Great November meeting. Always fun to sit around afterwards and talk about tying and whatever else comes up. Our next meeting will be December 17th at the Fall City fire hall at 9:00am. Breakfast at 8:00am at the Raging River cafe in Fall City as well. The pattern will be the Queen of Autumn by Kelson. Also Glenn Wilson has agreed to demonstrate for us at our January meeting. This could be a Saturday and Sunday event if there is enough interest. I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving. See you in a few weeks.
November 2022 Meeting
Our next meeting will be November 19th at the Fall City fire hall at 9:00am. Breakfast at 8:00am at the Raging River cafe in Fall City as well. The fly will be the Brora as tied by Megan Boyd. Her style of tying flies has had a huge impression on me and many others for sure for good reason. I think she is one of the most celebrated tiers of all time and well deserved. Moving on, club dues is due and I want to get a current roster so please send it to Megan Brocco thru PayPal or send a check to Steve Brocco at the addresses below. Thank you both for your help with this! Please email me once you have sent your payment so I can work to get an accurate roster of active members by December 1st. This is a lot of work for a person with a full time job and and family stuff so please only email me once you commit. Also in work is the chance of getting a guest tier for after the new year. See you in a few weeks.
