    Come and share a chance to talk and tell stories about Doug with his Friends!

    Meet at Indian Island Park, Scenic Route 116 , across from Entrance To Naval Base Port Hadlock, wa. 98339.

    Please bring: your own lunch and beverage for yourself and extra if you would like to share, your rod and reel and your version of a Keta Rose or a fly of your choice with name and contact information.

    Indian Island and Marrowstone Island were places that Doug often fished for Sea-Run Cutthroat and Coho Salmon.

    See you Sunday

    Wish I could make it, but I have to work. I'll pour a scotch and flip through "The Color of Winter" when I get off work...

    I'll be there, even though I'll likely end up roping myself with my wild wrong-armed casting!
    That's a nice beach for this.
    I think I'm missing two of the ingredients for the Keta Rose, but I'll try to get some.
    Hairline UV minnow belly, and pale blue bucktail.
    Re-reading Steve's original post, I see that its OK to tie a different pattern. Hmmmmm.

    Jim,

    I didn't have the buck tail either, but you're only using a few strands. I subbed in some light blue craft fur. As for the minnow belly - UV crystal flash would be fine, or any other white/pearl/clear synthetic fiber with a bit of flash.

    Jeff Delia asked me to remind you all to bring your own folding chairs that day, maybe an extra if you have one too. That will help.

    Doug had made reference to an old beach log that was a special spot to him and others. I think I know the one as it's a special spot for me as well. Maybe we could place some kind of memorial there as a rememberance to him. Any ideas out there?

    If you have a Medalist reel, it might be nice to fish it April 7. I'll be fishing mine.

    The Indian Island Naval Magazine Navy base is on Flagler Road.
    From Port Hadlock take Oak Bay Road (South) under one mile to Flagler Road.
    Turn left on Flagler Road.
    After crossing the high bridge over the channel,(Port Townsend Ship Canal, aka: Government Cut), The Navy base is on the left. The park is immediately on the right.

    Thanks, Bob, I was wondering if it was that park just over the bridge there.

    Rob, thanks for the materials substitution info.

    Steve, that photo you posted of Doug fishing in the rain is a good reminder for us to be sure to bring our rain gear. :cool:
