They will start sooner than you think... early May.... Here is a picture of 5 guys on the very first Rip trip of a few years ago. All around HQ--"The Log"... Left to right, Dave Pearson, me, Jeff Roop, Juro (With waders taken off) and JimW getting 40 winks. Waiting for the rip to form. see http://www.flyfishingforum.com/chronicles/Pointrip2000/ripjournal.htm for the picture journal.

In spite of the lack of photographic evidence, I was actually there that day. That was my only rip trip. Great time.

Also remembered it took me all day to get the new "Esteys Swing" happening. By the time I did everyone was leaving, the boat had arrived. Roop and I were there with doubles hooked up as eveyone was halfway to the boat yelling back at us "C'mon you guys!"
