I'm so excited! Bill Monroe just called and he told me that he has to see to it that I get a springer!

THANK YOU BILL!

...and what a trip it will be!

So, he invited me, Thursday, with John Shmilenko (The Daddy of Sellwood Bridge Springer Fishing!) and Peter Sleeth, The Daily Oregonian's embedded Iraq reporter. I don't know if I will be able to fish while I'm listening to Baghdad stories very well, but it will be a blast!

How fun!

I WILL catch a Willamette Springer yet!!!

That's pretty tough pressure, Jen...don't get so excited you forget Bill. We need all the tags we can get. Oh, and it's Peter Sleeth. He was one of two reporters over there.

We won't get there until the afternoon, it turns out, but please come by and say hello to her. John's boat is a 20-foot Alumaweld.

If you get a fish on, near us, please don't come too close to our boat, or I'll grab that rod right out of your hands.

You bet I'll take a springer hand off! Even if you don't hand it to me! :smile:

I'm already so worked up that I don't think I'll get one. :depressed:
I can feel it now.. It's going to be one of those nights where I wake up every half hour, and think... "Something good is going to happen today, what is it?" and then, I remember, "OH YEAH! I'm going fishing! Is it time yet?"

Nope.... snoooze for a while, and wake up and repeat that ALL NIGHT LONG!

Nothing is worse, nor better!

Well Mr. Bill are you feeling the pressure yet???

Jennie I hope you get at least one springer. But why stop there. Go ahead and limit out and show the boy's up. Good luck!
