    I just found out that I will have other obligations on that day. I am really bummed as I would have loved to meet you all and see all of the flies that were tied up. I already have my set of flies tied so I will drop them off at the Avid Angler this week. They will all be toe tagged so I hope that they get swapped and someone enjoys them.

    Sounds like a good time! I was planning to swing by AA anyway, and just saw this thread. I'll definitely join in for socializing. Would love to meet some new folks.

    If we get a #13 and need a #14, or if someone drops out, I can try to fill in, though I haven't really had a chance to prove my patterns in the salt and on the swing and all I really have are some trout patterns.

    Ira, I work in Everett, so I can try to get your flies and swap them for you. Let me know...

    Anybody up for a bit of fishing beforehand? Maybe a few quick hours?

    I am tying trout patterns (they are probably the one type of fish we all fish for). Because they tend to be quicker and less material intense than some of the other styles I am just tying up some extras to make the exchange more even.

    My two main sets are done, just tying up a few bonus flys. Anyone planning on doing demos? I could demo a simple nymph that is one of my bonus flies.

    I'm more than up for demoing as I imagine others will set up as well. I went so far as to make sure that the Avid Angler carried the specialty materials I use to tie one of my patterns.
