    that's a fantastic idea. don't know why i didn't think of it. a sac o hops will be added!

    No it all sounds good now, I just don't want to hear any later from those of you who go. I don't even get the chance to get out. Once I'm in better shape so I don't need help or one of the boys can get out to go along then I'll be okay. I'm really looking forward to being able to go some time. If I don't ever make it then my fishing days are over and I won't be much good for anything else. Just go have a great time.

    Anyone that is going to the Hoh need a air pump for their tube or toon? I have a Coleman dual action air pump in great shape with all the fittings I don't need. These things go for around $20 so It's not worth shipping it. I'll trade it for a couple of steelhead flies, a bottle of bad whiskey, or a shot or two of good scotch, whatever you got. I'll be bringing it with me. Steve

    Weather is lookin good! Big system about to slam the penn, but it looks like it should clear up after that. Now, from what I have read (limited) and never experienced, fish like to come in on high tides and high water.

    ofc it is weather, and its the rainforest, so i know its actualyl just gonna pour rain the whole time!

    I'm really looking forward to some fine food and drink, and maybe catching my first Steelhead! Save me some beer, I'll be there friday night. I plan to sleep in my truck so won't need a whole campsite, just a place to park near the kegs ;) -Josh

    alriiiiiight. Put in a half ounce each of US Golding and Sorachi Ace. Should add a nice aroma to it if nothing else. I'll at least bring a "private stock" of some bottles of other beers to share with the beer geeks.

    Well, most of the food has been bought. Dropped over $400 today. Will be buying the last of the food and filling up the propane tanks tomorrow. Will be loaded well for food. So those of you going, if you leave hungry it's your own damned fault. :)

    I'll be a last minute addition to the Hohdown - Thursday evening through Sunday. Just worked out my schedule to get time off and figured I can't pass this up. Look forward to meeting you guys.

    Bring a camp chair! They were in high demand last year. See you there
