ACK has "Demo Days" coming up soon.

You may want to hold off until you try a few out.

I like a 14 footer for the bays, but a 12 comes in very handy for small rivers.

Clarke Thornton Memorial?  Did something happen to Clarke?

No, but we are still celebrating him.  You'll have to ask Kevin for the whole story...

Can you hang it from the ceiling?

Or do you "know a guy?"

Kevin and Terri are amazing, with the gourmet lunch, flies and tips.

I've updated the driver/rider list today, but it seems one of the riders hasn't signed up yet.

I wonder who that could be?

From Michael Seery:
“An 8wt may be a bit large for the river. You really ought to consider a 6wt. You should be able to roll cast heavy flies, since, there is no real need to cast major distances.”

My camping plans:

In preparation for PINS, I'll be trying a few new things.

Don't forget to bring your food for Friday night and breakfast for Saturday morning, unless you really feel the need to make the trip to the town of San Marcos for breakfast.

I found my coffee pot, and dehydrated foods. 

My old style tent-cot will be what I plan to use this time, along with a comfortable folding chair.

I'll be on the way to the campsite as soon as I get my truck back from service Friday morning, and plan to be there only Friday night, hitting the road after fishing on Saturday.
