North end of the Everglades with queen sized bed loads of fly tie stuff. Lots of good Mexican and Cuban food around, fun bars and old dudes in speedos on the beach.

I'll pole and show you places where fish should/maybe actually live.

I have all the rods and reels

I'm off work at 12:30pm m-f and off weekends. I can pick up at ft myers or punta gorda.

Great idea! I was lucky enough to experience Mad_Mike's hospitality. Anyone can come to Birmingham and I will take you to eat good food and drink beer. There is fishing close by, but trust me, you'd be happier doing one of the other options.

wow air https://wowair.co.uk/ now flies, via iceland with unlimited stopovers, to the local airport [bristol uk, 15 minutes away] from several US and canadian locations [SF included] for stupidly cheap deals

otherwise, LHR is only an hour and a half down the road, can pick up from either

would be more than happy to provide bed and board to any drakians wishing to take advantage of the current exchange rate

it would be my pleasure :cool

I can offer a tour of the best retention ponds Charlotte has to offer. One is right behind the mall. The good mall with a five guys and a Aveda store. You will catch stunted bluegills and 1-2lbs bass. There maybe be some carp action and there is the guarantee that some underemployed wanna be cop will run us off. Enticing, right.

But, we could always drive to another Drakians area, like Franny's or something.

I don't have much to offer in return which is why i try to buy gas, booze, food and 8 balls. And pretty decent photos.

If you're coming to Chucktown and don't let one of us know, you're doing it wrong.

The pointy end of the gheenoe is ready and available anytime that I'm in town.

Some of my most memorable trips have been affiliated with a few of the fine folks on this board. The Drakian hospitality is unlike anything I have ever been around. Winter in North GA gives us about five months of great striper fishing which is just starting to kick in. I have a spare room for you to crash in and a wife that can cook.

I usually don't have the schedule to offer up define times but this summer I'll be more free during the months of late June and most of July.

Camping trip up for anyone who wants to join to chase hatches, hopper fish, streamer fish, mouse etc depending on conditions in northern MI/ the yoop. Feel free to contact if you'll be in the area.
