Don't worry Brad, I'll keep the fort down while you're away. Hope that new switch rod of yours works out the way you wanted with fish that not only will bend your rod but will bend your senses as well. See you in June.
Our plane leaves PDX at 5:30 today to LAX then after a 3 hour layover,it's about a 14 hour flight. Here's one for you, we will be landing in Auckland 7:00am Wednesday morning but for you it will still be noon on Tuesday. We'll have PC access so I'll be in touch. Don't catch all the fish before I get back.
You're either back home or you found an Alaskan tavern with WiFi.
Wish I would have known you was going South to fish the N. Umpqua. I would have encouraged you go go a little further upstream to fish where the Spring River meets the North Umpqua. Brown's Hole it is called. Full of Brown Trout!
