Has anyone on the forum participated in a "cast and blast" trip here in WA? I've been thinking about the one offered by Red's specifically, but would like to hear comments on that and other similar trips. What time of year did you go or would you recommend? The Yakama skwala hatch sure sounds like a good option. I don't know why it's taken me so long to get into bird hunting. I've always thought it a very cool sport and, like fly fishing, affords the opportunity to be out walking about in awesome places. Next to some select fly fishing TV shows (remember "The Spanish Fly"?), I loved watching "Hunting with Hank". Only a few trips under my belt and lot's to learn still (another set of WA reg's to digest ) ... keep the posts coming Roper!
