    If you have to spend your Friday nite with your "honey" then you don't fish enough or you haven't been married long enough...... :rofl: :D

    Well stated Larry! David, great offer on the ferry shuttle services. Who do we have coming from that side anyway? Matt Smith, Dinker, Ben? If there are more than David can transport I might extend the same offer. I recommend that you guys let us know so we can plan.

    I'll have to look at my schedule, but I might take you up on the shuttle offer. If I'm driving from down south I might just drive there. I will let you know soon.

    100% chance of me showing up on the 13th.
    0% chance of showing on the 15th.

    It is what it is. You can't make everyone happy, if you could, we'd have whirled peas.

    If anyone is able to pick-up/drop off in Kingston, that would be great, if not, then I can do Bainbridge. Either way, a ride would be much appreciated.

    Michaels, think about when you might be able to meet up with me before and again after the 15th. Sorry that Friday is a bad day for you to greet the gang. Some of the characters in this swap are certainly worth meeting.

    Great work kelvin...see that gang, kelvin is done. I have tied three conehead tube baitfish so far. I think they will fish nice, but I'm not nearly done like kelvin.

    Wow Kelvin, could you tie my share as well. :clown: I think you just broke the fly swap speed record! Since this is your first one, let me give you some advise. Next time PROCRASTINATE! fiddle around for the month or so, tie one or two. Then at the last minute tie them all and post that they are going to be late. You'll do better next time I'm sure. :clown:

    Good work I can't wait to fish them!

    Now i have to figure out what the hell I'm gonna do. Ed gimme some ideas tomorrow. :beer2:

    I'm thinking you guys might be stuck with some genuine Popsicle Sticks and some Calibaetis Emergers for you lake fisherman... although I haven't fully decided. At least I know they catch fish! Or are you looking for some fancy shit? :D
