RE:Gore-Tex Jacket$

There are 2 Sims DryCoats(green) and 5 Patagonia SST(tan) @ Fly Fishing Outfitters in SaFrancisco. They are marked down 40%. $179-$189 415 781 3474
AS far as GTX jackets leaking...if waders don't leak... I suspect that the water is coming in through the same hole that the head is sticking out of.A capilene collar effectively wicks water right into the jacket. Some kind of cuff, like on a dry suit(or a spray top) would work best. This would not ventilate well however. Patagonia has some cool sea kyak/dinghy sailing tops that would keep the water out.
Leaving for the Trinity river tonight. Don't think it will rain though it might snow. Eddie

Speaking of Kilts...

A Scotsman wearing a kilt was walking down a country
path after finishing off a considerable amount of
whisky at a local pub. As he staggered and swayed down
the road, he felt quite sleepy and decided to take a
nap, with his back against a tree. As he slept, two
young lasses walked down the road and heard the
Scotsman snoring loudly. They saw him, and one said,
"I've always wondered what a Scotsman wears under his
kilt."
She boldly walked over to the sleeping man,
raised his kilt, and saw what nature had provided him.
Her friend said, "Well, he has solved a great mystery
for us! He must be rewarded!" So, she took a blue
ribbon from her hair, and gently tied it around what
nature had provided the Scotsman, and the two walked
away.

Some time later, the still tipsy Scotsman was awakened
by the call of nature, and walked around to the other
side of the tree to relieve himself. He raised his
kilt...and saw where the blue ribbon was tied. After
several moments of bewilderment, the Scotsman said,
"I dunna know where y'been lad.........but it's nice
ta'know y'won First Prize!!"

Good one Sully...

A salesman from Boston had a love affair with a gorgeous lady from NY city. Each week he would drop by to see her on his route. She would abstain relations until he had the name "Wendy" tatooed on his scottish prizewinner. This puzzled him because her name was "Sally", but he did it and was amply rewarded. One weekend he found out she had been carrying on with every interested man in the northeast, manipulating them all to get the said tattoo. This was more than he could take so he said good riddance and drove for home. Stopping on the thruway for a nature break, he couldn't help but notice the guy next to him with a "wendy" tattoo. He said "so she got you too?". Puzzled, the man replied "sorry, I don't know what you mean". The scorned lover retorted "you know, the tattoo!".

The man replied... "OH, the tattoo... I got that years ago when I was young and single traveling with the tourism committee. It says "<b>W</b>e Hope to Se<b>e</b> You Soon i<b>n</b> Schenecta<b>dy</b>"

Thanks for the message about the Jackets. I'll give you a ring today at about 2pm your time(Monday), which is about 10pm here. Hopefully I'll get through and we can sort something out. The folks who have the house in Delaware are there all week. I hope it'll be possible to have it sent there 'cos they could bring it back to Scotland next Monday.

How was the fishing at the week-end?

Cheers.

Phil

Great to talk to you yesterday. Shame there were no jackets left. Perhaps someone else will come up with another source.

RE:Gore-Tex Jacket$

solo brought up a good point guys, if you dive or hunt, you never go afeild without your knife!!! it can be as tiny as a 1inch blade, but very handy. and may save your life in a pinch. it may not be easy to cut goretex, but with a sharp knife you may get out of it, or your waders and live to tell the story.

Phil -

We will definitely take care of you before your visit. Please remind us a bit later on and rest assured that you will have one of us arrange for the jacket purchase while you are in the states.
