    Hi Kelvin-

    I'll join. If the OP is prime, I might be a fly contributor instead of a socializer but I'll definitely participate in the swap and do my best to get to the gathering. It'll be good to meet y'all in person.

    Thomas

    For those of us who have to drive a distance and take a ferry day time is much better.

    Sounds good. I'd love to meet some of you face to face. I also vote for Seattle, but if it is Fri or Sat. another place with good water for the season would be great.

    Ditto dfl's post. For those of us who have to drive a distance and take a ferry day time is much better.

    No idea what I'm tying. Do people want trout flies, SRC flies, steelhead flies, other contraptions. Doesn't matter to me.

    I'm a trout only guy but can always flip them to a friend if I get steelhead flies.

    I'm down to try a fly swap, never done one before but it sounds fun, is there a theme at all, or just my personal favorites?

    look forward to meeting you all.

    I've got 3/5 complete. I tie a bunch for fishing...use them, and if they end up working, I tie a couple pretty ones.

    So far you guys have 2 beach flies, and one steelhead pattern. You will probably be getting more of the latter.
