You do realize you guys are going to cost me more $$$ in materials.

At least the packages are easy to sneak into the house..:devil:

I may just show up for that one. What all do we need to bring?? I need some help with my wings, mostly the mallard flank. Hmmmmm, this may be a doable one for me. So, do we bring a fly box, or????

Bring what you have.
Vise, tools, etc.
Bring materials you want to tie with.

We also will provide materials and assistance.

We also have materials to purchase if you need to stock up.

You will be able to wing very well after one evening with this group.

I should be there. May have to buy hooks though. My buddy was looking at my discount books, and don't have my # for buying wholesale from Alec. But, will break down and buy retail lol.

But, my question is, I need directions on how to get to your place. I'm coming from Tacoma, and never fish up that way, so have no idea exactly where you're located. So if you could email me directions that would be great. And what time do you think I should leave Tacoma? I'm near Federal Way actually. Now, if you were having this in Forks, I'd know when/where to go. LOL.

Give yourself an hour and fifteen minutes to be safe. I live in Auburn and it takes 45-60 minutes if I don't stop for dinner.

Take SR18 east to North Bend;
At I-90 interchange continue straight ahead and it will turn into Snoqualmie Parkway;
Follow Snoq. Parkway until it connects with Fall City - Snoqualmie Rd (also known as SR 202) at lighted intersection;
Turn left at the intersection onto SR 202;
Follow SR 202 past Snoqualmie Falls resort and down the hill into Fall City;
Turn right onto Fall City-Carnation Rd (also known as SR203);
Follow SR203 into Carnation and Aaron's shop will be on your right after the Tolt River Bridge and school.

Specific address is: 3946 TOLT AVE

See you there.
