If anyone wants to work on set ups for steelhead and salmon, I'll have to see if Josh is free to teach a seminar.

Nice - Mitchell 308? Got a bunch of old Mitchell reels in my collection. Best reels ever.

I think the proverbial "birds nest" is something we don't need to teach. They are.......inevitable.

I took the pic. It was josh with the snafu. I've had quite a few of those. 4 nymph rig, indi, wind and trying to cast 50' while sitting in a pontoon equals lots of re-rigging.

308, yes sir. I'm also a fan of older GM's. Have a 408 and a couple 300's.

408? Yikes!

GM had a quality control problem on the ring gears on the 408's. They had a tendency to shed teeth. If you have one with teeth intact, and near perfect finish, you're sitting on a gold mine.

About 12 or 13 years ago, I had a contact that used to sell old reels at a flea market. He saved all the old Mitchells for me. One day he had a pretty grimy looking 408 for me that I bought for $5.

I cleaned it up, and it looked like new - no missing teeth. The 408's with a good ring gear were going for over $100 on fleabay, so I listed it for $150 "buy it now", since it looked so good.

When I went back to check the listing, it had already sold for the buy it now price. I can't even imagine what a perfect 408 with box and papers would go for now.

I think mine is one of the last generations of 408's. Bought it new in '79-ish along with the Fenwick Streamside UL rod you see in the pic. In '89 I had the rod's original wire guides replaced with Fugi single foot ceramics because they were grooved. Only issue I ever had with the 408 was with the bail not wanting to stay open: snapping closed in mid-cast....easily resolved with a little tune-up.Other than that, it's been a go-to combo for me for 30-something years.


Apologies to all for side tracking this thread.

I'll be bringing quite a bit of electrical stuff. Two phones, a Garmin, TV Monitor and Laptop. Sounds like a lot of you will need electric as well.

I'll bring along electric cables and extra surge protected splitters so we can all get the power distributed that we need. I have this stuff from my show kit.

My two phones are supposed to have hotspot capability although I haven't tested them but will in the next day or so. Each phone should allow up to 5 internet devices to connect and I'll be happy to let presenters that need internet connect to my hotspots. I'm sure hoping there is phone service from Verizon or that might be moot.

I also have quite a map collection. Will bring Delorme, Some 7.5 minute topos and some maps I've made as well. If anyone needs anything special, let me know, I might have it in my archives.

I'm planning to arrive late afternoon the 15th and stay overnight.

Can we get in early to set-up?

Hi Mike - Yes we can get in early to set up. I was given the security code to the alarm system, and plan on being there between 6:30 and 7 AM to set up.

I'm relatively sure the Verizon coverage is good there, and being able to access your "hotspot" is gonna really help with some of the presenters displays.

This is gonna be a really cool thing, as the stations on either side of you will mesh perfectly with your display. I don't think it it could have been planned to blend together any better!

H.A.
