    Unfortunately I can't make it to tommorrow's fly swap. I have family from out of state visiting for a few days (bad timing). I can distribute flies at the next salt fly swap, and maybe post some photos. Hope you guys have fun.

    My father in law is also on a surprise visit stop over on his way to fly fish in Alaska (no, he did not invite me. Yes, he goes annually. No, he's never invited me. He is still the coolest fly angler I know, he just does not want me to blow a bunch of money and not be able to pay my family bills.) I'll be driving to Rob's place to hand over my flies. He'll bring them along and collect my share from each of you. Sorry that I can't make the face to face...unless I can convince him to come along then the misses might cut me loose.

    Oh Ed,
    You gotta convince him to come. He'll have fun. Who knows, maybe after this bonding session, he'll invite you to Alaska. I hear they have rivers in Alaska you can walk across on the backs of Salmon. Come on, a sweet talker like you, you can do it.

    Sorry I missed you all last Friday...what a cool looking variety of pattern shapes and colors. I can hardly wait to get mine and start tossing them out to greedy fat SRC. Kelvin, sorry I could not come through and show up.

    Who won best in class? I'm sure it was not me but a few of these are pretty incredible.

    No problem and you were missed!
    you won
    but you had to be present to win so we gave the $25.00 gift certificate to Steve

    If you guys voted for me it was a sympathy vote for the tyer with the most thumbs.

    Congrats Steve! I missed the beers. I was scheming to fish with Rob then ride with him and have my own designated driver...but he did not know my plan!

    time for another face to face swap you can make it to
    after the salmon are done running...

    sand lance and shrimp patterns I think............

    Really, Ed, I didn't win but I would agree that it's time for another swap. I like the sandlance and shrimp deal but I actually thought maybe a salt water pattern swap might work well, too. What do you guys think? I loved the face to face swap because I got to put some faces to names. The beer and food were good as well.
