I had a fantastic Thai Curry (kind of orange vs yellow or red) and Ronn tried a thai fish dish that he wouldn't order again.

Forgot to take a picture, but it does save you from drooling on your keyboard.

 

We were joined by queen of the tying room Hilda ... you are only allowed in the tying area after a thorough vetting from Hilda.

Everyone knows what these are ...

To give you a sense of the tying equivalent, here's Ronn's from my attempt to stitch multiple images together

From my perspective

Sorry, I failed to capture a focused Ronn fly from last night, so I'll stick this one in from a previous T&T and intentionally I wanted to capture the incredible tag area.

Here's my own black and orange pattern from last night ... lots of of issues including toppings that are totally wonky ... but I did get a material inspiration to explore in the next few days.

Sounds like a good time.  Ronn has an amazing material collection.  Would like to make it up some time for a visit.  Thanks for sharing.

I'm jealous, on many levels. The camaraderie, the quality flies, the color of the crests on Royce's fly and body work on Ronn's.

Royce, that is a monster fly! Love the shape. Awesome work guys.

Val - "The camaraderie"   I wonder if the old tying meetings are the victim of the internet forum?  The sharing of info via the internet has been incredible, but the downside is we don't get together like we used to?

Yes Royce, it is just a different type of meeting.

A couple and a half years ago I sat in that room in the photos. Ronn and I talked, we didn't tie, and still to this day to say that that session influenced me is an understatement. It was all the little things, the tools here, threads there, knick knacks and stuff sitting around that told a story one could never get from an "online" response.

That in essence was the jist of what I hoped to bring out in the "your desk now" thread. If you can't be sitting in the room with me as We tie at least we might enjoy a little virtual camaraderie.

Val - yep, I can hear it artist to artist ... material, color, texture, I'm sure you both enjoyed it.

I've thought of "resurecting" the Tie In's if there was enough interest. 

 

Val, I REALLY enjoyed your and the family visiting!


Happy Trails!

Bud, you don't have to go to the Thai restaurant. Stay here and tie. We can bring you some Popeye's chicken.  


Happy Trails!
