Well I am back in old Seattle and wanted to extend my thanks to everyone I met out there. Great group of guys and I really enjoyed myself. Now it is getting really hard to tell my wife there is nothing for me to do if we moved out east :)

Will never forget talking on the cell to Juro and telling him there are no fish here only to look into the water as a 100 foot pod of stripers come cruising by. 10 minutes later I had a 31 incher. The flats ninja can even find fish 100 miles away...

Hit my goal of catching at least one keeper while I was there and just had a great time overall. Looking like I will be back again in late July for my PHD in Flats Fishing and hope to see some of you guys again.

I also made it into the CAC! Very sweet and nice place John.

Great meeting you JimW and thanks for the ride in the boat. Nice ride you have there and hopefully it will not be the last time I get to cruise around with you.

I am having my wife mount all the great flies you guys gave me to hang on the wall. Lots of inspiration for patterns to use out here in the salt. Really great tiers and now I just need to find a wall big enough for Adrian's fly :)

Sean, it won't be the last ride. Too bad the weather got snotty on us. Good to meet you in person and ditto to roosters comments.

Sean great to meet and talk with you about Steelheading.
Was good to see Juro's eyes light up at the mention of Steelhead fishing. Will have to try it sometime.

Sean, it was great to meet you at the Friday night bash. Thanks for all you do to make this site a success!

Hope to see you out this way again in the near future. Who knows, I might even make it to the PNW one of these days ;)
