    3. Mozart?
    4. Rick
    5. Jeremiah (from Whidbey Is. but it's all good)
    6. Adam (also not tying but might buy a round)
    7. Paul

    I should have been more specific. I haven't had time to continue to learn to tie since Jack was born. My free time is limited and I'd rather fish then tie.

    Hanger? no. Paperweight? yes.

    I am open to suggestions. I was thinking that this one would be any flies that you have had success with around Bellingham. We can be more specific if people want to be.

    I am planning to tie a foam extended body mayfly pattern that has worked well at Squalicum Lake but am open to other theme suggestions.

    I'll jump in if it's allright. I'm down on Whidbey and you should know I am rather new to tying (and fly fishing for that matter), but if you'll have me I'll do it.

    Don't worry. We're friendly up here in the 'Ham (if a little smartassed). Especially with a few Boundary Bay IPAs in us.

    I'm good with just about anytime to meet. I need the time to be after 5:30 on weekdays and after 2:00 on Sundays. Saturday anytime is good.
    Is there a theme yet, or we sticking to any fly that's worked for us?

    I'll vouch for this guy.

    Adam, I've got an old school basic vise you can borrow if you want to give trying a go. I'm sure a few of the B-ham guys would be willing to teach you a few things.

    Alright, we now have 6 people but only 4 tying. I am hoping for at least 6 tiers so feel free to join if you want to. If you can't make it up here we can mail the flies too.

    I'm in Seattle, and have just taken up tying, so if scraggly balls of stuff count as a pattern, I think I know what I would tie.

    So, if you'll let me, knowing I'm a noob and geographically undesirable, I'd love to join. I'ld be aiming to join for the meet-up as well, provided the date & time work out.

    Oh, I have family in Whatcom county, does that help? :D

    I'm in, I haven't met anyone in Bellingham yet and need a reason to get behind the vise again. Plus I'm recently 21 this year and love BB's Imperial Oatmeal Stout :beer1: Not a fan of the IPA, am I still allowed?! :eek: Maybe it'll give me a chance to meet someone to go fishing with too.

    Paul, I find that little balls of fluff often catch flies so welcome aboard.

    FFB, sounds great, I love the Oatmeal stout as well. Happy Birthday.

    Now that we have enough people to make it worth our time to get tying...let's get a date set. Here are some dates. Please let me know (a) dates that you can't make it and (b) dates that you would rather not come. I'm just going to pick a date once I get the feedback but I hope everyone can make it. My date ranges should be far enough out to plan for and span the entire week so hopefully we can find a date that everyone can make it. Let me know!!!

    All dates either 6:30 or 7:00

    I'll try to make it but I won't get in on the tying. Likely will show up a lot earlier then 6:30 unless you guys meet on a Friday or the weekend then I won't make it at all. I fish on weekends and Fridays I head straight home from work to get ready to fish on Saturday.
