Thanks for the invite, boy I wish I could get there for a weekend without spending a day traveling on either side! I don't mind traveling as many hours as I do fishing (and have done it often) but when that time is measured in days my employer and wife would both have "issues". Still, as much as I love the coastal flyfishing scene a part of my heart will never leave the pacific northwest. Someday we might have travel options that would allow us to fish opposite coasts over a weekend (super-conductive rail?).
Also I look forward to getting out for stripah with you when you visit here again. Why don't you drag Sinktip out here sometime?
