    Steve-

    Good question. For some reason I thought the 31st was on a Friday..... so.....We could up the date to 29th Saturday around 11 AM or.... move it up to the following Saturday the 5th. I'm thinking the 5th, so people feel they have some time. I'm retired so, I forgot what the working world is like..... Any suggestions welcomed!

    Face to Face Swap if others are inclined: February 5th---11 AM Gig Harbor- The Tides Tavern ----- Otherwise, flies are DUE on January 31 in person or mailed to me and received hopefully by then so I may pass them on to those that meet "face to face". After the meet, we can invade the new expanded Gig Harbor Fly Shop one block away!!! If you put in the mail, $2 is required for mailing back flies. Thanks Pals! I am open to other dates if need be. Thought I would post this date early enough so you can plan ahead. Oh, one last thing. Sneezing at this Face to Face Swap is not allowed, otherwise this midges will disappear in a flash!

    Sorry, but I've got to drop outbawling:. I just learned my work schedule is going to be crazy in January. I'll look for a swap later this winter or maybe just setup another myself. Have fun with this one; hopefully a few pics can be posted after the fly exchanging.:thumb:

    Larry,
    I'm glad you changed the date. Now I can make the gathering. The 29th I'm out of town, of course don't go setting a date just for my schedule.
    I hope most others can make the meet as well. It was a great time at the Dec. meet at AATF, it sure helps to bring more "community" to our online community. Thanks for being Swapmiester and organizing a mtg place and time!

    Steeli- Sorry you have to drop out. If you change your mind let us know! You will miss a good time at the Tides Tavern and their clam chowder, and the new improved Gig Harbor Fly Shop. See you again in another swap sometime.

    Scott- Glad you can make it! That's great! I think it could prove to be a good time. We'll drag you over to the Gig Harbor Fly Shop as well.

    OK, where are the guys that like to catch trout? Apparently there are too many blind people on this site that can't tie anything under size 16???......... Come on all, we need at least 3 more tiers. Don't be afraid. Sign up and have fun!

    Okay Larry go ahead and put me on the list and lets see what I can do. I'm slow and awkward but since these are small I may be able to get them done. I have tied 18's before but nothing smaller. and I'll have to see if I've got 18s available, might be two different hooks But that's okay. I met you last year at the casting thing we did in Lion park in Bremerton I'm still just as retarded and trying to stumble on. but not too bad. Are you going to be at Jasons the 15th for his Radish bash? if so I'll see you there. Other wise in Gig Harbor. Happy fishin !!

    Larry, put me into slot six, eleven or twelve. I have a couple of patterns that I'm thinking about.

    Thanks Larry. I will be tying a CDC emerger pattern, pretty simple, but it has worked for me.

    We now have triploidjunkie signed up! That makes for 11 tiers, so we have room for one more! Triploidjunkie can't make it to the face to face meet, but it is not required by anyone. So, if you can't make it, please send in your flies by the 31st so I can get them to others.

    Ed (Mumbles), thanks. Looking forward to your CDC pattern!

    Larry, count me in on the face to face. I'll tie a...................emerger of some kind. Wish me luck, and
    get Kokita to join in as well. He'd be a good addition.
