-ball. Maybe a Muddler or some type of spun deer hair caddis (?).

    What do I know---I'm just an old man

    That river is also called the Green . It starts our as the Duwamish Waterway and at or about Tukwila it changes to the Green. It dumps into Elliot bay just a little South of downtown. If you look at a map of Seattle You can't miss where it runs at. And yes everyone says they are in but at the moment they all have lock jaw.

    I usually sit at my computer with a map of Washington at my side so I can answer some questions of areas that I'm familiar with.

    Go thru Seattle towards Seatac Airport. Use Hwy 99, past the Boeing plant to the intersection where Martin luther king is, go thru the intersection and you will see a bridge over the River.
    From there you can back track to the first road on the right. It dead ends at the river and there is a foot bridge there, go down the bank and there's the river.
    Or you can make a left turn at the Martin Luther intersection and take the back road to Tukwila there are spots alll along the bank.
    Or you can just follow the river up thru Tukwila all the way to Kent. Whatever its a fairly long river.
    Right now I am fishing near Hwy 99 for Silvers.

    Granite Lakes have Grayling in them and your Hummer might just get you within a 1/2 mile. Otherwise its about a 4 mile hump each way.

    Much respect goes out to you. I hope to still be out there fishing when I get to be that young :THUMBSUP . My fishing buddy is my dad who is about to turn 50. The only thing we have problems with is the fact that he out fishes me almost every outing. LOL. Anyways not to get off the topic of this thread...I am coming over to Seattle area later in the year and will be looking you up Phil. Learn as much as you can so I can catch some fish. :LOVEIT
