Adrian ********* UPDATED *************

Decided three o'dark thirties in a row is too much for me so, after a lazy start I will be at the refuge around 10:00ish if not earlier.

striblue I wish I could make this but have a family commitement and will not be down until tomorrow morning. Someday in the future, years from now, I will hopefully be fishing at the same location and bunp into a solitary flycaster and we will talk about the fishing and flies and tides and then I hope to hear him say to me, " I love it down here, I took up fly fishing a couple years ago , after college and other stuff, but my first time down here and when I first saw flyfishing was when I came down on a Big Brother event...always thought about it over the years, and was drawn back, do you know anything about those events?"

juro Current Roster puts us each watching two pairs. This is really no problem, but be extra careful to have the Big Brother (or Sister) mind the safety element of this event. We can easily mind the fishing element for two pairs.

tomd and Ally

I have a fly rod, line basket and two spin rods to bring with the usual sluggos which should be more than adequate for getting two pairs fishing after lunch and before the inevitable wiffle ball championship game.

Top water has been very effective on the blues that are in the area too.

*** if there are any exceptions to the above please update now ***

BB Day

Juro, I'll be bringing my daughter Ally along, she most likely won't be helping so I'll be happy to pay her fare and for food.

juro From Molly Dinsmore June 17 at 4:05pm

At this point we have 12 matches signed up (24 people!).
So, for the schedule:

8:30 am: we meet Bigs and then caravan to park near Monomoy.

9:15-10:15: we do a nature walk/scavenger hunt

10:15-10:45: time for people to use the bathroom, we get lunch stuff, and meet you guys!

10:45 begin walk to area where we will be fishing!

--lunch, fish, games--

3/3:30 begin walking back to parking area.

Award ceremony?

ETD is 4 pm

Of course if you are going to meet the group there, please let me know so I won't be looking for you at the parking lot.

juro The rendezvous point for those who want to meet on locale will be the bluff area between the stage inlet and the cove. In other words, on the straightaway near the inlet but not at the inlet itself.

Once the morning plan for the kids is firm, I will post more info on possible morning activities.

Thanks Doc,

When I get back I'll take ya up on that offer

Quentin I'm still in. I'll be at Morris Island sometime in the morning and will fish up until showtime. Should be a great day for it!

I wasn't there last year, so when you say the bluffs to the right of the stairs, how far to the right are we talking? By the mansions before the first corner? Or down near the entrance to Stage Harbor?

Still in

Juro- I'm still in. I picked up an extra spin cast rod at Goose Hummock today, so should have two spin cast and two fly rods on hand.

Warren- Sorry to hear about your friend in KC. Safe travel, buddy. Hope to see you again soon for some happier times and a few brews.

Warren I have to bail on you guys, A dear friend has lost his battle with cancer & I will be in Kansas city at his funeral.

Juro sorry for such short notice
06-16-2010 11:53 AM
I miss this one also

Sorry guys,
I have the same excuse that Jim Simms has this year! My youngest, Jeff, gets married this weekend also! At least Jim and I can remind each other of Brad and Jeff's Anniversarys!
Good luck,

juro Molly reports 11 pairs (22 needing assistance). If we don't get 11 mentors we can double up as we have in the past. I'll take a final headcount later this evening so please update your RSVP's.

Weather is looking good, fishing has been good as well although migration is still on so they are moving.

Location will be the Monomoy Refuge, fishing will be in the afternoon after lunch on the beach during the incoming at the same location as last year - the bluffs at Morris right of the stairs.

More info to come.

juro Hey sorry guys - been in corporate for meetings and don't get up for air much this week. I will talk to Molly over at BB to see where things stand.

Post later, thanks and looking forward to this weekend! Fishing has been very good!
