November 2023 Meeting

Hello everyone!
Just wanted to get this out to all of you so you can practice before the meeting! Our November meeting will be held on Saturday November 18th, at the Fall City  Firehouse at 9am.
Those wanting breakfast will meet at the Raging River Cafe at 8am.
Our yearly Dues are due ($40) and to facilitate things you may pay using PayPal  through Megan. Her email is:  
You may also pay for shirts with her as well, hopefully this will speed things up for members so we can get our 2024 Roster available to everyone.
Shirts are ready to be picked up for those who have not done so. Any other embroidery items you may want done can be given to me and I will take care of it with our business, see me with any questions.
Last call for Shellac, anyone wanting a bottle please let me know before the meeting, I will have them for you. No charge.
Our December Meeting with Piero is all set up and ready to go. Linda has worked very hard to bring this quality tier to the Guild. I need to have anyone who plans on going to the pre get together on Friday evening at The Bachand’s home to PLEASE contact Linda to confirm that you will attend. Linda has also set up reservations for dinner after the Saturday session with Piero, and also needs to have a final headcount. Please let Linda know on this too.
Piero and Byron will have “Fly Kits’ available to members for a nominal fee, so you can try some in hand tying. Kits are $20.00 If you are interested let Linda know this as well. She has worked tirelessly on behalf of the Guild to bring you a great weekend, thank you Linda!!
If you need a new name tag please let Nick Riggs or myself know, Nick has been working on our new look!
Ok, on to this months Fly, Moray Doone.
I have stripped, cleaned and dyed the Quills required to tie this pattern, (will have them for you) thanks to Steve for providing all the quills for this, much appreciated Steve!
It also calls for pink floss, I will have that as well. You will need a small yellowish fuzzy hackle (wolly bugger marabou) or as it calls for Hen Pheasant thigh hackle, dyed yellow. I also think a yellow saddle hackle could work, just keep the fuzzy fibers at the butt intact. A Widgeon hackle for a throat, Jungle cock, and a slim wing. I will also show how to accomplish a Herl head too!! 
Call or text me if you have questions, should be fun!
Lunch will be provided, coffee will be on, and beverage’s will be in the cooler!
Keep- those bobbin’s turning!
