Kf - Floatilla is open to everybody. The event is just a get together of us cyber fishers to actually get a line wet. Floatilla 1 was on the Satsop I believe if I remember correctly, (it was in Washington) Floatilla 2 was on the S. Santiam last winter, and Floatilla 3 was back in Washington on the N. Fork Lewis, Floatilla 4 is planned late May or Early April for springers near the mouth of the Multnomah Channel. Since it is a ways off Spooled is trying to put together a Floatilla 3.5 trip in January.
Its just a good time, and those that can actually catch a fish get to talk some smack till the next floatilla because they walked the walk, and those that talk smack about how much fish they catch thru out the year, get the chance to show the rest of us, if they are hot air or if they can actually fish. There are some patterns developing with only 3 floatillas to date.
