This is sounding good. Thanks for the ideas and willingness to help and please keep them coming. Thanks for the heads up Kent. Frank told me about that show but I forgot about it. We'll work around that one. I didn't think about River Sports. Gander Mountain has another good kayak guy. Great Idea. I was thinking about Madisonville Marine and Tri County Marine. I'll talk to Umpqua and Kent you could represent Rainy's Flies and of course TFO. I can market with direct mail, Little River Journal, this board and the website. I will need photos and bios on those who want to contribute. I'll also talk to TWRA. After all, they say we are "THE" Smallmouth Bass State. I bet we can get their warmwater guy or gal here. I know some bass guides.

Kent, I'll help you out with travel costs. Keep them coming guys.

Waterwolf, I'll sit and listen to you and I would enjoy it, as always.

Thanks guys, this will be fun.

Byron

I have only started to dabble with warmwater flyfishing and would be very interested in such an event.

Default Reality of warmwater fishing

If warmwater includes low country then I am in. I think I can hold my own on Redfish and Seatrout.

To be quite honest I am the "back seat b*%#^" in motorcycle lingo, when it comes to stripers, carp, and bass. I like fishing for them alot, and can even hold my own with "the master" sometimes, but I have had an excellent teacher in Dean. I would feel like I would be delivering "the old smoke and mirrors" if you ask me to give something insightful. Seagull or Waterwolf, those boys live for stripers and smallmouth respectively. I can however teach someone how to cast a 9wt backhand (back seat remember) BETTER than they can forehand. It only took me about 15 years to figure this out, which I did last year on a trip to Beaufort in Dean's boat.

I will be happy to be available to tie any warmwater flies if you need an extra.

Byron....Great Idea! If you need an artist that's been known to create a print or two in the Warm Water category...count me in.

I think it was pretty much forgotten about. There are very few of us hard core warm water fly fishermen in this area. Maybe next year!

I think it would be best in Feb / March timing. April starts getting into Troutfest time.

By November, a lot of the warm water fishing is starting to wind down and many warm water fishermen are either getting out for a few last days before the winter closes in, or are thinking about hunting seasons.

Late Jan, Feb, or March would be when the warm water fishermen would start getting their stuff together and thinking about the season to come.

Just a thought.

Sorry Guys,

I forgot about it. My bad. I don't spend enough time on here. My bad again. It's not that I haven't been working. It's been a strange year. Keep it on my radar please.
