Yes, I was planning on attending. No News Letter means no material lists for patterns, so I guess I will be completely unprepaired, Again!

BTW: UFT Link:

Is the new UFT website going to replace the newsletter? Is the website going to add features.... like maybe an on-line Roundtable Magazine?
Your thoughts are appreciated!

Rich --

the website will not replace the newsletter...the current plan is to perhaps put up some of the old issues (perhaps from the previous season) at some point...

if you have suggestions for features for the website, please contact the webmaster.

Jared,

Thanks man! What the %^*# is "mallard flank" (you can tell I'm a fly tying new-be & honest about it!)

As far as the UFT Web-site goes, posting the material lists may be a good idea?

Al --

you "the man" -- give yourself a ceegar...

Grego --

don't worry, I'm sure there'll be enough to go around...besides,
somebody may be tying something of more interest to you anyway!

the recipes on the website is an interesting idea...shall pass it along.

thanks!

jared

Jared, yes pass along the material list idea.

OK wise guy Al, I guessed the mallard duck part, but I was confused by the "flank" part.
Is the flank of a bird the wing (I guess no), or the feathers from the side of the body, like a flake steak (I guess yes), or something else completely?

RE:speaker at the december UFT meeting

Sorry, didn't mean to be a wise guy, Greg. Flank feathers are from the side as the name implies. (I'm not sure if wing feathers are used in tying?) Flank feathers are in counter distinction to breast or neck feathers and are prized for their water resistence in dry fly and classic salmon patterns.

I found this gem:<!--http--><a href="http://www.flyanglersonline.com/flytying/tyingterms/" target="_blank"> fly tying terms</a><!--url-->

Under F for flank we find,
<blockquote><hr>
"<b>Flank Feather:</b> Feathers found on the sides, either over, under or behind the base of the wings of birds"
<hr></blockquote>
