    With a hopper like that I will have to go to the Yak!


    Mine are done. I won't be able to make the face to face so Ed, I will mail them or we can meet up to fish sometime.

    Any chance you have this Friday off? I have the day off to fish and our first talent show in the evening. Otherwise let me know what you have in mind. Remember, I'm anti-US Postal.

    Nice looking flies Sean!! I have finished my salt pattern. A baitfish pattern that I did well last summer on with SRC's, especially on sunny days. But still undecided on the freshwater. I was thinking about doing a EHC, but now am thinking about a bunny leech for steel. Any thoughts on what you gentlemen prefer?

    Well, I haven't even picked patterns yet (do I win something for being slow?)

    You win the challenge of getting your plan, pattern and flies together in the least amount of time?

    I know of a good UPS guy, but really this friday looks doubtful and the weekend is packed with moms day activities.

    Matt, if you want to meet up some time, I'm in Lynnwood and can meet you somewhere and bring your flies with me. Just trying to help out.

    Ben, that sounds cool if Matt is up for it. Matt, sound off and let us know. Rob...wasted no time making that decision and sitting down at the vise. Kudos to you. I turned out a few more of my baitfish tubes last night before crashing.
