I know Kings open but I will be in the bay area that weekend for work and
fishing for strippers if I can work it out and I think Gig Harbor is the place at this point
although given I live in Seattle that would be easy for me
again I will base it on what works best for the majority of the tiers
but let me know soon love to have ya cause I know the patterns will be good
well if it is between seattle and silverdale, I am in. if not, i am out. Its just too much of a cluster to go anywhere on a friday night at that time. I might also suggest about 1 week sooner, as the King season will be opening up and further complicating matters.
The new shop is practically across the street - just about a block away. It's small but they have a good selection of materials. I checked it out this past Saturday after fishing at Dock's Place. Good people. We are going to trade worms but I wouldn't object to brining other patterns if anyone else is interested. The Tides is okay with me. I haven't been there in a long time.
I just read the original thread that started this bad boy. Some great patterns in there. Funny, I was thinking about tying a snot dart before I saw it mentioned in the thread, Thera re one or two other possibilities as well.
