As to the crowds on the SJR, if you hang around the Kittie/Kiddie Pool you will have lots of company.  I have found that if you hike downstream a ways, the crowds will thin out, at least that is my recollection of condtions about ten years ago.  I'll be there in a few weeks and I may be singing a different tune when I get back.
 
I plan on fishing the lower end of the river this time.  


If you're coming in a few weeks it will not be as busy, and it's always less busy down stream from T-hole. So you will have less stress for sure! Haha

I hope you're right.  I can't wait to get my feet wet again. Pun intended.biggrin.png

 

Perhaps I'll run into you, if you're on the water.

I work at float n fish, which is a fly shop on the San Juan, so maybe I'll see ya there also. They have the best selection there in my opinion, and the owner keeps the prices very reasonable also. I'm the guy with the big red beard, so you will know it's me if I'm working. Say hi!

Glad you brought up, FnF - it would be awesome if their website were interactive.  I have noticed that you carry Lagartun wire, but there is no way to purchase it on line, that I could figure out anyway.  You may, in fact, not have any in stock, but at any rate, IMO, you're probably losing a lot of sales if we cannot purchase on-line.

 

Is FnF part of Abe's or not affiliated at all?

 

Yes, I'll recognize the red beard.  I will introduce myself if I see you.  I do plan to drop into the FnF fly shop when I get there.

 

Thanks for the info.

I've been begging my boss to get an E-commerce site up. He has great prices and selection. I think the online thing would do well for him. Maybe at one point I can talk him into it.

Yes I believe we do have that wire. You can always call in and we can take orders on the phone.

No we aren't associated with Abe's.

I'll be sure to drop in and maybe I'll have a chance to talk to him.  I really think you may be missing out on some on-line sales.

I do website development, believe me, I know the potential. Haha. In fact I offered to do it for him, he is interested but still can't seem to talk him into making the move you know? Oh well.
