  1. Arthur,

    If you can't get a ride, let me know and I will pick you up somewhere. I cannot give you a ride home because I have to work the shop.

    Leland.
     
  2. I would love to go and show of my skills and maybe learn some two-handed casting. But got soccer:(
     
  3. leland, thanks for the offer but it would be to much trouble sinse we are in the opposite directions of ben howards.

    but thanks!

  4. I'll be there. The Whidbey Island club is suppose to have a booth that I'll show how to tye at.
     
  5. I could come by and pick you up. I am coming from Marysville.

  6. SOOOOOO theyre i tried to invite some friends but they dont get why fly fishing ROCKS but me my dad and little bro will show up for shureeee
    we should have a little washington fly fishing booth LOL
     
  7. I'll be there if I can get someone to give me a beer or maybe two !!!
     
  8. Depends on what her Ladyship's got planned. Since she works still, and I don't, it's something of a "good thing" to follow closely that line in the Preamble..."ensure domestic tranquility"...as it were.....
     
  9. Brother, we're in the same predicament. However, the (domestic) warden has given me a pass for the day to attend the event; I'm there! :thumb:
     
  10. I do believe that the misses, girls and I will plan a camping outing in that area. She realizes that I plan on going on the 20th so beign closer will garner more family time. I am looking forward to seeing some friends, making new ones and making a fool of myself with a rod in hand that I clearly can't handle.
     
  11. Ed,
    Bring the family to the event, the park has a great kids play area, even a skate park for the older kids! I hope to get my neice (5 yo) to the event as well as my friends boys (5 and 8).

    Also, there are some nice raffle items, including a set of Kirk's (ItchyDog's) "Olive the Little Woollybugger" books! http://olivethewoollybugger.com/

    Bill :beer2:
     
  12. Thanks Bill. If we do all come, and I'm hoping we will, I'll see you again then. If we happen to win the raffle we might have to hand that prize off to someone who does not yet have the set. Whenever Itchy has a book to go to print I'm waiting in line! I'm looking forward to this event and hopefully getting some pointers on that elusive two hander.
     
  13. hey ed, if its by chance a 5-6wt, ill trade you that glass rod for the top section. :)
     
  14. Arthur, I was referring to the Itch Doy series of Olive the Woolly Bugger books not the switch rod. I don't have enough Kharma to win a fly rod. Must be my storied past.
