    Call me what you wish, be creative, I've heard most of them before. I've been Mumbles for as long as I can remember.

    Thanks Ben. I hear Matt's flies look great and yours do too. My flies look like ass but I'm done. I augmented the two patterns that I tied for this swap with a few bonus flies from my other swap tying. I look forward to meeting and seeing everyone on Friday.

    Any last minute issues, let us hear them.

    Hey, by the way I have Friday off. I'll be dropping of the girls at school then I'm free until the face to face swap in the evening...anyone fishing besides me? I'd love to try out my new trout reel and new spey rod. Beach, river, lake, retaining pond, puddle?

    Ed, I usually get off work around 230 on fridays and I plan on driving straight from work to where we are meeting. I wouldnt mind finding a local beach to mess around on for a bit before everyone else meets to do the swap.

    Details, details? If I can't get something setup I'm gonna hit a lake...but I'm always happy to explore a new beach. Right now my schedule needs and Sean's don't align very well. I'm available earlier and he is available later.

    I think I'm going to troll one of Matt's Thorne River Emerger's behind the ferry to Bainbridge Is. Make sure they work. ;)

    Hey Ben, that makes two of us! Although trolling behind the ferry it would be a serious top water pattern, as those boats move fast! :rofl:

    Hey Guys. I was just told "Viking Fest" starts Friday in Poulsbo. Apparently it will be crowded all over town. I wonder if D3Smartie can reserve a corner in the bar!!?

    I know it's last minute, but do we want to change to a non-poulsbo location to avoid the viking fest hoards? and if so anybody under 21 (might limit some locations).
