First meeting Dec 12

Hello all you Happy Fly Chuckers. Hope this finds you all in good health.
We are having our first official meeting at the new Como Dockside (old Black Bear Crossing) this Saturday Dec 12th. Then we will meet after the first of the year starting Jan 2 and running thru April 9th (I believe). ******* Como Dockside opens at 7. Our official start times will be 7:30 for Breakfast and Downstairs at 9 (but when have we ever been official so come and go whenever you can ****)
Thanks to all that should up a few weeks ago for our food tasting at the New Como Dockside. I was so excited to see so many of you there . Here are some pictures of the wonderful food they have.

Hope you all can make it on Dec 12th. This will be a planning meeting along with fly tying. I don't have a particular tie along fly for this meeting, so come talk, tie, and spread the joy!
