    well, ok. Damned, well, I won't be going. Been one of my favorite rivers to fish since I was 3. Love that river. But, can't stand making a trip to it if I can't fish it. So I won't be showing. But, can give the person the whole scoop now. :D

    Steel - your wisdom and experience would be very helpful to many of the members of the board, myself I've only fished the river two or three times, although I usually catch at least one fish on it. Between you and LittleStone, you guys should be able to field all the briefing questions.

    I spent a lot of time in the Blacksburg area, as a couple of close friends went to Tech. I spent a lot of time exploring those streams in that region, and further north on the backside of Shenandoah NP in the George Washington National Forest. It most certainly is a different world down there, as much so, as you say, as the east and the west side of washington. Very different indeed.

    As for a time to meet, Tuesday is a REALLY bad day for me, as I work Sunday night, Monday night, Tuesday night, and Wednesday nigth, 8pm - 6am, and we're down to four people on night shift, so coverage is non existant. If you set the time to meet at 6 pm, I might be able to show early, hang out and shoot some pool and some shit, and head in to work later, maybe around 10 or so. Let me know whatever's easiest for the rest of the crew.

    One question............

    Bob...

    I resemble that remark! :rofl

    But let me clarify one thing. I may have lived in the South (although even that point is debatable from the perspective of an Alabaman or Georgian) but you cain't never BE a Southerner unless you's BORN a Southerner.
    Which...sigh...I warn't.
    But let me give you a quick larnin' 'bout the South...

    There warn't no "Civil War" as them Yankees claim...them book-larned fellers call it "The War of Northern Aggression." Most o' them good ol'boys what fought in the war was jus' protectin' their homes and farms from the Yank invaders.

    (An historical aside...An entire squad of conscripted Irish-American Union soldiers were hanged as deserters after they recognized they were killing poor boys and men who honestly believed they were fighting for their homeland. They did desert because they felt they couldn't bear arms against these brethren.)


    Some favorite Southern bumper stickers:

    "We don't care HOW you did it up North."

    "American by Birth, Southern by the Grace of God"

    "Help clean up the South - buy a Yankee a bus ticket home"

    Hey, don't get me started on my Southern experience. I even had a close friend for a while (from mid-70's to early 80's) who later was discovered to have been a long-time Klansman. I never knew...

    (He never hanged anyone, but I'm sure he'd have liked to. He had to give up his manufacturing engineering job after he was "outed" and started his own storefront business buying, selling, and trading "memorabilia" (as in Nazi, Civil War, etc.)

    As for Nawlins...well, the jury's still out on whether to claim that devils' playground for the South! But they will take all the Yankee money you want to spend down there in the meantime.

    Being that it's in Seattle I won't be able to make it as I hate driving in that city. Besides I have a little trouble driving at night and for me to drive down to Seattle I would have to be completely nuts.. Beside I like to drink beer but it has a tendency to go right through me So I would have to make at least 10 potty stops on the way home. So you guys have fun and just lift a glass or two to the Old Man.

    I an in for Monday @ 6pm. How will we recognize the group? Should we get them to reserve us a section near a big screen for the WFF boys? Upon arrival we just ask the servers for the groups location? Either that or we could all wear our waders....:beer2
