schlemoc,
  The best I can tell you right now is to keep watching the boards, come to the Night Before (if you're in the area), and see what turns up.  For the last 4 years we have had about a 8-10% no-show figure so that MAY leave 8 spots open.  But so far we have had no dropouts.  We do have 4 on the wait list right now counting you.

Wonder if I will be the only one fishing a noodle rod with a fly?  Feel free to pair me with anyone you want.  Looking forward to this.  Will be my first fishing trip of the year for Steel.

Indi,
I don't know if this will help as you organize the teams, but I am going to be fly fishing, but still have not landed a steelie with a fly rod.  Ive landed plenty with flies and noodle, but never on the fly rod.  I have only tired it 3 times, then I get frustrated and go back to what I know-noodling. 
So if you want to put me with someone who is more experienced, that would be great. 
Alex
PS-I'm the guy from the oil creek outing you helped catch a rainbow on the fly rod in less than ideal conditions with the attractor fly. 

"Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will make you fishers of men."

I'll be doing the same . I like using the noodle to cover more water and not mind the crowds as much . Already got a taste last Sunday pulled 2 steelies from Lower Elk (1- 7lb hen , 1 - 5 lb male) . They are real finicky right now in the high water temps / water clearity but may be coaxed . Lost one fish to some tree branches. Tight lines - DC

Jamey said he'd like to get paired up with someone who knows the area. He only fishes Erie maybe twice a year and not very experienced with the fly rod as well.
 
I'll be with my wife like you posted.

Jack, this is going to be the biggest and the best. I,m with Gizmo(Tom) , I think. Can,t wait to get on the water again. Bring up the old rod so I can show it to Giz. Thats ok if it isn,t finished, never be used anyhow.  I,m going with a caddis. Slammed them last Jan. on them. No droppetrs allowed , right?

Mika,
  I'm having a *&%$# of a time finding a good ferrule.  I'm about to take one from another rod I have to repair (my own).  I want it to be done for the "One Fly".

Personally, I don't really care if I catch anything or lose my fly. I'm just looking forward to a great time. And I promise I won't break it off in the parking lot. LOL

I don't give a crap if anybody listens to me or not.

I'm not a newbie. I catch my share. If you want to pair me with someone inexperienced, that would be OK. I know places to go, and can haul someone else and their gear. The only fear that I have is that I normally go through a lot of flies, and I do not have any idea how I'm going to last very long. Give me someone young who can climb a tree for my fly!

PAFISHERMAN1981,

It's an annual thing held (usually) on Columbus Day weekend!  I don't think my nerves could take tyring to organize another one every year.  But there is the Oil Creek outing in the spring.  Keep watching the boards if there are any cancellations I'll post them up.

Could you let me know if anything happens and you need someone?  Do you mind if I come up anyway and observe.  I am new to fly fishing and love it and would love to share the experiences with pro fly fisherman like yourself. Thanks for you time.

Indy,
I'm assuming that's supposed to be Jamey with fishmonger on that team?

Kildeer,
    I've had three people mantion a Jamie, Jamey, and Jamey in their replies so I picked one to match up with fishmonger (yours) since fish is very experienced and you said your Jamey needed a partner.  Is there a change? 
 
  PAFISHERMAN:  There is always a chance.  I'm sure nobody would mind if you followed and observed and asked questions.

Kildeer,
    Fishmonger is a very experienced fisherman who has a lot of good info to impart.  I am very glad he agreed to take an "newbie" and if your buddy Jamey pays atention he could very well wind up in contention.  I tried to match folks up acording to friendships and abilities.  Should be very interesting.

tippy,
    how do you want to be teamed up?  And if you need a fourth I have many willing volunteers.  I simply cannot believe how big; how fast, this thing has become.  Frankly I'm a little scared that some people migh be disappointed.  Be kind to an old man guys!

mika,
    Just wanted to ask you to bring the rod to the Night Before if you come.  I'm thinking of displaying some bamboo and yours is a nice one.  BUT it won't be the only one ,  , ,  Hint hint..  I'm going to TRY; notice the word TRY,  to land a steelhead on a dry fly and a bamboo rod!  Can you say crack?  I hope not!   Haven't you used the Big Rod yet?  I figured you would have taken at least some stripers on it!  Don't you dare! !   I may need some help with the registration if you can.
