I would actually echo OMJs comments re keeping it close to home. Being in N Kirkland it's just as easy for you to get to the upper SF of the Snoqualmie where you'll not only learn a lot with willing fish, you'll also find cool picnic spots for wife and kids right on top of fishy water.
Yea definitely. I have an extra reel with floating line on it you can use. PM me and we can set it up. We only have a few weeks left to hit the Cedar, and then I will be mostly on the forks and the green.
