Here's my pink Clouser. Not overly pleased with it, but I guess it'll do. If I have time I may try tying a baitfish pattern that I've been working on (in my head) that uses a wadd. shank, too. We'll see about that, though. Looking forward to the 15th!
Matt, I should be free after tomorrow (Thursday) night. So let me know.
I know there were a few offers to pick people up from the ferries, do any of you Kitsap guys live close to the Kingston Ferry? It's a lot closer for me, but either way, let's get some finalized plans on when and where us King/Snohomish guys can be picked up from, if the offer is still on the table.
Ben, I might still be able to pick up at Kingston. I will probably have to leave work a bit early, pick up kids, drop them at home then go to the ferry terminal at Kingston. It is about 10 minutes from my house. If we can work out sailing times then it could be a go. Thanks for hooking up with Matt to get his flies from him. Matt, I can gather all of yours together and hand them over at our next meeting...which is when by the way? Ed
Sorry for my oversight. The meeting date is actually Friday May 15th. Place Voodies on Front Street in Poulsbo's quaint downtown. Time 6:30. See you all there unless previous engagements require that you pass flies to others to bring along or [gulp] you have to mail them to me in advance.
Hey mumbles, thanks for putting this together, but the family is headed out for the first camping trip of the year on that Friday, so I won't be at the shin-dig. At least the camping trip is at nice little beach where a few cutties can be found. :thumb:
If you PM me an address, I'll get you my flies, but instead of sending flies back to me, maybe we can meet somewhere on a beach for the exchange. You PM'd me about a beach a while back. It could work as a good meeting spot if you're up for it.
To everyone else, thanks in advance, and I'm sorry I can't make the festivities. Please feel free to drink my share of the beer.
I know Edmonds is a bit north, but I'm in N. Seattle, so it's really not that much farther than downtown when you consider traffic. I think Edmonds will be the more 'mellow' route!
Finished my salties, and am now working on my freshies. I decided to tie a rendition of the green butt skunk, but it's tied with squirrel instead of white calf so I'm going to call it the the 'green butt squirrel'. I think it will work in low clear conditions well especially with a little tasty dropper!
