    Kelvin, maybe you could have someone take pictures of the steps in tying your flies. I'd love to see them when I get my sight back (?). I'm sorry to be missing the pot luck and hangin' out with you guys. Looking forward to being normal again and doing some fishing/tying.

    One of those "blue lines" in the WA, MT,
    Sounds good! I'll demo an Intruder and maybe the Miyawaki Beach popper. Looking forward to it, hope a fair number can show up. If the weathers decent we can also go down to Ben Howard or Lake Tye late in the day and do some casting or fishing.

    Ron also mentioned showing us some stuff as well, so if you can make it you should. See you guys there! :cool:

    "Gee I hope somebody can make it,I'd hate to have just flybill & I, we've all ready heard each others stories"


    I'll be there and I haven't seen Bill in almost a year. So I'm sure he has some new stories by now!
    I'll bring my stuff and tie Camo Careys for anyone who wants one.

    Islander - sorry to hear about your truck. I saw a real good deal on an f250 today here on the island. 2003, gas. I'll tell you more if you're interested.

    Wish I was headed to this swap with you but I have commited to climb mountains to obain a $5 christmas tree for the family near Quilcene. If that does not work, I'll call you for a carpool!

    Thanks Jeff, I just picked up a truck today.
    Fake injury and tell the family I'm taking you to physical therapy, should be a fun time. Steve

    Darn it! We're gonna miss you and I don't even know you.
    But I'm glad you're employed
