nice Eric. If we get the weather they are predicting, it may be a little dicey up there...

The forecast for Saturday is a high of 48 degrees and a 60% chance of showers. More like steelhead weather than trout fishing. The flow was 1100 cfs yesterday and down to 315 cfs today.

Eric,

To the other Eric (Crepuscular) and I, really bad weather just means bar food and beer, followed by all night tying sessions back in the room with more beer, and a lot of beer induced fishing BS. :)

"Yeah Spence, the way Datus Proper ties that wing is pretty and all, but too damn difficult. I just wrap the damn thing and snip off the bottom hackles
With scissors. Done!"

Spence replies, "Damn! Must be time to go to bed. These are our last two beers. Hell! It's almost time for Jonas to make our breakfast."

Haha yep, that's all too familiar!

By Jonas I'm assuming you mean from the Feathered Hook? Isn't he just a peach? I love that shop.

I feel bad for the guy, someone should have given him a pair of scissors. ;)

Maybe I should write a book, "What the Drunk Fly Tier Said"...

Actually, you would of had to have been there. :)

Jonas...Yes. I have a friend that goes there from here every year for Drakes. He likes to tell people that if you did a police style line up of guys, including Jonas, and you asked which one's the fly shop owner or which one's heading off to jail tomorrow, Jonas would be the latter. :)

He is a lot of fun, and cooks up a mean breakfast! Even for this vegetarian...Though I was concerned when he said, just sit down and don't look at the stove...:)

Maybe there are times when you shouldn't be playing with scissors...You think? :)
