    I have my flies tied and realized that I need them to you by Saturday.

    They won't get to you by mail now, so would it be okay for me to bring them to the swap or would it work out better for you sooner?

    I'll be there with a few flies, nothing fancy but will catch fish, and a pie. See ya! I won't be able to fish as I have to meet a friend later in the afternoon.

    I'm all packed and plan to leave early in the morning. Hope get camp set up and then get to the shop around 10am. I'd be up for some fishing later that day. Sunday I plan to do a little lake fishing and then head back home sometime Monday. If anyone wants to tag along you're more than welcome. Looking forward to seeing some folks I haven't seen in a while and meeting some new ones.

    Great job Kelvin for putting the swap together! The relish you mixed up went well with the Italian sausage you grilled, nicely done!
    We'll definitely have to go find some steelhead to tie into soon.

    Big kudo's to you Bill (hope are you feeling better, and no, I don't want to know what it is/was :clown:) for getting the meeting set up at Ron's shop.

    Ron, a big THANK YOU for letting us have it there, it was great to meet some new fellow anglers and see some familiar faces again.

    Gene it was great to talk to you again and thanks for the flies! We definitely have to go after some bass next summer..

    And I cannot foreget Islander Steve for tying some quality flies and sharing them with us too.
