    Fisher,
    I was over there last weekend. This weekend won't work for me, unfortunately. You should come on out to Al's with us next week.

    Chris, did you mean tying flies or tying one on (beer)? Either one or both sound good though.

    I was thinking about both. I'm running really low on flies. Do you think that would work at Al's? Seemed pretty dead last night but maybe that was b/c of rain.

    I have a feeling it would work. The place was busier from 5:30-6:30 then it seemed to die down. I'm thinking maybe there is just an after work crowd that stops in for a drink or two and then jets. We'd have to figure something out for not making to big of a mess, maybe just bringing along a separate bag for trash. I can try to get there earlier, too, and try to get a good size table like we were at last night.

    Sounds good. I can't wait to get weird looks, etc. Ha. I just pack everything in my messenger bag and then dump the trash back into it.

    I have now met stealheaders.Though these were all young men at one point I thought I was listening WWII prisoners of war describing their treatment at the hands of the cruel and despicable Germans(no offense Mr Valdschmidt).I soon realized however that this was voluntary behavior and that no dose of any medication could save these poor individuals from them selves so I had another beer.See you guys at Al's

    The Rancho Bravo on Capitol Hill is open and stays open late! I ate there this weekend after going out one night. Gonna grab a burrito tonight and eat it in Cal Anderson. Life does not get better!

    I'm definitely going to stop by the one on 45th before Al's on Thursday. Anyone up for swinging some flies this late afternoon/early evening on the Sauk? Let me know, I'm going up either way, I can drive from Shoreline.

    Thanks for wishing me well, but all I got were vacancies in my fly box from losing some flies. Looks like I'll be tying spey flies at Al's!

    Anyone have some afternoons/evenings available this week, (besides thursday for Al's) I'm bound and determined to get some winter chrome before everything is closed.
