    NOTICE: For those that can make it---The Face to Face meeting is February 5 at the Tides Tavern--Gig Harbor! 11:00 AM

    Looking for 10-12 tiers that want to put some dry midges or topwater emergers in their box, and see what others have to offer in their “lake patterns” for Puget Sound lakes. The “due date” would be January 31st. I know there are some dry fly guys out there. I’m looking at nothing larger than size 18’s. Any interest? An additional thought is to have a "face to face" swap at the Tides Tavern in Gig Harbor...

    That a boy Rob! So far, there doesn't appear to be many "takers". We shall see! I guess others are still in the steelhead mode. I might tie a surface midge that did well at Cady earlier this year.

    Larry,
    I've got a sz 18 midge emerger. Somewhat unique.

    Rob,
    Wanna help me come with a name for it!?

    I'm in: planning to get the loupe out and see how small the fingers will work. There are some really tiny hooks around here somewhere.

    OK. Welcome ansas! Got you on the list! Thanks for joining in.

    Kelvin--- You have a whole month to tie! Let me know, I don't think the Inn will fill up that fast on this one.

    Count me in. Not sure of the exact midge pattern but may a CDC midge emerger.
    Got to do a feather inventory first.

    Thanks for joining in "steeli"! We'll be looking forward to your flies!

    And Ron McNeal, I know you have a pattern sure to please. It must be "guaranteed" killer!

    Looks like we are getting some good tiers here. Who's next? Sign up! You might have to decide pretty soon Kelvin!

    Ok worked it out

    I would love to see this be a face to face
    the Tides makes some pretty awesome fish and chips
    and some tasty items on draft

    We should also stop by the Flyshop there
    Great collection of material
    gear and sound advise for the South Sound

    I am pondering tying a Japanese Tenkara style emerger

    OK Kelvin. Got you on board the midge ship! Thanks for joining up. I agree, I think the Tides Tavern would be a fun gig. They make a hell of a clam chowder too for $5 for a bowl I think. And the "new expanded" Gig Harbor Fly Shop is a one minute walk away! Let's see if we can get everyone interested.

    Hey DryflyLarry,

    Sounds fun! I tie and fish a lot of midge emergers. I live in Burien, are you meeting the 31st? I think that's a Monday, or would this event be on a weekend? Just wondering before I join you guys. Let me know.---Steve
