    I won't be able to make the meet-up but I can tie some pretty good marabou's if that's of interest.

    Scratch that - I have some great rare fur that would go great on a streamer - something like a Mickey Finn in coho colors.

    Larry, I can't take it any more. I've not tied a single fly since taking my new job. I'm in. No idea what I'll tie, but I'll come up with something. I think I'll tie up a popper. Not as awesome as Leland's, but I'll give it a go.

    Great Ed! Certainly would look forward to a popper! I haven't decided yet. You're on the list!

    We'll definitely set something up for the following week. I'm doing some recon today and Monday and I'll see if I can't find a spot or two that proves worthwhile.

    Great Eric. I think they have a few salmon in California, right? Love to have you. Welcome. You are the last guy on the list. So, now were full up for tiers.

    OK Pals, we have one dozen tiers. So that means you need to tie up 11 flies (12 if you want one for yourself).
    Please read the section titled "How a Fly Swap Works" if you have not been in one. Reminder: If you are not attending the "face to face" swap at the Tides Tavern, then please get your flies in the mail on or before July 5 so I have them to pass out at the Tavern. There are good lunches available at the Tavern, and, the Gig Harbor Fly Shop is a one-minute walk away! Face to Face at the Tavern at 1:00 PM on July 10. Have fun tying! Crank those puppies out! -dryflylarry

    I've decided I'll be tying up a herring/baitfish fly. Probably loosely based on Ferguson's herring from his book. I'll try and get a pic as I tie some up and make sure y'all approve.

    No competition here! I'm gonna tie some simple thing instead of those expensive Thai type jobbies!
