Skip,
    What's that bolt sticking out the back for?  Is that where you attach the counterweights for lead tip line?

Indy,
My buddy Jamey (who came up with me last year) would like to come up again for this if there's still room. So it'll be him, me, and my wife coming up this year.

Some people are like Slinkies...not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you see one tumble down the stairs.

Skip,
   I figured it all out.  If it takes 10 minutes to cook a burger at 300 degrees;  all we have to do is crank that sucker up to about 1200 degreees and you'll be able to cook 'em in 2.5 minutes.  FOFLMAO!  Looks like the call will be going out for another grill.

Gentlemen,
       I am sorry to have to report that I have to close the entry list.  With the 50 confirmed attendees and the unconfirmed who may attend and want to be on the standy-by list we have achieved maximum participation for this years event. 
     For those of you who didn't get in on time I am truely sorry but we do not have the physical area to accommodate more people.  Keep watching this post and I can put you on a will call (if you want) in case somebody cancels.   Thank you for your understanding regarding this.

Genlemen,
      I would like to take this chance to encourage all those who signed up for the "One Fly" to attend the "Night Before the "One Fly" meet and greet being organized by PxaTim at Crowleys Resturant (next door to the Green Roof Inn)  on Friday the 10th of October from 6 till (?)  It will be an excellent chance to get to see the other competitors, make up teams and generally shoot the bull (something we used to do for about three hours before the start before I moved it up.  See the posting for the Night Before the "One Fly" for information.

Gentlemen,
    I hope most of you are following the posts on this thread because I just came upon something.   Think about this:  Since many of us want to do our best on the "One Fly" we will be breaking out our best, most special, secretest flies for the event.  Now since we have 50(+) folks signed up  , , , the "First Out" will walk away with about $70-100 dollars for a fly box and 50 flies.  I was thinking about that while I was sorting door prizes.  So I have to repeat myself:  "No fair breaking off in the parking lot or on you partners' ear "accidently" on the first cast."  LOL!

should've just kept it a secret and just threw it on the miserable person starting to get drunk already from catching nothing or close to it 

If the world needed and enema, they'd put the tube in Philadelphia. Go Pens!

cool,
    Even though many of the entrants get skunked, and catch nothing; it has become a bit of a badge of honor to come back with your original fly.  Even more so if you actually catch something.  The First Out prize was intended as a "booby" prize and has turned into something nice.

Thank you again for responding to my PM ! I will make up four little fly boxes for the kids that do come! I will put a dozen flies in each box. This means that whether I fish in the one fly or not I will see you there on Oct 11th, 2008. Again, I just want to meet some of the guys from this board. Keep me posted on any openings that would occur for me and my buddy. Thank you again and may your fly rod always be bent!

May your fly rod always be bent!

Gentlemen,
I am trying to get the approximate teams together and I have 29 already.  I will list them below.  Now what I would like to know is there anybody who has a preferred teammate other than the ones I have listed?  Also how many newbies need a partner, and how many experienced anglers will volunteer to A:  Mentor a newbie team  or B:  Team up with a newbie for the contest.  If you are mentoring you will still be eligible for all the prizes except the team event since there will be three people on that mentored team.  I figure I will need at least 4 mentors plus me.  Any volunteers will be very appreciated.

THE TEAMS:   Skeeter (my grandson) - fisherofmen  -  Bughawk mentor  Team:  Bamboo 
 Cold  -  (+1)   newbies - Indsguiz mentor.  Team: 2 New
Erieboogieman - daughter  ( I think this is last years' 2d place team and the female winner)
 Bowmandjk  -  grandson
kildeer  -  Wife
Clinchnot  - wife
Fisherchic  -  husband  
Mjb4864  -  (+1)
222 - (+1)
Mikastorm - Gizmos
Old Brown trout - Woolybugger
Ax - Dream catcher  (noodlers)  Team:  Flosser
Team:  Portage  (no names)
Avidangler - eye of horus
paxtim - cooljauman   Team:  Tuna
fishmonger - Jayme   Mentor - newbie  (could be a dark horse)
rollcaster -sage 4wt
fishin coyote - worm waster  Last years' winners
Rex-of-Angli - Anadromus
John Hogsett Sr. - Jr.    Team:  Horseflies
Rick Frisco - Dave thomas    Team:   Fly BY
Mook14 - D-nymph    Team:  Lab
MJB4864 - Richie
Gadaboutgaddis - partner
KJH807 - Jokerball
schlemoc - doubletaper
tippy-toe - doughnut #1
doughnut #2  - doughnut #3
Dano -genieman
Mikeg - Essox hunter
Youghman - jamie C.

This list is the list of all the teams I know of, except 2, and I'm waiting on confirmation.  That's a total of 30 teams 60 folks.  WOW!

If there are any other teams that I am not aware of please let me know cause after a few days I'm going to start drawing based on the feedback I get from eveyone.  There will probably be much room for switching right up to the morning of but I'd like to get some idea where we stand.   Thanks guys (and girls).

FYI:  We have had some AWESOME prizes donated and I believe everyone will leave with something , like last year.

If there is an opening from someone not being available, I would like to get on the waiting list.  Either way I plan on making the trip up to see everyone on here and maybe toss a few flies around.
