I understand that there is one on the otherside of the pond, like in Silverdale at a fly shop?
I would love to have a little weekly or monthly tie-in somewhere in the Seattle area. Maybe one of the shops would sponsor it, as they could even make a few bucks from us as we get just what we need to tie that special pattern. But please not at one of the snooty shops, somewhere nice and homey, say Swede's, but that place may be a little too small.
Or we could rotate, house to house, or for that fact, my condo has a cabana we could use, provided we brought tying tables. The condo has chairs that could be used, but no tables.
Maybe this could build into a really low key club, not needing sponsorship to join. Where we could discuss freely the merits of Okuma products, without having to be escorted to the door or denyed membership.
In response to Tight Lines there is a fly tying get together so to speak every Saturday morning from 9 to about 11 at the Northwest Angler in downtown Poulsbo. Generally a proficient tyer comes and demonstrates how to tie his / her favorite flies. For those who are opposed to having a gathering in a fly shop because of sales pressure I can assure you that Troy Detman, owner of the shop, has never tried to sell anything to people who come to the fly tying sessions. All are invited. If you're ever in Poulsbo on a Sat. am drop by.
Hello to those who expressed interested in the club.
I recently sent e-mails via the Forum e-mail system to get your e-mail adresses so I can start to solidify some details with you. (i.e. where to meet, what's the best time for everyone, how often, general what we want from the club questions).
We can solidify many of these details during our initial meeting.
Todd, Hope it's not to late to get in on the tying. I've taken some classes and think some exposure to different styles of tying and material use would be helpful to me. It might be a good place to get to know other ffishers as well. I'll Email you.
