I am a hack with some pretty good gear.
Got the go pro too- set up for underwater shots.
Full geek mode.
When does your plane land?
05-16-2013, 07:27 AM
Lee- what do you shoot?
I will have the t3i with me. Got any good Canon lenses?

Would she really know what the Arkansas looks like?
Wouldn't shots from the Green, or any other river pass too?
See is Ski Fish Bum has any pics without his dogs in 'em.

Hook is captain on this trip. I'm sure we will catch something.
05-14-2013, 02:20 PM
Heh- and we didn't catch anything. Imagine how awesome it will be if we do.

Not sure about Tarpon, but if you wanted to get a Tampa Bay mini going, I'd be all for it. We get Tarpon in June, but we have great flats fishing everywhere. Flights are cheaper, lodging is super...
I actually meant 15-85 IS, but looking at both.
If you could own one lens, for use on a t3i, which one would it be?
I have a Nikon D200 that I like the Sigma 10-20 on. I also have an 18-200 with a polarized filter on it. That lens is nice for...

It's been done before. 1st 3 times I went to KW, had no room.
Bars open till 4 am, sleep in the car until the roosters wake you up, and sleep it off on the beach.
This is going to be a huge upgrade.
05-10-2013, 07:02 AM
Shhh.... No wind
Confirmed hotel yesterday. Thank god- they had us down for one night. Got it fixed.
Hotel is 3 blocks from where the boat pulls in.

Cool- I am taking the ferry from Ft Myers, so I have to be at the docks at 5 anyway.
Be just as excited for the food. Trust me.

Booking the Eden House if I don't here from my relative soon.
I'll let you know.
05-06-2013, 03:03 PM
So many choices.
I guess I'll have to get a couple nice Tarpon flies now.
I will bring the 10. Maybe time for a reel upgrade.
Looking forward to it.

Can I bring my spin set up, just in case I suck? I want to put that Saltist to the test.
I have some pink jigs that are supposed to be poon crack.
Also, biggest in the quiver is a 10 wt with a...

Hall pass granted X 2- you ready Hook?
Jeez, I thought no one was gonna say Goonies, the greatest movie ever made.
Most watched, next to Goonies-

Tsaina crew? Those were some awesome stories you had about that place. Sounds like a circus I would like.
Yeah, scratch (pun intended) what I said about the poly lenses before. They are tough to scratch, but they have developed this horrible foggy bubbling.
Sunglass place told me it was normal. WTF? I...
Since that SNL was a repeat from about a month or two ago, I would say you have been living under a rock. Either that, or skiing a lot and not watching TV.
Khaleesi/Margaery girl girl scene is all this show needs now.
Please tell me that was in the book.
PM me. I work in the industry, on the sales side. Manufacturer's rep. I could get you some contacts.
Do you really want to do electrical work, or would you be interested in the sales side. Many of...
Be there friday. Save some for me.
The 580p is their most scratch resistant. I have dropped them on the ground several times, no scratches. My 580 glass lenses have a nice scratch right in the line of sight from falling off my head...
Save some cash and get the 580P poly lenses- I have those in copper/gunmetal frame prescription. Love them. The Poly doesn't scratch nearly as easily as the 580 glass. You can not really get a good...
Yes, yes I am. That would be sweet.
PM me, and I'll give you an address in Sandy to send them to, if that is cool.
LCC bound- April 11th to 15th.
Love to make a couple turns, and grab some 3.2's.
Any other SLC mags too. Love to meet some new folks.
I'll show you how we ski in FL.
DTM, you around that...
Some other time for sure. I get plenty of fishing done, not enough skiing.
This is gonna be a fun trip- 2 buddies from HS. One is a recently converted tele hippy, and the other one barely skis, but...
I'll take 12" on April 12th please. With the low snow this year, I thought I would gamble on the late season run out there. I got the round trip air ticket for $273, and I stay with my buddy at the...
Keep a little snow on the hill for me. Coming in April 11th to 15th. Better than nothing I guess.

Any interest on either? If so, I will post pics.
Willing to look at trades for Canon lenses too.
That is the right formula. Any given hour, they will bite a fly, but not touch live bait or a jig, and vice versa. Shrimp patterns stripped with the tide work well for blind casting. The more...
Thought it included reel. Guess I was wrong.
Yeah, you might not want to try to cast it too long, but mangroves and docks are where Snook and Redfish tend to be.
All around rod, I would be in the...
If you want to CATCH, just get a redbone 7-14 spinner with a Daiwa or Shimano reel.
Snook are pretty smart. Catching them on the fly is a challenge, even for those of us that try A LOT.

I`ll take ISO over Kaizen or LEAN bullshit any day. Meetings about meetings. Just get me product to sell.
It's almost like he was bred to fit the demographic. Weird.
His dad was a pretty well liked Gov. though.
03-14-2013, 03:35 PM
Hugh, you might make a good point once in a while, but you are usually too busy telling everyone how stupid they are. Tough to filter through that crap to find your good stuff. Maybe try a different...
03-14-2013, 02:55 PM
No, I said it, but didn't mean it the way it came out. I'll own it.
Triage- thanks for your comments. You are too knowledgeable and rational for this place. You sure you aren't a bot?
03-14-2013, 10:28 AM
Yes, I didn't really mean that it was a worthless piece of paper. I was only the 2nd in my family to get one of those worthless pieces of paper, so it WAS a big deal. I was trying to say that it has...
03-14-2013, 06:20 AM
Now THAT is an eye opening stat. I would have thought it was much higher by now.
Really explains a big part of the divide in this country. Maybe it is a step towards the gap closing?
03-13-2013, 02:25 PM
What's wrong Hugh, being an International Man of Douche-baggery not paying so well these days?
03-13-2013, 06:29 AM
I went to a CT public high school. We had a 100% graduation rate, with 98% going on to college, and 2% going into the military. At least, that was my year.
So yes, it...

First to get hit with the housing decline, and first to leave it. Boomers want to live here, and there are a ton of them retiring every day. I will bet you anything, if interest rates stay close to...
03-12-2013, 07:21 PM
My opinion, a bachelor's degree hasn't meant jack shit since the 70's. It is just a piece of paper. College does next to nothing to make you ready for the workforce. It is just what everybody does...

Where the fuck do you live, Greece? Our economy is pretty damn good right now, only getting better. Must just be FL.
03-12-2013, 06:39 PM
Define devalued. A journeyman electrician can make really good coin in his 20's, become a master electrician in his 30's, and have his own shop in his 40's. I see it all the time. Plumbers and...

Ahhh, but if you skip E, you miss one of the best restaurants in Islamorada.
03-09-2013, 09:21 AM
This thread has devolved nicely.
03-08-2013, 06:56 AM
You obviously haven't seen what a master electrician or plumber makes these days. Many of them go on to own their own businesses and make a ton of cash.
I would say that a well trained mechanic is...

Tipp- I agree. If I hear the phrase, " You should just be happy to have a job" ever again, I am going to scream. I see my distributor partners working with less people, doing more, working longer...
