    Hell Yeah!!! Then I could row my toon, troll a bugger, AND drink a beer (actually 2 beers) at the same time...totally the ultimate experience.

    I'll be there... with the Beerbelly. This thing has saved me a lot money at Mariners games.

    All that beer drinking you better invest in a beer recycling bladder to accept the recycled beer from your own bladder. Save a lot of time kicking back and forth to shore and timing your piss breaks in the woods so the unsuspecting public does not get a full monty.

    Anyone want to take an afternooon trip over to the middle fork of snoqualmie after work on Thursday? (that's tomorrow 5/20)

    I'm thinking about heading out of work around 3PM from the east side. I work in Bellevue and can pick someone up.

    I'm a beginner, but I promise I wont kick rocks upstream or bug you with a gajillion questions. Also, since i'm the newbie, I don't mind paying for gas. I'm headed out there anyhow.

    -Jesse

    Jesse - the current conditions would be pretty brutal for trying to fish on the middle fork. Especially for a beginner. The water is high and probably dirty. Fishing doesn't get consistently good or easy up there until the water is below 1000 cfs (it's 3800 now) and cleans up a bit - usually after the 4th of July.

    By all means, go check it out though - just don't be discouraged if you have a rough outing.

    Keep watching the flows (http://waterdata.usgs.gov/wa/nwis/u...&format=gif_default&period=7&site_no=12141300) for a few low days with consistent weather - you can probably get in a few decent outings in the next couple months.

    Pity, I was keen to go to Al's and tie flies. Trying to meet up with a bunch of strangers at Green Lake=not so much.

    We kinda figure that the whole idea is to fish, not just talk about it all the time. Don't see what's so horrible w/ meeting strangers while fishing. If possibly you feel safer meeting a bunch of strangers at a dive bar, I'm sure we will all be there sometime soon. :beer2:

    Thanks much for the advice. Flows site is bookmarked now. Oh well, at least that'll give me a darned good excuse when I inevitably get skunked ;) I'll be sure to stick to shore. I figure I'll still head out, any day out there practicing some casts is a good one for me.

    It's not a matter of fear, not at all, it's about logistics and chatting. I can go fish GL any time I want, but to meet some of the ppl from the forum in a social setting would be a lot of fun. I don't tend to chitter chatter much when fitchin'. Plus, how does this work? Hop in your toob and kick around asking ppl if they are from the forum?:rolleyes:
