If the date (and weather) work out, I'm game. Beer and fly-tying seem to go together.

I got back late Sunday and am just catching up on everything. I'm flexible on LTS, so up to you out-of-towners. Does this weekend work?

This weekend doesn’t work for me but don’t let that stop a gathering.
Simply put, people fish because it's fun

Saturday wouldn't work for me, but I'd bet I could talk the other half into Sunday working.

JRS putting forward the skinny nelson inspired me to actually restock some nymphs. This is close to that pattern and serves approx same purpose in the field.

I know I'm holding up the swap fly distribution, having not sent my flies (in hopes of a face to face meeting instead). My flies have been done for a while, and if the group prefers I could just mail them to Randy.

Or... maybe LTS sometime this coming weekend?

I won't be able to make that.. I'd say just mail 'em and hope for a meet up sometime soon.

I just got a new puppy and that's taking up quite a bit of my time right now. It turns out puppies are a lot of work!
