Please sign up if you are planning to attend the POC One Fly. We need to get a headcount so that we can match boats & people. We REALLY need people with boats!!

I have made reservations at the Pequod House http://www.cottagecomp.com/pocrental/index.html . I also have Kelley Hazen down for a spot there.  We have room for about 3 more people. It's nothing fancy, but it's inexpensive and comfortable. Contact me directly if interested.

I'm on the list! Ready to go... no boat but gas money and a beer cooler.
Is that a strike indicator or a bobber?

Unfortunately I wont be able to make it at all that weekend - my better half is away traveling and I will have three wild animals to take care of - and I am not talking about the dogs.

Sorry you guys can't make it.  Here is what I have for fishers and boats.

!.  Kelly's Boat
        Kelly H.   Staying at Trailer
        Mike Q.   Staying at Trailer
        Scott B.  Staying at Trailer (Not Confirmed)

2.  Mike G. Boat - Staying in RV
        George S.  - Staying at Trailer

3.  John P. -  Staying at John's RV 
        Dennis A. -  Staying at John's RV
        Andrew P. (not confirmed) - Staying at John's RV

Fishers with boats:
John C.  opening for one (maybe fishing with Shelby - I need to confirm)  I do not know their accommodations

We might need some more people with boats.

Fishers Listed on the sign in sheet
Travis R.  May fish with John C (if Shelby isn't fishing) I do not know his accommodation needs yet.

Please visit this site at least in morning and night to see if there is any change in the outing status.

NOTE: I am hoping all of this rain will flush out the back lakes and the brown shrimp. Fishing could be incredible in a few weeks.
