Yard & I are setting camp up next to Matt. Just say'n.
If Matt has a C02 setup, I can bring a keg or two as well. I was planning on bringing some bottles... but why not go all out? I've currently got 15gals fermenting... The least I could do is fill up my 3gal keg and donate it to the cause
Yard & I are camping in between Matt & Evan.
Oh, and besides my paypal account, you can also mail checks if that's prefered.

I'll be rolling in on Wed. with Mark Walker in tow. I'll be sleeping in the back of my 4Runner (Jeff Bandy, save me a spot near your motorhome if you can!!!) Jerry, I'll be happy to help out with the cooking as I'll probably be in camp more than on the river...I'm not really set up for steelhead... "TROUT FISHERMEN DOMINATE THE WATER". I will coordinate with you about what to bring. I can make some killer side dishes...we'll talk.
I have a 10ft 8 wt single hander and a 13'6" 8wt spey that I'm just learning how to cast. You're welcome to use whichever one I'm not using at the moment. I also have an extra 8wt 9' single hander that you can use full time if someone has an extra reel and line (I'm guessing Mumbles probably has 4-5 extra 8wt reels knowing his collection).
Rob, Thanks much for the offer. Mumbles already offered up some gear as well. I will be bringing my own 7wt setup and relying on superior angling skill to make it work. HA!
. Will arrive either late the 17th or early morning on the 18th most likely 18th early AM. Will leave on the 21st back toward home.
Have room in truck for car pool person from Kent/ Des Moines area.
Will bring firewood and tarp and Jerry let me know where to mail check to and amount since I do not use Paypal.
Do not need place for tent since as per normal I will just sleep in the back of the truck.
Chris would love to try water masters or bum ride in drift boat for one of the days if there an open seat some where but not a requirement.
Pat, my mailing address is a couple lines above.
OK, im going to take vacation this time and go. Sean let me know if you have a full car load. If not we should carpool.. I have my truck if needed.
Ill bring a bunch of custom rods if anyone wants to play around and test some nice rods. I have never fished in that area so I dont know what I should bring as far as rods go. Should I just bring 8wt's or can I get away with 7wt's maybe even a 10' 6wt.?
Tyler, 7wt's are a little light for a possible 20 lb. + steelhead. The 6wt. would be just wrong. JMO.
I personally wouldn't even consider anything smaller than an 8wt. If I had my preference, I'd be rolling with a 9-10wt in thems parts.
