    I'll be floating the canyon all day on the 18th, christening in a bunch of new skwala patterns. I haven't decided where yet though. I will definitely be in the area that weekend. How about meeting up near cle elum on the 19th?

    Would love to go but I can't. I will mail my creations to you this week. I have one fly for each of you, that would be 3 total.... wish I could come out to play, but not in the cards yet. I need an address. Have fun and enjoy.

    I received Mike's ties yesterday. Top notch Mike!

    I'll hopefully post a picture of a big yak bow with your fly in its mouth.

    So, my plans have changed a bit for Saturday. I am going to be floating the river of Friday, then heading back to the Cle Elum area (Golf Course Rd.) and will be going to the fall river for Spey casting practice on Saturday morning. Kelvin, what time will you be going past the Cle Elum area on Friday or Saturday? Maybe we could meet up somewhere other than the river.
