Puget Sound Face to Face Fly Swap and Casting Gathering


Active Member


Gathering is at Steve's place address to follow
May 15th Saturday
starting at noon and going till Steve throws us out

Love to have people willing to demo two handed casting
Tying techniques
eat some BBQ and generally have a great time
thinking of some place like Lyons Park on the water
(open to other Ideas)

Swap your favorite Sea Run Cutthroat or Salmon Fly

A number of you have asked me to teach a Flatwing class so I would be happy to demo those

Maybe find a way to have this benefit Project Healing Waters have some veterans come have a chance to fly fish Puget Sound

What would you like to contribute?

We see each other on here all the time
Why not meet face to face learn from each other have a good time and make a difference
I know a place where we can have it. It doesn't have a lot of parking, as you know but there's plenty of place to lawn cast, a BBQ, tables, and there are two or three of the 10X10 canopies and depending on time and tide the flat out front goes out about 200 feet and a half mile wide. :thumb:
I have never participated in any of these but feel it is high time to get off my fat booty and do it - but my schedule limits me to the weekend. I can bring an 8/9 switch rod, some single handed home built lines that work pretty well, some flys if I know which ones you want, my tying stuff, and would love to check out the flat wings. Also food, beverage, or cash.
If this is a swap- I could look in Les's book and tie something up.
Sounds like a great idea to me! Perhaps someone could show me how to play around with my new switch. However I too am limited to weekends.

Sure sounds good to me. I need to meet people and find my way around.
Also it sure would be nice to have someone to fish with oonce in a while.
Set a time and I'll do my best, I'm tying as best I can from Les's book too.
Am also flexible on dates and time.

Seems Lions Park in Bremerton has just closed for a year long renovation. Should still be able to walk the shore to fish it but the grounds will be less accessible as they remove pavement and create a more natural park experience. Evergreen Park in Bremerton could be a site, lots of grounds but the beach is less ideal than at Lions.
Scenic beach in seabeck would be a nice place and wouldn't be crowded. I think they have a comunity building we could possibly reserve.

I'd love to go; any weekend in April or May works for me! I'm definitely interested in the fly swap... I just started tying and haven't tied much for saltwater, but could definitely tie up some reverse spiders or any other simple pattern which you all suggest. Also would love to help out with the veterans -- I've done some stuff with PHW in the past and had a blast. Looking forward to fishing with you all!

Sounds good. I'm in depending on the date. I'll probably bring the grommet as well. He likes sitting around bullshitting about fishing, so he'll fit right in.
