Wooooha! That's a 'hard left turn!' Any thoughts

about moving to Oregon? I'd be you 'sponsor!' And unless you have 15 kids we've got the room.
(For a change on this one!)

Man, Willie's post stopped both Joan and I in our tracks!

But we ment every word; to paraphrase an old line: "Go West Young Man."

On New Years list: Get a specific Burkie rod for the last one in the quiver.

fae ... and Joan's not peeking .. I hope?

Sparky -

Tall (doppio) Americanos are $1.80. One Walker's shortbread cookie (.50) goes a long way, total $2.30; a man's coffee and less $ than a short mocha.

Malcom -

Best of luck with new ventures, you'd be a hit in the PNW!


New years resolutions... excluding the dozens of non-fishing related resolutions:

- complete the 10wt 4-pc VPS Sage rod I have half-built before spring

- complete the flats fly patterns I have prototyped for several years (flounder, shrimp, etc)

- develop a really solid left-side single spey for right bank upriver wind

- host my best friend (who is also my wife) on a spectacular fishing date. It's her compromise for me going horseback riding and taking dance lessons with her. I didn't negotiate well.

- Have the best year ever with my shore guiding business

- Grow a web design/hosting business I co-founded as much as possible in 2003 (Enthusist Media, a major forum sponsor in 2003).


- Big Brother II

- Seattle Flyfishing Show and Spey Clave

- Get this site on a dedicated server capable of handling videos

- An even better Boston Fly Show year than last year

- Structured Moderator Program with responsibilities and rewards defined

- Getting the annual operating costs + next years' show fees in the account ahead of time to avoid the last minute fund raising crunch

- Launching a new Professional Sponsor section, coming soon

- New Fly Archive

- Site Redesign Phase I

- Sponsors, sponsors, sponsors!

- reward program for 10,000th thread winner

- just a bazillion things as usual!

I guess it's not a reasonable thing to list resolutions because priorities change all the time and there are always too many things to get done. Nonetheless I think this is a good starting point and most of all...

Keeping things fishing/forum related...

- Help Juro have his best shore guiding season to date by booking a trip with him in late May. Juro - we need to set a date!

- Finish up some of the fly pattern archive work that I started a year and a half ago. I will be honest - my motivation to read my "PHP and MySQL Web Development" book has waned to nothingness. I may need some help from the Forum troops as motivation to finish up some of the work. Juro - maybe you can find some time during the Marlboro show weekend to discuss the back end work that I want to complete. My biggest fear is that I will come up with something that is incompatible with the site - or nothing at all.

-Dedicate a weekend a month (May through October) as a fishing weekend. I worked on my house almost every weekend last summer.

-Take my wife oversand on Nauset

-Learn the Hampton Flats here on the NH coast. No excuse for me since the flats are only 35 minutes from my house.

That is all for now - Happy New Year.

1) Following on from last years health improvement theme ( it's now 350 days since I quit smoking), onto phase II.

Got a head-to-toe physical 6 weeks back and I'm now into week five of a committed personal trainer work-out program. Losing about 1.5 lb per week and developing muscles where I didn't know you got muscles. Guys, you won't recognise the new physique on the flats this coming summer

2) Spend more time fishing and exploring by Kayak - I really only scratched the surface in '02. I'm planning a week on the Cape this year in June around the full moon instead of chasing Bones in the tropics - so - helping Juro hit his goal sounds good to me too!!
When sight fishing, look over your shoulder from time to time, you never know who's behind you
