BTW - steely pics wanted
It's easy to put up images, just read the 'book' (icon for help above). When you land that hawg hauzer, post a scan for us vicarious steely addicts from afar. Heck, even scenery shots from the PNW do it fer me.

Talking about scenery, we get some awesome stuff on Cape Cod during season. Patagonia images from Luis were pretty amazing too. I'll ask Dave Boucher to take a lot of shots from his upcoming Keys trip... and not of the cross-dressers.

RE:For Juro
Hi, Juro,

I getting ahold of Tim Purvis ASAP and see if he can send you the scans we originally used for my (now defunct) Have Boat Will Travel web site. Tim did a beautiful job with them.

Meanwhile, I'm sending you more slides and a couple of prints. I think I have your address around here somewhere, but if not, could you please resend it.

Sorry I've taken so long to get going on this, but I've been way too busy at work. Hope to get some quality stream time in soon.

When are you going to go public with this, and I'll let my friends know.

My apologies to forum members who read this. It's my surest way to contact Juro.

Petri heil,

RE:BTW - steely pics wanted
Got back a couple of pics from the Snake in October. the first is the first steelhead I ever caught on a surface fly: a riffle hitched purple muddler.

The second is a fish that came to hand 20 minutes later. It came up and looked at the muddler but would not come back. I tied on a black fly of my own design and greased lined it over the lie and the fish just exploded on it.

What an attractive couple! That hen is sleek and her hues are beautiful, that buck is chunky and all business. Must have been a fun-filled hour.

Just love the fall dryline steelhead fishery, what more could a freshwater angler ask for than trophy sized trout on top? Any trout longer than a Spey rod handle is a handful, and I love my 7136-4 Sage too.

Now to find something to clean up all this drool off my keybd!

Great pics Duggan,
Now what we need is pictures of rivers scenes with you battling a leaping steelhead, caught in mid-air, with the ghost of Roderick Haig-Brown in the background.
Seriously, keep the pics coming. Some of us desperately want to be out there, a pool ahead or a pool behind you.
BTW what weight and length Sage are you using?

Right now all I have is a 9140-4. I keep switching back and forth between saving for a 8150 or a 10150 or possibly the 10151. This week I am leaning towards the 8150. Next week, who knows?

Very Nice! Reminds me of my own adventures over in Snake River country last fall.

And the spring native was a worthy contest winner - sleek and bright!

Next stop - the Sauk -

I have an unfished 8150 that I can't wait to try out on the Merrimack for Atlantic Salmon. You understand, it is only practice for the Olympic Peninsula. The early sessions have gone well, but you don't know the rod until you have had a serious fish on the line.
Hopefully we can post some East Coast pics in trade.

Jay -

I look forward to the Merrimack salmon trip with you next month after the flows recede from the thaw. If you are serious about the PNW trip this fall, let's make arrangements.

I'll be splitting time between Vancouver Island and Washington state around the end of August.

Can't wait!

Jay C. 03-08-2000 01:04 PM

RE:BTW - steely pics wanted

The Merrimack is a definite go. Just pick a time and let's do it. The upper reaches above FD are open so an exploratory trip is in order any time now.
On the second topic; PNW, with plenty of notice, I can committ to any time in late August/early September. What did you think about a full multi-media article out of the adventure?

I'll call,

Jay C.

Beautiful pics of beautiful fish, Duggan. These are not steelhead but what the hell... a little peek at what's coming to the Flyfishingforum over the next few months 8^)

Hi Andre:
That would be a mouse. The picture is a bit bluish to bring out the blue halos of the brookie.

Doublespey 03-09-2000 10:03 PM

Drowned Rodents?
Yeech! I'm not even sure I want to ask why there's a dead mouse in this picture. Hey . . . is this Luis from FF@??? Great pic of you with that fresh water dorado!
