Articulated Madness is in the two minute drill of the fourth quarter, how are you all doing? I have my flies all done, only need to tag and carry them along. If you are not attending the swap live and need to ship them you need to let me know right away. I will be home to receive mail from US Postal or others until about an hour before the swap goes down.
For your memory refreshing we will be meeting at the "Holding Lane Pub" in what is called downtown Kingston about 1 block to the west of the ferry toll booths. They come highly recommended with ample choices of brews on tap and a nice menu selection. Carpool, walk on the ferry or otherwise plan your travels and intake safely and appropriately.
See you all there at 6pm on Friday, October 2nd, Holding Lane Pub, downtown Kingston, flies in hand and ready for the articulated madness.
Indeed I will. I have to learn how to resize my photos. New camera is giving me fits. I will figure it out though, either reducing the megapixels when I take them or saving them to a source that allows reduction sizing. I type a lot but that is about my limit of technical stuff. Just ask you know who...
It is pretty quiet in here! Either everyone is feverishly tying, fishing, working or...all of the above?
I'll be coming from Oly Friday, and plan to hit a few spots on my way north. Not sure where yet, but I have the day to play. If it's not too much madness I might be at the Skok. But I'm sure it'll be crazy as Thursday it opens up for an adult limit of four coho...
If anyone has any ideas of a good place to hit the water before hand let me know. I was also thinking of PNP or other locals close by.
I'm not going to make it, guys. I don't feel well enough yet and have had a very hard time getting to the fly tying bench. I'm only partially done and can't seem to concentrate through the drugs and have so many nurses coming in and Dr. appointments that my time is limited to getting poked and prodded and taking a nap to recuperate. I'll try another swap when I feel better.
Steve, we'll be missing you for sure but hope that your health returns quickly and fully. That is of paramount importance right now. Wishing you well and looking forward to fishing with you again soon.

Anyone need more info on how to get to the Holding Lane Pub in Kingston, WA? A quick google or mapquest search should suffice, but if you need more info let me know.
See you all tomorrow! Most will be there between 6 and 7.
Anyone else interested in just coming to check out a bunch of crazy WFFers you are welcome to attend as well. See you there also.
