Hey there,

not too sure how to go about this but...

I am going to be in New York, staying in Manhattan for a week from feb 14th. Is there anybody from New York in town that week? I think I may be going to Vermont for the weekend, a spot of ski-ing to be had [any of you from Vermont?], but I would be interested to meet some of you guys in the flesh if you're up for a coffee or a couple of beers...

What about it?

Also a mate of mine just landed a job in New York (it made a couple heart stopping runs, but he brought it safely to the net), he will be working on a project to measure juvenile fish stocks under brooklyn bridge [how cool is that?!]. The job's based in the Marine science Research Centre ( <a href="http://www.msrc.sunysb.edu/" target="_blank"><!--auto-->http://www.msrc.sunysb.edu/</a><!--auto--> )at SUNY, I told him some one from this forum might be able to give him the low down on the fishing scene. He will be staying in Long Island. Any takers?

Hey Milo,
If you're going to come near Boston drop me a line. Boston is not enroute between NY and Vermont, and there's no fishing in Feb. of course. You would have to go 3-4 hours east and then back off of your route for a coffee. But hey if your willing I'll hook up with ya seeing how I'm coming your way in Sep. (BTW, I met Peter O'Reilly and bought his book, what a man).
Do you like the Irish Trad. music by any chance?

Terry,
Make sure you drop me your Irish trip details so I can say 'hi' somewhere(or multiple somewheres) along the route. When I get to NY I won't be alone (its the dreaded Feb 14th thing, but it ensures peaceful fishing for the remaing ten months of the year)and doubt i will be able to wrangle permission for an unscheduled furlough.

Peter O is quite a guy alright, he works with me here in the CFB although he is never in the office (always fishing, or at a fishing show, or on his way to go fishing somewhere else). Actually I think he may be in the States next week, is there a big FlyFishing show in NJ?

With regard to trad sessions I know a a few places where the regulars play every night...
Talk to you soon,
Mylo
PS if you need any angling maps, brochures etc I can send them on... and that goes for all on the forum.
