Re: Fishing With Forum Members
Back in 2008 I bought a used Hog Island drift boat and Davo offered to show me the basics of rowing, so we did a float together on the upper Green River near Pinedale, WY. Thanks again Davo for showing me some great tips in rowing a drift boat! That is where I first met Fysh and Davo. Since then we have floated a few times together on the middle Green and the South Fork. Since then I have fished with Clint (Cromney) and Josh (Kinger) on the middle Green a number of times with Fysh and Pam. Three years ago I did a float with Lambster on the North Platte over by Saratoga, WY and he was planning on returning last year but his house burnt to the ground so that trip was cancelled, we are trying to get that trip rescheduled. Last summer on a road trip out to Bend OR I met up with Kelly (gklissmeyer1) and he showed me his "No Tellum Spring Creek" and we fished together for a couple hours, we are hoping to get to fish with Kelly and his son this year. Last summer JJ (futuramille) was all set to come out to Sheridan, WY for a family reunion and he and I were planning on doing a float together on the Bighorn, but a project came up with his work and he had to cancel. Later on I had a trip setup to fish with Eric (Bighornflies) but then I had something come up and had to cancel (I'm hoping to get up there and finally meet and fish with him this spring. Last fall I fished with Kris (Crittergetter) on the San Juan. A couple years ago we had a trip planned for floating the lower Green below Flaming Gorge with Joni, Mojo, Fysh and Pam but the trip got snowed out, so I haven't had a chance to meet Joni and Mojo first hand yet, but someday! We have been talking for a couple years of doing a 2 day float together in the canyon section of the South Fork..............we're hoping it will come together this year! JJ (futuramille) and I have been planning on doing that Bighorn float, hopefully this will be the year, as well as finally getting to fish with Jimmie on his western state tour this summer. A couple years ago Davo and I had a float on the South Fork all setup with dorian.ducker (he isn't active anymore) but he cancelled at the last minute, but still came out to the launch site to wish us well (his wife was expecting so he didn't want to chance not being there).
Now that Allan (Pocono) is retired, maybe he will find time to come out west and do a float with us!
When JP (jbbfly) retires, I'm hoping we can finally get him over here from France to do some fishing with us!
