    This sounds good...gonna try to be there, if for no other reason than to taunt Leland from the back row of the audience.

    A small, and I do mean "small" sample of my steelhead flies, a "Fat Brat," modeled off Enos Bradner's great "Brad's Brat."

    I'm planning to be there, looking forward to it!

    Thanks,

    --Tracy

    Meant to ask: from the announcement, this appears to be a a pay at the door affair. Is that correct, or do I need to buy a ticket in advance?

    I'm pretty sure it's free to attend as it is a monthly meeting. There will be a charge for dinner and drinks like all meetings.

    Leland.

    Here's the fly I'll be tying at the meeting next Tuesday night. I call it "Fat Train." It has caught many a summer steelhead in the last two seasons for me and my friends.
