Thumbs up Midwest Gathering on The Muskegon.......

It's time for everyone to mark their calender for the weekend of March 28th 2009 for The Midwest Gathering on The Muskegon River.......

I debated on having this the weekend of the 14th when Walleye season was still open, but we don't need no stinking Walleye to eat good and gather for another fun filled free Spey weekend on the Muskegon.

This time I will sip the Scotch rather than DRINK it and not be the first one to bed.......

As always, it's an open invitation to everyone to come on up, down, or over to my place on the Muskegon for a free weekend of fishing, tying, and sometimes shooting near Newaygo.

If you have been here before, you are welcome to come and bring friends, and if you haven't been here before........ You are welcome to come and bring friends also....... I'm throwing open the doors to everyone that has or wants to explore what the Muskegon River and surronding area has to offer.

Bed space is limited so bring a cot or a bedroll if you have one, or you can lay claim to a couch, floor space, or talk my German Shorthair into giving up her "nest".
Please bring your own personals, a towel, sleeping bag, and pillow. I have a full kitchen and laundry facilities. My house is yours for the weekend. We can plan meals, or everyone does their own thing.

If you bring feathers to tye with, my dog likes to "play" with them so pack them with this in mind.

You can stop by for an hour, a day, or the entire weekend. You are welcome to use the place as a "Home Base" to fish from, or just sit inside and stare at the river. Your choice.

I'm taking Friday March 27th off work so early attendees can arrive Thursday evening and stay untill Sunday evening..... or later. I enjoy the company and I think I have more fun hosting these than the people attending.

The Steelhead run should be going strong........ The weather and river levels are anybody's guess, but I'll bet it will be warmer than it has been and I hope most of the snow will be gone........

Jamey McLeod has once again agreed to be the contact person, or you can E-mail or PM me as well.

I hope to have a full house once again,


Joe

Joe,
Sounds like another good time to be had! Thanks for doing this!

Can I claim the same room that I had this fall? I'll be in touch.

I'm in!


Joe,

I'll try to set a better example drinking Scotch the first night, so you don't have to try to out do me the next night. Wouldn't mind getting some fishing in this trip also.

Thanks for the invite Joe. Had a great time at the last gathering. Maybe I'll bring my cousin Diane and Dennis. They were at the clave and Diane won the Sage reel. She sure is the lucky one. She is getting very good at tying flies and she could pick up a few pointers from Gary. See ya in March

I'd keep her away from Gary , really. It would be good to see her though.

Keep me posted on the big lake stuff, I still have the place out by the lakeshore. If your out that way you always have a place to crash.

Two handed rods, swung flies, bird dogs and the 45th parallel. That's my happy place.

Hi Joe

Hi, it's me, Diane, the "lucky one" with the Sage reel. I would love to come to your gathering but that is the only weekend I cannot make it. I am planning on coming out sometime in March to buy my rod from Bob when the "Rogue River" thaws so that I can try it out first-he's a great guy. I'll probably bring Dennis and Mark-maybe we can get some people together-I am dying to stand in a river again (with my own SPEY rod)! I hope you all have fun.
