Do you want to lead it?

I'm sure we can get some interest.


Modified to explain the pictures.


Mike sent me the photos.  I'll update with more information later.

I have this collection of flies.  And yes, they work.

From Mike    "One has the picture of the six flies and case that I will give to the 20 people who called or signed up before the deadline.When they show up and register they will receive this in addition to the other gifts given out. I wish to thank them for helping me decide how much brisket to prepare. The other fly box will be given to the person drawn from the catch reports that are turned in before 18:30 hrs. There will be a good number of flies put into this box. At lunch there will be a drawing for a Stripping Basket."

I own the stripping basket, cutters, and the neoprene covers.  Ask me and I'll tell you how they work.

From Mike "This picture has a number of tools for sale at D7Ls and there will be a number of fly rods and reels to be sold at discount prices. All prices include freight and tax. Only cash and checks made out to 'Michael J.Arnold & Company'."

5 people signed up already!  2013-04-15


Those of us that are signed up early are being rewarded!

If your name was on the list before midnight last night, Mike is putting together a box of "killer" flies that he will give us when we sign in.

For the late folks, he will offer the same set for sale.


Went to D7Ls yesterday with Jim H.  (2013-04-13), and caught some fish.

Watching the 'gills drag the spider under again and again, only to see Jim "fish on" with a black popper.

Next weekend is looking good!


TFF was a success at this because of our volunteers:
Tony L.
Jim H.
Marcos E.
John P.

More details to post later.

We've been invited back in 2 weeks for fly tying.

Lessons learned:
1.   Make a driving plan and stick to it:
                    a.“We’ll drive to MM 20 and start looking for a place to fish”
                    b.“We’ll fish at each stop for 15 minutes, and if the fishing is only so-so, we’ll move on”
                    c. One vehicle takes the lead, and he has the “scout.”  The rest follow his lead.  Portable 2-way radios could come in useful here.
2.   Make sure that every vehicle knows who has what recovery equipment, and where it is.  Who has the chains, jacks, buckets, shovel, etc?
3.   Bring seat covers.  Folks will be getting in and out with sand and saltwater on them.
4.   Be prepared for the wind:
              a.  Back-up spinning or casting rods with lures.
              b. Sand anchors for the tents.
              c. A way to block the wind for cooking
5.   Bring a back-up fly rod.  The saltwater can play havoc on reels, and can do some damage to rods.
6.   Have a way to make the rods easily accessible.  A roof rack or other style of rod quick release holder is extremely important.  You may have to jump out and start fishing within seconds of seeing the fish, or the bait.

Topic Unlocked.


17 signed up?

We can do better.....

We now have 5, and possibly 6!

The classroom fly casting for this Friday is a GO !!


We have 17 people signed up as of 2013-04-10-1130.

We typically have 40+ show up for this event. 

Don't be bashful, sign up early.  Let's get a good count.  I would hate to have to feed folks hotdogs instead of brisket.


With you, Jim, and I, that will be 3. 

3 for a class of 20 will be stretching it. 

I think we need at least 2 more.

If we can't get 5 by Wednesday, I think we should pull out.

I have the link to all the trip's pictures.

Send me a PM and I'll share.

This should keep the "lurkers" from knowing where are the "good" spots are... :)
