    Would love to get in on this and make it my first WFF fly swap, if that's alright. I'll definitely be there, and am happy to bring food/beer/whatever.

    Count me in for the swap and for grilled jalepeno poppers or something else, I'm fine with whatever you need.

    There are about fifteen parking spots a half block up the hill at the school yard. No problems to bring stuff down, drop it off and then park. I may have to rent a sani-can, however as the house bathroom probably won't handle all of us.

    I'd like in on this Kelvin. I'll be tying a baitfish pattern using Gartsides Secret Stuff.

    I want in the swap if there is still room. Not much of a cook but can contribute in drinks and dessert as in store bought pies.

    Mumbles should be able to give some help with that and I don't know the others. I'm just starting the class with Aaron

    I'm willing to share what I know. I do not know much. I'll bring a switch rod or two, single handers with airflo 40+ lines and a stripping basket or two. If we are tying I'll bring some tying stuff and a vise too.

    A very special treat for all of us; Les Johnson and wife Carol have accepted an invitation to our gathering. Hopefully the weather will be great and Les' health will improve so we can all get a chance to sit and talk with them and pick up some of that wisdom. I'm thrilled as I have never had the priveledge of meeting Les and look forward to maybe getting my copy of his book autographed! Hope to see all of you there.
