Had a great time and was happy to meet everyone, the sulfers started coming off around 6 but the fish never really started rising, had 1 hit on the dry and it broke me off on the hookset Thanks for the great time everybody cant wait till next year!

As always...whatta ya say? A blast for sure! Good Duuds, good foods, and a beautiful day. The fisherie community never ceases to amaze me. Never...anywhere....have I met such a high class caliber of genuinely good duuds. It was great to see the duuds I know, great to finally meet some I didn't.

I've got pages I could write about this....but VP wants to put up his own thoughts and ideas on his day, and I want to save that for him. He's tuckered out...but itchin to get his post up! I made him go to bed, he'll post tomm. So...for now....I'll just say...


THANKS GUYS!

A few pics I snapped today....


Skips reserved sign:



What you can't see that got cut off, on the bottom it says "Cold's the Man"




VP learning the roll cast....




Applying what he learned:







With a little poor instruction from me....and some good tips from yinz...he looks like a natural. I couldn't be prouder of him.






This duud was kind uneff to explain the finer points of snaggin' to the crew, as you can see....they were ALL interested:





Anytime I get to spend time with the fisherie guys, be it at a large picinic.....or  just a few of us out fishin'...are times that will be remembered forever....thanks for that.

James

By far the best yet! What a feast! Couldn,t sample it all.
Sure was great meeting up with everyone. Good meeting old friends and making new.
Did fair on the fish. Caught 4 and missed many.
Olive bugger for 2 and pheasant tail for the others.
For those that couldn,t make it, set your calender for next year.
Have a feeling it will be even bigger.

What an awesome event fellas. This being my first real gathering of the boys I finally got to put faces with names....What a great group of fishermen...
I gotta say you young bucks impressed me, FFPA,Cold, VP, HCS, SJ may have forgot a couple but even us old guys can learn something new......
The food was about as good as it gets..PORK....MMMMMMMMMMMM.....
I think it was 6point7 that said to me we have 30 guys who each brought enough food to feed 30 guys...
We could have fed the whole park.
 
I here a little about how nice my flies are sometimes, You fellas should look in DT's and Danos boxes, wow and thanks for the flies and net....
 
I have to send out a very special Thank You to Rapala11, giving me your fathers tackle box and the "Gator" rod still puts a tear in my eye that you would entrust it to me for my collection....THANK YOU......
 
Fishing was good as I think most were able to get a hookup or two.
I only caught two for the day and missed another half dozen..Should have paid attention to DT and put a nymph on a little sooner.
 
Didn't see anyone go swimming, although I think the muddy banks made for slick conditions...
 
Hope all made it home safe..
 
Thank You fellas for a very fine outing..
I think the biggest lesson I learned today was,
 
"""COLD IS THE MAN """...
 
 
 
You could just tell it was going to be a good day..

 
You ever get a chance to hang out with these two guys, don't pass it up if you want to learn a little about Flyfishing.

Looks like one heck of a time... glad you all had fun.  Memories to last a lifetime.

Had a great time... well worth the 5hr turned into 7hr drive on account of road construction. Rap, Skip, Jack, 6.7, deetz, doubletaper, FFPA, Dano, MO, Loopy... and everyone else. What a great time, great people food and shine. Can't wait to do it again at the One Fly.


Took the scenic route to Oil



6.7 and deetz



6.7 and I had non stop action for better part of the afternoon

I've never fished that water before yesterday... need to hit it again soon when a good hatch is coming off. Awesome place up there.

ya i fished it for the first time a few weeks ago with jim, dru and clev.  all the action was in the stretch below the bridge and then the section around the bend in that area.  they were very selective that day.  with some color in the water seems they let down their guard!

meh... yes and no. You could pick a few off here and there on various nymphs but once we figured them out there was one fly we were hooking up on consistently all afternoon.

I was not far from you all on Sunday.  Drove over to Drakes Well Museum and the water was still up high.  Not a caddis in the air, so we drove home, I was sick of buggers and nymphs by sunday.  What was the magic fly?  Last time we were up there, it was caddis emergers and parachutes.

I caught all mine on size 14 stoneflies tied by doubletaper. His are black and dark brown.There were a few bugs flying around...not many..caddis..blue wings...a lot of people thought there would be a hatch but it didn't happen. I can't believe I never fished this place before. It's close to home for me. Awesome food good people good scenery...great time. I got so relaxed I had a hard time getting motivated today.Mika cooks a mean burger. Troutslammer is a fishing machine...he fishes his azz off.Bing's is cool...he COULD be the Man if Cold wasn't..Cool people fer sure...71 GTO does a mean Ric Flair imitation
