Hello everyone. I hope you have all had a great summer. With fall approaching it is time to start planning our meetings again. I am looking forward to them. I would like to tell all of you that I am excited to be president and I will do my best to keep our club great. I would like to say thank you to Rocky for the great job he did and I don’t think we would be the club we are without his efforts as president over the last many years. At least thirteen because I have been a member that long and he was president when I joined. I would also like to say thank you to Hunter and Linda for their generosity and commitment to host Paul Little while he is here. Anyway Paul will be here the last weekend in October to tie. He is a great tier and encourage everyone to come and watch and learn. The location will be at the Fall City fire hall on Saturday and the Issaquah library on Sunday. Meet for breakfast at 8:00am both days at the Roadhouse Restaurant in Fall city on Saturday and the Egg and Us in Issaquah on Sunday I will also make dinner reservations at the Steelhead Diner in Seattle for Saturday and the Monsoon Grill in Bellevue for Sunday. Please email me if you are interested in either or both evenings so I can make reservations by the 7th of October. I know Downtown Seattle can be difficult But there is free parking available very close to the Steelhead Diner and very easy that I will explain for those that are interested in going.
Our next meeting will be the weekend of the 18th and 19th of May… with special guest…Jeff Dickey. He is a great teacher !!! Please make the time to make this event…you won’t regret it.
Anyhow, I have not made reservations yet for dinner on Saturday. If you are interested in going to dinner with Jefff …please email me by the Friday night…Most likely someplace like Monsoon on the eastside…Seattle is too darn tough to negotiate at this time.

Tyers, we will be tying Harry Lemire’s Lady Carolyn’s Black Dog. When everthing settled I was not able to find it in Harry’s collection but I did have a photo that Harry sent me in the past.
So if the materials are not exact….please “don’t bust my chops”
Also I will include details of the BLACKER #1 ,at the tail end of this email, that we will be tying April. It is a complex fly and requires time to procure materials so I wanted to give you a heads up.
