    I would love to and also think it would be great uif someone else wanted to orginize it and find a different location for it
    I have aplace in Cle Elum near the Yakima River so we could do it there and go fishing as well

    lol, just saying we should do both, not trying tosay you hijacked it in a bad way. But I really liked the idea of white elephant exchange for flies at the last holiday swap and have been waiting for someone to bring it up this year. I already have a couple flies in mind.

    that being said, I have been tying lots of streamers this week. almost decided on a pattern.

    As the original poster, I am not offended at all and I have now caught several species of fish on the flies I "stole" that Pat Lat tied. I'll up my game if I can make it to a face to face this year.

    I saw that pattern at ps fly co. It was a bit bigger and white/natural I'm assuming it was designed with bull trout in mind. I tied some up in all color variations for winter dollies
