I have been trying for days to nail down the best flight option for Scotland leaving 11-26 night time or 11-27 morning, returning 12-1. I have zero flexibility in these dates or must forfeit the trip.

If anyone is particularly good at working the online reservations game and I use your suggestion I am offering a new custom engraved and personalized (with your name) swingleaf Wheatley flybox as a token of my appreciation. I will also have a fly hand-delivered from the River Tweed in that box.

I can leave from Logan or Hanscom, possibly Manchester NH on 11-26 night, extend that to Providence, Worcester, etc on 11-27.

Thanks in advance.

Thank you everybody for all the kind assistance.

I awoke this morning at o'dark thirty to try again and found that the 7-day advance window for some of the more affordable (yet still grounds for marital unrest) we gone as well. You snooze you lose, I thought those fares were bad, the best today are much worse.

But, I very much appreciate all the help and concern but I am going to have to pull the plug on this dream trip. I currently have "both bosses" questioning my dedication right now, and the $$ impact with two kids in college is more than I can bear.

It was a last minute, once in a lifetime opportunity but the parameters could not work out.

Well, gotta go - the car is all warmed up in the garage and I need to go sit in in and sulk for three or four hours with the windows rolled up ;)

:chuckle: Mjyp -

You raise a good point though, what happens to "the stash" if and when we go on to the big boulder garden in the sky?

I've seen garage sales where relatives are selling the deceased angler's stuff at outrageous prices and anglers who happen to be driving their wives around the neighborhood are scoring bigtime from the misfortune.

I looked at my wife and asked her in the event I perish, NEVER sell my stuff at a garage sale like that! :)

I would like it to be held until the next of kin is born with the same degree of infatuation for flyfishing so it continues to see time on the water in appreciative hands.
