    Great triploidjunkie! We are looking forward to the "eastside" midge secrets! Thanks.

    Man I wish I had kept one. Went down to the river after work yesterday, and at least a dozen fish between 17-20 inches were rising steadily. That fly would have been the ticket I think.

    Received Rob Ast's and triploidjunkie's flies this weekend in the mail! Men, these are awesome! I think we are going to have a nice selection of midges for this swap! I am getting antsy to try some of these out. I think some Spring fly fishing is going to prove interesting. I hope the weather warms a bit pretty soon. Thanks you guys for the great great ties! Very nice!

    LMAO. Nacho cheese or ranch? I found that fish like the ranch better.

    Checking in here. Reminder: The fly swap due date was/is the 31st for those not attending the Face to Face at the Tides Tavern on Saturday, Feb. 5 at 11 AM. So, those not attending please make sure to get them in the mail to me so I can pass them out at the Tides Tavern (between all the beers that everyone was thinking of buying me). We will then wander over to the Gig Harbor Fly Shop and check out their goods! Or, you are on your own, whatever you prefer. Thanks pals. I'm guessing there will be at least a half dozen of us characters there on Saturday. I haven't taken a poll.

    Hey Kelvin!

    Why don't you bring your Tenkara rod over to the Swap if you are coming to the Face to Face? I didn't get a good look at it the last time I saw you in Monroe. I'm a little more curious now, if you think of it. Maybe others might be interested.

    Chef, I caught my flies from the mail so if you would I would appreciate the ride. I'm liking getting to meet many of the guys from the forum hoping to run into them fishing or going fishing togeather. I've liked the guys at the Gig Harbor Fly Shop from when they were just on line. I'm glad they are hanging in and doing well since I don't have to climb their old stairs now. I'll PM my address and anything else you need okay. thanks very much.
