RI Clave question

I'm not officially in the Clave but will be down tomorrow (Thursday) and one of the weekend days. Any easy way of IDing people, like hats? Wouldn't mind putting a few faces to names when I'm there. I'll likely be wearing a pretty non descript long navy blue jacket, hip boots, and navy blue ski hat (assuming it's a cold start), and glasses. The bright red Abu hat will come out later if it warms up.

Starting at either C-town or Quonny (Fresh Pond Rocks) two hours before dawn from shore and working my way west. Most likely chucking hardware or eels, which should make me stand out from this crowd .

Latest report from last weekend in South County was that fishing was great IF you had a small boat and were able to get a few hundred yds offshore. Albie pods breaking here and there as well. But very little tight-to-beach action. I'm still hopin' though...

RE:RI Clave question

Bill,

I mentioned that we might all tie something red to the passenger side mirror of our vehicles. I didn't get any response to that, but maybe mentioning it again will have an effect(?). We were going to try for hats, but until we find a sugar daddy, we'll have to stick with something more low tech Either way, stop by Burlingame around 6 PM -- if you're down on Saturday -- for dinner and social hour. We will be in the area of sites 99-108. All are welcome. I'll have extra hamburgers and hot dogs just in case we run low on anything.

Thanks for the report. I had a feeling things were going to heat up down there this past weekend. Sorry it didn't work out for the shore crowd. I will be bringing my small boat, but I'm hoping this storm will chase the bait into shore and that the bass and blues will follow. Here's hoping.

Al

RE:RI Clave question

BD,

We'll be there for sure in Terry's wheels, green Toyota PU. Are you still driving the same car? What's the milage on it now?

I'll be wearing the same light gray / green visor St. Croix hat, light brown Orvis waders and WWII U.S. issue color green slicker. Oh yeah, and lugging the spinning insurance. Hopefully I won't be smelling like skunk. <img src="http://216.71.206.188/images/flytalk/Wilk.gif[/img]

RE:RI Clave question

It's hard not to sound like an ad, or just a fishing yuppie but:

I'll be wearing Orvis waders, Simms boots (brown leather freshwater w/felt since it's all I've got) and a Blue Northern Trading Company cap (big trout emblem, olive/kahky colored), Maui Jim Volcanos (black), with maroon colored wind breaker.

Drive a black Volvo sedan, or Honda Odyssey minivan - haven't decided if I'll be sleepin in the van or not Friday night.

RE:RI Clave question

I will.... tie a yellow ribbon round the old oak tree it's been...oops wrong venue.
I like bigcat's idea and will do the same with red bandana, not a banana. We don't want to go there.

Light Green RAV 4 with red ribbon on the sideview mirror, boat trailer behind.

I'll be wearing a bright red flats shirt (birthday gift) under dark brown neoprene waders, green stripping basket. I wear glasses and people say I look Islamic or Hindu, though I'm actually Italian (half Sicilian).

Duh!!!! It's so obvious. The sign should be, Leave your car headlights on. This way we can see who's here not only from the parking lot, but from the beach as well.

Green Grand Cherokee. People say I look Protestant, but I'm actually Agnostic.

I do know a couple of Islamic Italians, and I'm sure there are some Hindu Italians too.

RE:RI Clave question

Ok, but I challenge you to find a single Southern Baptist Italian

Sorry. Didn't mean to use religion as an description of my appearance. I just meant that people usually assume I'm from some Middle Eastern country. Oh, hell.... HERE:



Hope to see you this weeknd, Steve.
