^ newguy (well here at least)

It's a bit of a drive up from NY, but I may try to get to the Roscoe Diner for bfast before heading over to the CCFFM.

This is my first time attending this event - and judging from the photos on the Facebook forum - looks like last year was a hoot. I'm not sure if I'll have the time between now and then - but I'm going to be looking to swap some red quill duns or parachutes for whatever other folks are fishing :)

Last photo in this post is me, my wife and Walt on a trip last spring.

Everyone is welcome. We need to pay the heat bill.

You know I've, been fishing the bkill since I was 25 and even went to Binghamton. Ironically enough - I have NEVER been to the Roscoe diner - passed it a million times but for some reason I kept saying "next time next time".

I'll keep the robin hood diner for the next trip up with the wife but for this pass I'm going to finally pop my Roscoe Diner cherry.

On a completely unrelated topic - I just made reservations at the West Branch Angler for May for our anniversary - currently trying to decide whether to go guided or with just a rented McKenzie.

I guess that means I'll be trading for Hendricksons at the Fly Fest :)

Cheers

And you will have money left over for lunch too

I second that, the Robin Hood it is, will be there bright and early and then off to "The Fest-tivities" :lol: CJ

I plan on going down for a bit, no sure how long I can stay. I tend to be at the Robin Hood around 8 am, hope to see some of you there.

you can fuss all you want about breakfast (i'm a robin hood guy) but after a nice cold day on the ice for me, some of us are going to have a little toddy and head to the rockland house for din-din. prime rib baby!

wow - mac v pc, iphone v android, vanilla / chocolate...

who knew Breakfast could be such a hot topic! But you guys have me thinking that Robin Hood might make more sense...if I'm going to be in my car for 2 hours to get there, it seems to make more sense to hit the one closer to me rather than drive out to Roscoe then back to the CCFFM

If you don't mind a little extra company - I'll do my best to get there around pancake time :)

Cheers

Lito
