    FFI17.c is being arranged. Sept. 29th through October 1st. So far SFB, Lumpy, and myself are committed. Should be a good time, the fishing is usually pretty well this time of year. I'm thinking the Slate Creek party central spot. Saturday will be the last day for fishing from the dam, it's a longer fish into camp Sunday to Slate than Weepy.

    I'm pretty lucky to have friends like Dibs and Dan. Last year Dan (aka Lumpy) gave me a fly rod when we went up to the Fonts. Dibs gave me a reel spooled with line. I'd used it a few times on earlier trips this year but hadn't caught anything.

    SFB (aka Dibs) headed up to the Fonts on Thursday after a Healing Waters event he rowed. He scored us the last campsite at Weeping Rock as it appeared most of Utah had headed up there. I was hoping for Party Central at Slate but it wasn't to be. We headed up as early as we could on Friday, got there in time to pick up Dibs at Hay Farm.

    He did well floating to there and we headed back to Weepy to finish the night off with some elk tenderloins and hot dogs. The rest of the weekend was a blur of fish catching, wine/beer drinking, rowing, HR Puppystuffs, pigs and a belated news of Cougar winning.

    The highlight of the weekend was switching over to fly gear soon after we passed under the bridge past Slate. Normally I throw spinners and such with my spinning rod. This time Dan had tied me up and had my fly rod ready with a nymphing rig. I was pretty much a wreck, but figured it out enough to pull it together and get 6 fish on the line, regretfully I only managed to get one into the boat.

    I'm used to using spinning gear and submitting fish to my will into the boat. It was a new experience trying to get them into the boat with a noodle rod and small tippets. Big thanks to Dibs and Dan for putting up with noobness, untangling me even after I grabbed their streamers in mid air to the cause of massive tangleness.

    Humorous highlight of the weekend was asking a guy standing on a redd with a guide what color bobber was working best, as I tossed out my worm, heh.

    I've got pics and will put them up tomorrow.

    If anyone wants to get in on this junk show, it looks like we'll be heading up the 27th through the 29th of October. It should be giggly. (Aka, FFI17.d)

    Great trip. Avoided marauding 'coons with better outside the camper hygiene than the guys next door. Next time will only bring one roasting stick, jerky, 8 pack of Bar-S', white boat dog, dozen dark olive mini low-fats, and no changes of clothes.

    Thanks to Bob and SFB for another excellent trip! Looking forward to next round of Fonts heroics later this month. SFB calling out "Redd Raper 1, this is Redd Raper 2" to the Kenai Combat Crews is spot on.

    Just so everyone knows, Bob is a HUDGE FLY FISHERMAN!

    Guess I'll still bring the elk. But only one roasting stick so SFB can go Bear Grillz style.

    The witty jokes and poses are the only thing in my repertoire so far, they're a lot easier to pick up than the casting.

    Drafts of beer or some canasta, you're set here.

    Wife wasn't real impressed with fish pics, this one from Sunday afternoon impressed her more.

    Still on for last weekend in Oct! Daddy Issues, Mini Low Fats, or your choice of bugs/ slimey things to chuck! Bringing the fifth wheel and clack (if I don't pile it up dragging it all donkey train style).

    Looks like the Fugitive and crew are in as well. They were wondering if we wanted in on meal planning, but I let them know of our hot dog/beef jerky/dirt dietary plans.

    I'm going to fly fish the shit out of that river this time! (I'm also still going to bring worms.)

    You in Lee? DFinn?

    I'm bringing a cane pole and a box of dries. I'm hoping Pio will come over and show us how it's done.

    Yes, it was. But I posted it in the wrong thread. Reposted in the catch-all.

    Wow, what a trip... I knew the weekend was going to be good when we walked into the Hamsfork liquor store/bar/drive in to have a beer and found one of the locals at the bar with a rather large shot in front of him. He asked us if "You like whiskey? Want a shot?" Lumpy demurred as we had 30 miles yet to go but I was game and helped "Rodney" with half his shot. A draft for each of us while chatting with Susie the bartender and we were off.

    The fishing wasn't quite as good as usual but we still stuck a few. Lumpy kept the entire crew fed and went above and beyond. I went big Saturday, shots at 7am didn't help much. Lumpy brought the trout bugle and we bugled our way down the river. Even drunk the newbie huge fly fishing guy led the pack with three to the boat that day.

    We had a bit of shenanigans on Sunday, dropped rod, the river was swam and then a snapped soldier. It was still one heck of a trip and I'm looking forward to purchasing another non-resident Wyoming fishing license next season.

    Great trip, good to meet new folks and fish with them. Couple of pics of Party Central and our 1-beer, 1/2-shot of given liquor at the best little bar in Kemmerer.

    By the way, the 2-day double shots of Imodium and red wine abuse just wore off as I was reading through the Tenkara thread.

    Looking forward to more Bird Dog-Trout Bugles, Puppystuff, double xl hooters at dawn, meat chucking, Huge flyfishing adventures and campfire hijinx next year.

    Edit-I'm considering never wearing any more Simms gear on these trips (all STP purchased at almost sane prices, where they usually have good stuff for pLumpy folks) for fear of being "that guy". Forgot to dole out the Nate Karnass stickers, so they'll be in the mini-mo'ship for next spring.

    Sorry I missed this. I met and fell hard for a fisher person of the female persuasion a few months ago. Unfortunately, for my local fishing she resides in the land of Underoos. So I have been making the trek to Colorado every spare moment.

    Good work! Maybe bring her along? I will hold my farts and keep offensive comments to a minimum.
