Sounds awesome - wish I could go! It would be hard to watch the Skagit flowing by, and drive over the Sauk and the Stilly on the way up... but still better than not being there.

I'd love to post pictures if you take any.

I will indeed take pictures. I know that several of the northwest best spey casters will be on hand. To see these guys put on a casting demonstration will keep my mind off the river and its contents. Please, all that can come, do so! It will be fun.
