Sorry I missed you all last Friday...what a cool looking variety of pattern shapes and colors. I can hardly wait to get mine and start tossing them out to greedy fat SRC. Kelvin, sorry I could not come through and show up.

Who won best in class? I'm sure it was not me but a few of these are pretty incredible.
No problem and you were missed!
you won
but you had to be present to win so we gave the $25.00 gift certificate to Steve

If you guys voted for me it was a sympathy vote for the tyer with the most thumbs.

Congrats Steve! I missed the beers. I was scheming to fish with Rob then ride with him and have my own designated driver...but he did not know my plan!

time for another face to face swap you can make it to
after the salmon are done running...


sand lance and shrimp patterns I think............
 
Really, Ed, I didn't win but I would agree that it's time for another swap. I like the sandlance and shrimp deal but I actually thought maybe a salt water pattern swap might work well, too. What do you guys think? I loved the face to face swap because I got to put some faces to names. The beer and food were good as well.

Steve, sounds you are ready to host the next one. . . Put it up and we will join!
iagree

The flies look great guys! Too bad I couldn't make it, but I hope my contribution will result in a tight line or two!!

I've been working on some epoxy sandlance patterns that I am going to try out this week. They look good to me, let's just hope the fish like 'em.
 
I'll think about it. I have to think of a good palce to meet if we do a face to face. The Tides was okay but a bit noisy and crowded for me. I'd prefer something a bit quieter where we can talk fishing and flies without having to scream. All that aside, the food was pretty good and the beer was cold.

I like the idea of another swap -- I had a great, great time, and the photos turned out pretty well. Shrimp and sand lance sounds good -- and why not think about pink salmon flies?
We're all about to spend way too much time out there with those pinks -- hopefully!
 
I agree with Banzai, good idea Matt. Let's have the get together at a fish able beach park. BTW Matt, nice fly. I like the sandlance idea too. How about an epoxy sandlance swap?

Okay. This will be a relatively long one so bear with me. I'll host a face to face at our family property in Dash Point. Let's do a salt water pattern swap. I propose that we meet on Friday, August 14th at about 5:00 P.M. I have picnic tables, BBQ, etc. I'll provide Burgers and Buns and I'll probably have some Coronas in the tub of ice (also provided). You guys bring whatever strikes your fancy. All I ask is that we don't make a mess as I'll have to clean it up. There is also plenty of space to practice casting if you like and a great view of Maury Island across the way. I'd like to keep it at about 12 of us as parking at the place is very limited. A bathroom is available in the house.

The tides are favorable, high at around 8:00 a.m AND 7:00 P.M., lows at about 1:30 P.M and midnight. We can't fish from the property because the place is on the bluff. Neighbors have a stairway (157 down and about 300 up) but the Dash Point County Park is only about 2-3 minutes away. Parking will be at a premium as the Pinks should be all over the place so if you carpool it would be more advantageous.

That's the date I can do it but the time is flexible. Let me know who's in. I'm working on a Pink and White salt water fly - should be okay for Pinks as well. Directions will follow as soon as we establish who is coming.
