    Hey Kelvin, My other commitment on the 19th is in the morning. I should be done a little before noon so I'll be able to make it to the event. Might be a tad late with having to catch the ferry. I can demo the ever popular Camo Carey again this year if there's any interest.

    Have up dated list

    I was busy on the Klickitat

    I added two more spots
    This will work as long as there is an even number of people
    No one needs to tie more flies, just bring two sets of 5 flies

    If we do not have an even number I will tie 5 of the fly I got this one on

    This sounds like a lot of fun and if you dont mind i would love to join in. Plus i am new to the forums and I think it would be a great opportunity to get new flies and make some new friends.

    no doubt this is a great way to put faces to names and learn from many years of experience tying and fishing
    We did this last year and I learn so much from everyone
    especialy Larry and Gene

    Steve is awesome
    Islander did a great demo last year and has offered to do one this year
    and I know I will have nothing but good things to say about everybody that comes this year!
    My tying has really improved this year from last years get together.

    I have to say the guys at the shop are also a wealth knowledge, are fun to talk to, and love fishing
    I am really looking forward to this event !

    I have mine tied. Royal Wulff and a fly that was called a wooly bugger when given to me but it looks more like a Carey Special variation.

    I'm finished with ten but checked the posts and found that there are now twelve. I will make some more just for the fun. I have a low water, steelhead coachman and a searun baitfish pattern. I've used the coachman lots but the baitfish is new to me and I'll be using it this coming weekend.

    Is there any other way? and doughy biscuits fer the xtra gravey.
    Had a little fresh ground elk that was callin' my name.

    The fishing lately has been pretty good but I see the daphnia is coming back with falling water temps. Slammed 'em last week on emergers about a foot deep but the flies were too small to get pics with pierced lips.
    Reckon ya'll gonna have to believe me when I say they work. he he

    I have never participated in a fly swap before. Should we tie 14 flies?

    Jerry,
    Tie me some extra flies and I'll bring ya' some cornbread n honey.

    Kelv,
    I should bring a pot of beans and hamhocks with mexican cornbread. We'd have a little fun during the swap but the fly shop might not sell much after our visit!
