Deprivation!

I was out in Seattle last week working on a new project and brought all my gear hoping to break away from work. However software projects being as they are the most intense days were Saturday and Sunday since we can't schedule downtime mid-week and all systems needed to be "go" Monday morning.

Net effect was zero casts and I lugged the stuff back untouched. Talk about high anxiety! I am jonesin' bad, I hope I have to come back out soon.

Good being in the emerald city for a few though. Highlight of this business trip was I ate sushi where Ichiro does - Shiro's in Belltown. Phenomenal! Got served by Mr.Shiro himself, a real master.

I work in the tech field and have had the occaisional job offer in other parts of the country. One of the requirements for a relocation for work are if there are any steelhead rivers within driving distance of the proposed new job. If not, I'm not interested.

I feel so sorry for you Juro. The lure of money should never override the lure of steelhead.

How true Kerry, truth be told I've prioritized things differently for many years and got away with it but this year with two in college I need to lay down the foundation for some family stability going forward.

However this first one was a sacrifice to the work Gods, I am hoping I have established my worth to the project and will require frequent visits to keep the momentum

Software developers...sheesh, don't you know you're supposed to leave the project in shambles with statements like "oh, you wanted that" and "we'll configure this later" as you head out the door talking all about "phase II". Keep the documentation on your laptop and email them the encrypted versions. Take a page from the storage guys, purchasing managers love the horribly trashed configurations ISV's and Integrators leave behind and for some reason love to have them back to repair the diaster. Don't ask why but it seems only in scheduled downtime will you prove your worth. Choose 'wisely' ;-)

I made it to the Skagit on Wednesday for a float. Finally hooked up with a nice little buck (Gaspe Grilse, 13-15 lb). River was very clear. Nice day on the river though.

Too bad I didn't know you were there, I'd have stopped for dinner on the way up or back.

great to hear you made it (finally!)

There's a lot more where that came from especially thru autumn; let's hook up when I return. At least for dinner... I hear there is this place on Madison

I will of course tote all my gear regardless of whether there is a snowballs chance that I will wet a line.

Give a holler. I know a flyfisher with a devil jet sled that's itching to get out on the skagit.

Screw work.

ps. All else being equal, and if you are in the big city, I'm a big fan of Sanmi's for sushi.

Tony,

Since I don't know where that is I'll have to hook up with you and Bob to try it.

Also since I am doing work for your alma mater, "screw work" might not go over all that well

I don't know about that... if I had a buck for everytime I skipped work there and went fishing, I'd be rich!

Juro, remember this word; "boondoggle". It seems to work for the storage vendors. Just look at their bottom line these days. "We'll have to send someone on site to fix that", "it's in the next release, be glad to come out and perform the upgrade when it's ready", "we'll get you a resident for a month until all the kinks are worked out", and so on.

It comes with the trade these days unfortunately. So you might as well live off the fat of the land.
