    I’m wondering if I might be able to attend your meeting on Nov. 21st, to get a feel for your group. I’ve been tying steelhead flies for almost 30 years now, starting with John Farrar’s and Bob Aide’s marabou flies and Randall Kaufman’s Deschutes flies, and more recently based on old Spey and Atlantic salmon hairwing patterns and variants of my own, though I admit that I have tied a few Intruder-style flies, too. Years back, I took an Spey fly tying class from Glenn Wilson at the old Morning Hatch in Tacoma, and a few years ago took a different Spey class from John Olschewsky at Puget Sound Fly Shop in Tacoma. So I’d like to attend one of your meetings to see full-dressed Atlantic salmon fly tying, and see if it’s for me.
