RE:Priming the pump...
Did I read that right? Grego taking the tying plunge?
Awesome! Another in the class of 2000. This year is gonna be remembered as the year of the new tyers. Get a vise yet? I got a good place to buy a starter vise for < 20 bucks, and the hooks never slip. Good luck. Let's see them scans.
I could try and make that trip to Rhody too. I'll let you know.
