    Thought I'd host a get together Feb,19. At my house. Do some tying, do some pizza/beer and talk shit. I live in Edmonds, have plenty of room and parking for say 12.

    As a added twist. We will mix this with a swap. You bring 9 of the same pattern, bagged in threes. 3x3. When we swap, you get 3 of each pattern back. Nothing as annoying as finding something that works and only having one of them. Bring mats. to tie up more of the same. That way, if anyone wants to see how it's done, you can show them.

    The goal will be tying for the Hohdown of course.

    Jeff, Saturday the 19th of February? What time? I think I'm up for that. Any Kitsap carpoolers wanting to go and split the ferry crossing let me know. I know where the Bandy man is located, his GPS lo-jack has been active and sending a strong signal.

    I'm a bit chaotic with hook and thread but pretty much house broken. I can bring food, bad jokes, and my own newspaper to sit on!

    Back in the 70's there was a saying "Life's shit, and then you die". Let's just say I've experienced the first part. I guess I'm just waitin' to die ;-) Haven't hoisted a rod or a tying spool in over a year. Gotta get back in to both. Anything off your beaches around that day? If it's going to be in the evening, I might try to hit the beach before hand! If my waders still fit!

    Yeah, that'd be great, esp. since I haven't a clue as to steelhead, & signed up for the hoh down anyway. Count me in.

    Jeff and others set to attend. I am very new to fly fishing and have yet to even cast fly to water. However, I would love the opportunity to attend and talk fishing with you guys. I don't tie, nor will I be fishing for steel any time in the near future. As such I wouldn't request anyone giving me flies. If you all consent I will bring beer, a great listening ear, and a mass of appreciation. Oh and I'm pretty good in the kitchen and could bring some sweet pies to eat after the pizza pies. Of course, I understand if I am not right for the situation.
