Hi, an unfortunate heads up :

I am not an official representative of GGACC nor Spey-o-Rama but am on the mailing list and received a notice this morning that, like many other large public events in northern California and San Francisco specifically, SOR 2020 has been cancelled as a consequence of the ongoing health crisis.

this shows me that if there is the slightest chance of an even slighter danger folk will pull the pin.
it's the world we live in now where nothing is your job bar holding your hand out and expecting it to be filled.

basically if there's a possibility someone will not have to fulfil their obligation they will not.

I remember a very little fog in smithers. the plane could land fine enough... they must've been union pilots.
three raindrops on your rolling paper and it's time to go home.

so let's cancel everything, including the cure. that'll show us.
should just cancel the damned television.

jfc,
shawn

ps. who wants tom "let's take a selfie" hanks back?

That is too bad, but given the circumstances I think it’s the responsible thing to do. As they say “an ounce of prevention...” This is but a minor inconvenience compared to say, Italy, where they have now closed ALL STORES except groceries and pharmacies. I’m sure this is still a major bummer for some who had already made travel plans though, and I do sympathize. Just had a planned fishing trip with my father fall apart due to travel concerns on his part (high risk, concerns about ending up stuck in quarantine, etc). Definitely sucked, but probably for the best.
Fingers crossed that things will stabilize soon!

That's too bad.

With the apparent impending apocalypse, glad to have a world class fishery 5min from the house and plenty of shoreline to stay at least 50 meters away from the next angler....I guess I just need to gather up a few rolls of toilet paper for my wading bag tho?!?!?
