Spring Clave 2002 - Rhody Old School
Peter Jenkins of Saltwater Edge has invited us to kick of the year (for those of us who did not make the early bird w/ Capt. Ray) down in the Narragansett Bay area.

The rough agenda would include morning fishing on the Rhody coast, mid-day gathering at Newport's swankiest fly shop, Jenks' place. Rumor has it that we'll have some top notch guests and instructors on hand at the store. Then we can enjoy a lunch somewhere along the strip in Newport to prepare for the famous worm hatch that night.

Several pro's have voiced an interest in chipping in and it promises to be a great time. Some may want to stay over to fish Sunday as well, we can figure out the accomodations plan as always.

Stay tuned for more details.

I'm fine tuning my flatwings and cinder worm patterns as I speak.

Adrian 04-24-2002 02:48 PM

Ray, thats cool - don't forget to bring along a few of those new organic flies too ;)

Quick question. I know from my travels around New England, I could be talking about the same fish as some one else and not know it due to the different names of the fish. Down here we have porgys. Some place may have scup. Same fish different name. The question is this..... Cinder worm....Clam worm. Same critter or totally different animal? I need to know!:confused:

Dble Haul 04-24-2002 03:25 PM

Jimmy, the answer to your question is yes. The cinder worm and clam worm are names that are used interchangeably along the coast to describe what is essentially the same creature. While scup and porgy are the same species, either one of the worm nomenclatures is used to include any one of hundreds of different species of marine worms. The differences in these species' physiology is minimal and of no real relevance to angler, unless you'd like to get into some Latin and hair splitting.

May 25/26 Count me in I think. I should be ready to go by then

Jimmy 04-24-2002 04:52 PM

Thanks Mark. That clears things up for me. My Latin is a little rusty. The only thing this old alter boy remembers is how to conjugate the verb "to spit". Spito, Spitari, Hacktui, Splat.:hehe:

I would like to attend Juro please post dates as soon as humanly possible so'z I can make some plans to join you'z guy'z. I can bring the boat but boats and worm hatches don't normally go hand in hand unless we need a boat to reach the hatch. Either way I would be interested in commiserating with the pro's from here. Names to faces and such. Even maybe catch a fish or 2. I will check back often for your updates. Thanks!!!
