    Go to lone, let us know how it was. Went two weeks ago, landed 4. It was still a bit agleaish, but should be good by now. I have a secret Lone lake pattern. I'll Email you. Unless you wanna drive 6 hours? Probally not.

    Macrowdy has so much damn video equipment, It should be a good film.

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

    Yes. I had another answer worked out in my head but being as old as I am I forgot it.

    I think I have my shakes thing figured out. I pre-tie up the flies that I want to use with leaders and keep them in a Pips container. I did that to about 20 flies and now I will see how it works. That is on the small flies. The bigger ones I just wrap a rope around them. It works. Since I have so much time on my hands and that river is so close I think I will go back and try it all out. I have a very strong magnifying glass that I use for tying them in the first place.

    "Hi My name's Whitey, I've got a secret lone lake fly I will e-mail it to you!" Um yeah Whitey, sure you do.

    More Dialog from Yesterday:
    "Hi my names JIM I'm an Old Man. I live 17 miles from the Stilly! Did I happen to mention that I live only 17 MILES from the STILLY!? Since I live so close to the STILLY I think I will go there tomorrow and lay down on the side of the river. Last time I did that I got up all by myself! I am pretty proud of that. And I have this lethal weapon numchuck walking stick that folds up and then unfolds with a SHHHWik! It comes in handy for fishing things out of the river that I drop."


    MacRowdy: "Hey Jim you wanna peek into my secret fly box?"
    Jim: "Hell NO! What would I wanna do that for!"
    (Takes a peek anyway.)
    Jim: "You are so damn neat and organized. I hate that! I hate neatness. If I had my flies that neat I would go crazy!" (opens up one of his 50 boxes and flies start spilling out.)

    I think to myself: "yep he's not kidding." And after he showed me how cool it is to put your flyrod into the back of your subaru legacy/fishmobile without breaking it down, I think to myself (he sure does hate neatness!" Finally he adds triumphantly:
    "You know those roads that are all bumpy and you should only go on them with a 4 wheel drive?"
    MacRowdy: "Yeop."
    Jim: "Well I always drive on them with this subaru. I can take it anywhere!"

    Macrowdy,I just noticed that your story that your telling is starting to go away from the truth. Your starting to add things that are not there. I gave you all the facts but now you getting them mixed up.

    Quit trying to make me out to be a saint. You just saw my good side, wait until you see my bad side.

    Hey Roper,

    Good job. I've bagged a few nice trout with "Whitey's Secret Fly" too!

    Hey Old Man,

    We took a poll this weekend and we decided that you should change your screen name to "Grizzly Jim".

    And we all think you are fun to fish with, and we can't wait to do the SRC thing with you again on the Stilly!

    Hope you had a great weekend and yep, we are home from Chopaka. I will let Whitey make the first post about that.

    You'll have to ask Bill and Bob...

    My version of your secret fly was not exactly as you described...how much of a Carrie is really in the fly?
