Dang good folks you didnt know existed.
The third weekend of August several of us got together at Ferryville Wis to put together faces with names here on IDO.
The plan was to do some fishing, hang out and just enjoy being away from work.
I call it going to Christopher Robins hundred acre woods, no cares, no worries, etc.
I had announced this on a reply to one thread here and shortly after I get a PM from someone whom I had never knew existed
and they wanted to help us find fish on the river.
I was astonished as to why this person would do such a thing without ever having any interaction before now so I quizzed him why.
His reply was that he had been a lurker for a long time and followed my replies a lot here.
After swapping phone numbers and email addresses I found we had a lot in common which made me feel a bunch better!!
The reason I write this is a tribute to Jkresin, he sought me out because he thought it was neat how I help so many out here
and he wanted to help me out even though I have never done anything for him, I am still overwhelmed that someone would do that for me!
Thanks Jkresin!! best fishes to you and Gail!
We met up at the cabin Fri afternoon before the rest of the gang started showing up and I instantly felt comfortable around Jkresin.
His friend Gail joined us and she is a treasure as well.
The information he shared was quite useful and his directions were spot on, good thing too as I had no idea of where I was going or what to do.
As good as his info was I still managed to put on a show proving that I can shut down fishing anywhere I go even though
I shared Mike M’s boat, I gotta tell ya, Mike is the fish whisperer as he had enough power to catch a few fish to prove that they were there.
Jkresin loaned his salt rifle to battle flies with, man, we had a blast with that thing!! you could literally kill several flies in one shot!
Grown men living it up blasting and killing flies with a round of table salt, such silliness!!
We only got to fish for a few hours before being rained off of the river but the experience was well worth it!
I could tell many stories of that weekend but the others who joined us need to tell their version, especially EPG !!
Rodwork and his wife?? well, he can tell their version of staying up too late ha ha.
What a neat place Sparklesonthewater found for us to stay in and set up for all to enjoy, thank you dear for doing that!!
A great time and ready to do it again!!
Heres to ya Jkresin and Gail! A heart felt thanks for everything you did for us that weekend!
J, with the thousands of hours you spend on the sippi, now that you and Gail are members here you need to start parting with some of your wisdom!!
We will meet again soon.
