Retirement Fishing Party Rocky ford in Feb

#1
To all.

I have request my retirement from the Coast Guard after 22 years of service. Looks like my retirement will be July 1st.

So, I am getting a few friends and my brother to hit Rocky Ford for a great last fling. We will be staying over night in Ephrata! I will post when actual date is.

It will be just an eventful day, fun talking, fishing and getting to know one another. I hope not to be loud and annoy anyone, but if anyone knows me I like to have fun. I take fishing serious, but fun is always apart of my seriousness.

My family and I will be moving back to Chesterton Indiana (July), so anyone in the area beware I will be back and lets get up together and have fun!

Jerry,

Understand that whole heartedly! Would be great if you could show but understand. Would love to be with you at some of your visits. Just give me a message and I would love to be there, in uniform if necessary !

P.S. by the way I am going through some of my fishing stuff and will have some things to donate to the cause. I know I could get money for this if sold but to donate back to your cause means a lot more. I will have some rods and reels going your way!

What takes you to Indiana and away from the fishing mecca of the Rocky Mountain West?

Congratulations on your retirement. 22 years is no small accomplishment...thanks for your service. As a recent 26 year retiree, I can definitely say life gets better. Enjoy!
And dependent on the date, I may be a "show" as well.

I'd like to participate, but may not be fully-recovered from surgery on my casting arm. Please keep me posted. Congrats on your pending retirement.

Again thank you all for your replies. I am leaving today for 3 weeks to go to LA/LB area for CG Inspections. Will be back around the 25th Jan. By then I will have a more definite date on when we will be going over and will post.

Have a good Jan fishing! cause I will have no time while in LA/LB, maybe may go to the casting club and see what's brewing over there! If I cant log on while away I will have my brother "John Wallace" post for me.

Damn. My casting mentor is leaving me? I'm destined for a life of collapsing loops and skunkings.

I'm there
