    Yahoo! We're going fishing again!!

    Join the fun of making a new friend or two, while learning a thing or two, over a cast or two, while drinking a beer or two. As we yell out "FISH ON". LOL :)  You don't need a watercraft, but it wouldn't hurt. If you have extra watercraft like a float tube, pontoon or kayak please bring it.

    8,000 trout planted this month at this beautiful nearby lake. About 30 minute drive from Seattle.  

     MEET UP @ 

    Lake Meridian Park & Boat Launch.

    Kent launch charges a fee of $5:00

    As always, we're calling out to mentors with extra rod, watercraft or room in a boat for 1 or 2 for hour or two. Show up anytime, especially in the afternoon.

    The Plan is to have multiple meetup times, during the day. So feel free to join us at anytime.

    Since the best fly fishing is often the evening hatch. "that's the last few hours of the day".  So this fairly good plan, but feel free to do your own thing.
