Only two days this year? What happened to Sunday? And Meiser?

I fish because the voices inside my head tell me to.

First time attendee! Making the trek over from SW Montana. Purchased my ticket for the afternoon training.
Just purchased an Echo Trout Spey 4wt 11’.

Was hoping to fish a day or two after the clinic. For early May, would a sinking or running line be ideal? Trying to get my ducks in a row before I get there.

TY

Well, I haven't been able to go for 18 years and I miss it, too. We only thought that perhaps a dozen or two would show up at the first one, but I think we were might have topped a hundred. Too bad it's nearly 2500 miles away.

I think your best bet is to hold off on buying anything else till you get there. The Fly Shop is right there close by, plus, tons of helpful vendors will be happy to get you lined out with exactly what you need. I am usually much better equipped after a good Clave that before I go Good luck! You will have a ball.

It rains in the PNW!

bring waders, rain jacket, even gloves, chair for the riverside, etc. It can be cold at times, as well as wet. On the other hand.......

Just be ready for anything.
