Question FAC in Chatham

http://www.telecamsystems.com/chatham/

Boy I sure could have enjoyed the morning in the outgoing rip at the light if I had only known. My clients wisely cancelled their flight for the weekend's fishing (understandably) but with guys like Jim Simms in town, the season nearing the red zone, and being a bit over-worked this year it would have been just the right prescription.

Maybe if I get everything done today...

Yes, I think I blew it also. I was going to take my wife and Tracy, OC's better half, fishing this morning but the forcast as of last night was ominus at best so decided to call it off. I woke up to a downpour at 6:00 am but by 8 the rain had stopped, the wind was non existent and the radar looked favorable.

BTW Sean -

I really hope your visit to the hospital is quick and painless and the stones are thoroughly eliminated. Hope to see you back on the water soon, in fact Boneclave might go a long ways toward forgetting this weekend

get well quick!

Good day...

Boy did they miss the forecast, (meteorologist). Got to the lighthouse this a.m. and it was flat ass calm. Decided immediately that this could be an epiic day. Long and short. Fished with Dave Cook from Buffalo. Four keepers and the fish were basically busting just out of range. Good day, but tomorrow with the west wind, who knows.

Sounds good Jim - BTW what is 'just out of range' in terms of feet? The new lines are making 140ft casts a reality on the two-handers and lots of practice over the last season to help that cause. West wind eh?

Rio Outbound...

Juro, just got the intermiedate for the 9wt from the Denver show, and I was casting 80-90 feet with ease. When I say just out of range, it was another 150 feet. I could see their backs coming out o the water, big fish, but they never got closer.Lots of silvedrsides, but suspect they were either on pods of peanuts or sand eels. The llast few days there has been small pods of peanut bunker on the outgoing.

Its starting to heatup, and the feed bag may be starting.

YHou will be please to know that all fish today were caught on your Deep Eel.

My duties have taken me almost into tomorrow but if possible I will make the drive down for dawn at the light. If I can't get my body to give up the only day I get to sleep in, well then I will probably just hit some water closer to home since I have a meeting tomorrow evening around dinner time back in Winchester.

Don't hook 'em all

Stevo -

I think Jim's talking about thr Rio Outbound, a phenomenal new line to hit he shelves in 2005.

Jim -

I like the 8wt on my 9wt rod, but I like the 10wt on my 9/10wt two-hander. Excluding influences from wind the backing knot is pretty easy to hit on this 120ft line, but that won't reach those fish you're talking about!

Funny how they seem to be just out of reach all the time.

Looking forward to meeting the gang (unless I am in a Canadian salmon camp that week).

Hi guys,
Not meaning to hi-jack a thread, but as your talking about Rio Outound lines,
Iv'e got a 375gr line for my 9# and to be honest i think it casts as well on my 10#,
they seem to heavy to me....
As i want one for my 8# do you think i should get a 275gr (7#) or stick with a 330gr ?
I like the lines and agree they cast well.
Thanks in advance...i'll let you get back to the thread now

Dave

I'd go one line under personally... love the lines as well. Great on two-handers.
