For 2012 (~April 21-28) we will be heading to the great American Rockies & Cascades… specific locations are to be revealed. Clear your calendars and dust off your waders.
The core/anchor activity will be fly fishing. If you know how to fish, you’re going to nirvana. If you don’t yet have the bug, prepare to be introduced to a passion that will consume you for the next 30 years.
You all may remember Mark Kidd (aka “Krow”), his father Phil ran a lodge here up until a few years back and is a premiere guide putting many into fish. Kro’z dad has offered some recommendations and will be influential in pointing us in the right direction… it is a little early in the season for many spots/hatches, but we’ll leverage sound advice and point in the correct direction.
I’m rethinking the fishing lodge angle, not sure yet…. I now believe that the budget will be reduced, and address the following items: fishing guides/licenses, RV, food, gas, general chicanery etc. and therefore be roughly $1-1.5k total, but we’ll see….
There is a high likelihood of RV travel and miscellaneous meandering through America’s western splendor.
Many details, such as peripheral activities, twisted contests and highlights will be shared in the near future. Stay tuned, configure your RSS.
Currently we have responses from the following:
- Completely in: Joe. Bob, Wyatt, Rob (Your H.M.), Ian
- Likely in: Nuby, Olson
- Maybe in: Kro, Keith
- Clueless: Jof, Ruppert, Dahill, Mark, Gibson, Mike, Miller, Jagger
For those of you who drag your heels or flake annually, sign up and don’t be the kooks that you generally are…
Your 2012 HM,
Looks like a killer road trip boyz, maybe this trip we will have a nice HD camera for Rob’s closeup of his fish choice at the local Safeway.
