    I've lost track of who's fighting who, but I think the bout should be scheduled to coincide with the Testy Festy in late July.

    How about we can get some undercard fights and take this thing to the next level?

    I'll step up and challenge Jergens. Nothing against you, Joe, but from a purely entertainment factor our bout should be a real crowd pleaser. I'll even bring my yellow jump suit. You kick my arse, I buy you a beer, and we share a platter of fried nuts.

    Next fight?

    Id challenge Monti, But Im pretty sure I'm out of his weight class. If we do have some sort of event, I think its me and Jerry D for the heavyweight belt.

    I guess I take a different tack on all of this. I do strongly agree: there are no secrets, it's all public water, nobody owns any water or any knowledge of any spot, hatch, action, etc. (again, there are no secrets). That's not the point. The point is not about whether or not it's a secret, it's about pressure. Whenever anything gets hyped, it gets more pressure (e.g. more showing up at the same place at the same time because of hype). If you think that (pressure) is beneficial for a fishery or your enjoyment of it - then hype away. If not, then think about it. It's your right to post whatever you want. I'm sure I'll get flamed for this -- but please note: I'm not telling anyone what to do (to post or not), nor criticizing for posting, I'm just pointing out a correlation between hype and pressure. Just an opinion ... but I do believe I've seen the effects of it on a number of waters over the years.

    Yep James, the town is Rock Ridge so wouldn't it make sense that rock creek flows below it?

    I wont pick another fight with a MT local, 10 of em in Dillon would not man up, so I gave up. Had to beat Scoones up instead. Yard helped.
    No guns? Clubs? Knives or friends? What kind of fight is that? Jets vs Sharks? Its 2009 yo! Draw a fist on me, get shot in the thigh. Pretty simple.
    So what if Johnny works at the Merc, like its some secret! Be happy somebody is telling you over bloated douche' bags behind your computers there are some bugs popping, put down the snacky cake and be thankful, years back you would call the flyshops for reports acting like you were coming in to buy something, now they just give it to you on the web. Assholes, this was a dream of yours one day back as you sat in your dockers eating your fritos and calling flyshops for info while you looked at your days off. Thank you Johnny. And yes, I KNOW Johnny, I know the Persico's and consider them very good friends. Ever buy a map at the Merc? I made it. So there

    Bring it

    Yard? Are you kidding? You don't know where that is? In fact, I think when we drove by it I pointed it out! Did I really give those two next to me at the bar last night my phone number?
