    Default New Casting get-together Thursday

    OK Guys and Gals,
    Here's the deal! New time would be Thursday the 30th at 6:30 p.m. In order to get Mike onboard for either rod testing or casting tips we need some confirmed participation. SO please let me know if you plan on making this get-together, not maybe's please. I need to know by Thursday morning by 7 a.m.
    Sorry about taking a firm stand but I don't want to waste the time of instructors and rod reps that have agreed to participate.

    I'd love to participate but you failed to specify where it's to be, I'm guessing LosAnchorage but for all I know you might be talking about Fairbanks or somewhere else. Just got a Pfluger 8W rod and Trion reel and since I haven't done any fly fishing in about 10 years could probably use lots of advice on getting back into casting.

    Default Wasilla

    I believe it is at the Wasilla Sports Complex.
    All the romance of trout fishing exists in the mind of the angler and is in no way shared by the fish.

    4 hours later and I could come
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

    Wow, not much response at all. I'm guessing it's off?

    Knifemaker,
    I have one coming from another forum and if you come this will make two and I think I can get Mike to come and bring some rods. You got a rod you want to test?

    Knifemaker, was good to meet you and cast together.
    This is how it went. The group of soccer players that had the arena before had extended so we went outside and cast on some grass, it was a nice evening.

    Mike at 3 Rivers brought his custom bamboo 6wt and a Sage 5wt that they only made for one year with a special reel that attaches to the end of the rod. Both rods were unique and fun to cast or figure out.

    Sorry you all missed it.
