    Man, you guys are some serious "thread artists." I'm thinking these flies will make a good exhibit for the Seattle Art Museum!
    Had alot of fun. Thanks for making the effort to come out. That was some serious clam chowder. Do they sell that by the gallon?

    View attachment 38661 View attachment 38662 View attachment 38663 View attachment 38664 Lets see if I can post some pics.Looks like I got them where I want them, These were the gentlemen at the swap in Gig Harbor today.We enjoyed chating and trading fllies and then joined the staff at the newly moved Gig Harbor Fly Shop To critique the new look. I think we all accepted the change as being the right move..I'm sorry if I missed anyone other than myself. Should have taken some at the shop but I didn't.

    Hey, DFL, thanks for the swap idea and putting it together. Fun times getting the info on these patterns and meeting up with some good tiers. Now to tie up some size 10 or larger saltwater stuff, then back to the sub 18 sizes. See you soon!

    I received my flies yesterday evening. Although it was late and I was tired I had to take a peek. Great flies, very well tied, so many different pattern types. I wish you all would have tied me six of each! Thank you Larry, great swap idea, sorry I missed the face to face. I'm very glad I joined up. I know, I know...my files were the weakest link, yet again. It will catch some dumb trout though, they like the iridescent colors.
