    Coatesr,

    Be our guest this coming Tues evening at the Alpine Fly Fishers meeting in Puyallup. We meet at Puerto Vallarta Restaurant on 215 15th Street in Puyallup at 6:00 with a presentation at about 7:00. This month, we have Dave McCoy from Emerald Waters Anglers on western Washington streams and rivers. We can also hook you up wit 2 local FFF certified casting instructors. Try Pat Blackwell at 253-770-9477 or Jim Higgins at 253-350-5085. If you have any questions, or want to go fishing sometime, call me at 253-678-3683. As a matter of fact, one of our members moved to MT, but is visiting this week and we will be going to Munn Lake near Olympia one day; you'd be more than welcome. The website for the club is www.alpineflyfishers.org.
    Hope to see you at the meeting Tuesday.

    Bill

    No worries. Hope to see you in April. We meet every month except July and August. June is our club picnic which you are welcome to come too, also. Good luck at Rattlesnake. Woolie buggers probably take more fish than just about any other fly. Try olives and blacks, weighted and unweighted. This time of year, slow is the word. Severa of us fished Munn Lake in Olympia the other day. It was slow until about 3:00, then picked up a little. I ended up with 4 fat and feisty rainbows, 2 at 16" and 2 at 18".

    I think the Puget sound fly anglers out of Tacoma usually have casting lessons during the spring and summer at titlow park

    Coatesr, I live in Puyallup and also stationed on Fort Lewis. I'm in 16th CAB. I'd be more than happy to take you out fishing and help you get started. Plus you dont have to pay me which is a plus. PM me if your interested.
