Open seat- Basin lakes opening weekend

#19
It appears that the seat may be filled, pending some confirmation details. If anything changes I'll be sure to post it up.

I'd certainly jump at the chance to meet/fish with any others who are heading to the area, so perhaps we can figure a way to meet up!

Jeff, best of luck with the new job!

Keith, if you want to ride over with I'm sure we could figure something out. If Jay takes the seat, as I'm just awaiting confirmation of, I'm sure we could easily get another craft in my truck no problem.

Steve, hopefully we'll be able to connect one of these days!

Trip,Wayne, Rod..... We'll get a PM together before then and see if we can meet up

I'm looking forward to fishing with and learning a few things from Nick, Ira and others. Now just need to figure out which rods to bring. Thanks Nick!

Jay, 5 wt's a good starter but if you have a number of others you want to play with...... have at it. I usually find that 3 or more rods in the boat is a bit unwieldy. I'm not a big fan of breaking them. Chronies - 5 wt and a floating line. Most anything else - 5 wt and a sink 2 or intermediate line. (just my opinion)

Not sure whose turn, but works for me. I have to figure out what I'm taking - sold my Assault. Might be getting a SFC instead. Or maybe I should buy my old boat back?

Wayne

Sure. $400 and it's yours. Again ;). I am excited to get back up to Lenice and the opportunity to use the flies from the Winter Lake 3 swap.

I can't imagine going out with only 3 rods strung up! What I find much more unwieldy is trying to catch out spools/lines while out in a 10' pram. Especially when there are happy fish nearby. Ira and I have easily had 10-12 rods out in my pram and haven't broken any.... Ok, we did break 1.... But that was only because my fat ass set the hook a little too hard and fell over backwards, damn near tipping us over in the process. That had little to do with an abundance of rods. lol

Did you buy the triple double quadruple rod endorsement available only to chronie fishermen?

I'm planning on being at Lenice on Sunday and fishing a couple days. If it's a bust I'll try Quincy or some of the others near by. If the weather cooperates I'm staying the week to fish several lakes and then shoot a pistol match in Ephrata the next Sat. If anyone is fishing past the first weekend let me know and I'll try and meet up.

I think I mentioned I will be at Lenice on the 2nd for the day - only ice will keep me off (you guys too). Pretty sure Scott S will be there as well.
the circus will be in town!

Hey Nick/ Ira -
Here is what I'm thinking for rods/lines:
4wt with cortland camo intermediate
5wt floater with longish leader for indicator fishing
5wt floater for long line heavy nymphs (Phil Rowley 'naked' fishing)
5wt with type 6 sinker
also have a 6 wt if we want to chuck big streamers, or a 7'6" 2wt,and a 8'6" 3 wt just for fun.
Looking forward to it, hope the weather cooperates.
Cheers - Jay

So 5wt floater with the indicator will be your main weapon of choice, but if you really want to we can find love for all the rest of the rods as well!
