    "Gee I hope somebody can make it,I'd hate to have just flybill & I, we've all ready heard each others stories"


    I'll be there and I haven't seen Bill in almost a year. So I'm sure he has some new stories by now!
    I'll bring my stuff and tie Camo Careys for anyone who wants one.

    Islander - sorry to hear about your truck. I saw a real good deal on an f250 today here on the island. 2003, gas. I'll tell you more if you're interested.

    Wish I was headed to this swap with you but I have commited to climb mountains to obain a $5 christmas tree for the family near Quilcene. If that does not work, I'll call you for a carpool!

    Thanks Jeff, I just picked up a truck today.
    Fake injury and tell the family I'm taking you to physical therapy, should be a fun time. Steve

    Darn it! We're gonna miss you and I don't even know you.
    But I'm glad you're employed

    I have my flies tied and realized that I need them to you by Saturday.

    They won't get to you by mail now, so would it be okay for me to bring them to the swap or would it work out better for you sooner?

    I'll be there with a few flies, nothing fancy but will catch fish, and a pie. See ya! I won't be able to fish as I have to meet a friend later in the afternoon.

    I'm all packed and plan to leave early in the morning. Hope get camp set up and then get to the shop around 10am. I'd be up for some fishing later that day. Sunday I plan to do a little lake fishing and then head back home sometime Monday. If anyone wants to tag along you're more than welcome. Looking forward to seeing some folks I haven't seen in a while and meeting some new ones.
