Skagiteers in Newaygo

Mark your calendars...May 8th, the SATURDAY of Mother's Day Weekend, Ed Ward, Mike McCune and Scott O'Donnel will be performing "live on stage" at Henning Park from 9-2 with a tuition school at an undisclosed location from 3-7. The "Skagit Clave" will be free of charge, but you will need to pay the park entrance fee of $5.
The school is limited and the fee is $175. Contact the Great Lakes Fly Fishing Co at 800-303-0567, or email [email protected] to reserve your spot, (Mark, you're in and let me know if you are bringing your Mom).
More info to follow,
Bob

Jon

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

Very cool. What do we need to do to convince Glen that the shop wants to buy another pig?

Let me get this straight! All of us "also rans" get a rare opportunity to have 4 hours with some of the Best Talent within, ney originator of, the "discipline" and you have the audacity to question a nominal fee that works out to approx $14.60 per hour for the neophytes?????? I don't care if there are 100 students in attendance, the price and the opportunity to have access to such talent make it what a "Good Old Cloth Coat Republican" I once knew (God rest his soul) would call a "Deal Deal". Am I missing something here?? Certainly this is not a vailed attempt at humor? I don't hear anyone laughing!

To be sure, we ought to take our hats off to the Gentlemen of the Local Constabulary that are making this possible and do something befitting such an accomplishment . . . like send them some aged single malt; name a fly after them; introduce them to some warm and lovely "Wood Nymphs" one might know; etc.

Appreciatively & Humbly,

Fish Bear

Relax fish bear! I'm sure the guys at the shop knew it was a joke as they know me well.

Humor is a good thing and life should be treated as such. Bob and Glenn both know that I was having fun.

When this site starts becoming way to serious and uptight to not have some fun then it's time for me to find another site. Pretty sure that this will not happen on this site since it is filled with a bunch of great people that know fun is fun.

Last, if I rubbed you the wrong way I'm am truly sorry for that.

Bob will you ever forgive me? Will a big goup hug take care of things?
