I have got everything worked out for us to use the Hatchery on Sun. Jan. 9th,2000 from 2:00 pm till when ever as long as we are out by 9:00 pm.Bill said we will have to supply tables and chairs so please let me know asap if you plan to be there so I can get them from the school.
12-05-99, 10:43 PM
This sounds great but I hope we are not over-burdening you. I had planned to throw a table in the truck and some chairs. If a few folks did this, your workload would be smaller.
Anyway thanks for lining this up! Let me know what to bring.
12-05-99, 11:35 PM
That would really help if a few people could bring tables.Dont worry about the chairs I can get those easy.I think five tables will be plenty but what ever we dont have I will get
12-06-99, 12:40 AM
I can bring a table if I need to..um..what about electricity for lights? I gotta have light! Do I need an extention cord? and directions please!
12-09-99, 12:25 AM
I assume this date is not good for everybody
12-09-99, 08:27 AM
January 9th sounds good to me.
Good to me too.
12-09-99, 11:36 AM
Me too, me too!
Birdog? Come on, I need some teaching!
12-09-99, 06:37 PM
Some one send me a map or directions. I'm not from Atlanta.Looking foward to it. Thanks Garrick
For Garrick, Lady Jane and anybody else.
Take I-85 from the north or the south until it forks off into I-985 near Buford. On 985, exit onto Hwy 20 west (I believe this is the first exit). Go approximately 6 and 1/2 miles west until you cross the Chattahoochee River.
The next part is interesting. Just up the hill past the river you take the first right. This turns you into a very nice subdivision that has an unmanned guardhouse at the front. I believe the subdivision is named Chattahoochee River Club. Go to the second intersection and there will be a sign with several arrows to places like "Dream House Lane" and "Equestrian Trails". Among them will be an arrow with "Trout Hatchery" pointing to the right. Follow this road until it ends at the hatchery. It's not a big place so you should be able to find everybody.
Somebody correct me if I forgot anything.

That Jan 9, "2000" still sounds strange to me. But it is a good date (I hope), and I can bring a table.
12-09-99, 09:56 PM
It's a date. Will bring 7' table and 6 chairs.

12-13-99, 02:05 PM
Well, are we going to do any programs? You know like Drifter was talking about. Everyone tie 3 flies for a drawing or something like that...
Anything we need to do to get ready for this thing? Is there a list of things needed (like coolers, heaters, etc.)?
Just wanting to help
12-13-99, 11:39 PM
William types: "Well, are we going to do any programs? "
If anyone is interested, I'll get the needed supplies necessary for attendees to construct the Lil Drifter Flyfishing Lanyard (a $29.95 value for about three bucks.) We can take about ten minutes to construct them.
E-mail me if you're interested so I can get all the stuff together.

12-14-99, 08:53 AM
I'll bring extra vises and tools for anyone wanting to try fly tying out to see just how much fun it is. And food...if you don't tell me what to bring....well, lol, it might be chitlins that SC is so famous for..
12-14-99, 09:35 AM
PLeeeease, leave the chitlins at the house. The smell makes me gag. You and Hoochrat can have some outside, maybe ?? http://www.georgia-outdoors.com/ubbngto/smile.gif
Anywho, I'll be tying three N.O.S.( streamer) for the swap.
smick a Bubba !
12-28-99, 08:22 AM
Hey 123Chris. I met your friend Ellis on the Hi trip. He was fun to talk to. Hope he can make it to the fling.
12-28-99, 11:14 AM
Will bring some Opossum pie! (NiteOwls favorite). Anyone see a good road kill let me know ASAP.
Drifter, count me in on the lanyard.
Is it bring 3 or 5 flies for the swap of sorts?
Safe and Happy New Year To All!!
Joe Carnahan aka. HoochRat :)
12-28-99, 01:01 PM
I will try to be there, depends if I can get off from work!!!! Will bring my friend Ellis, some of you met him on the Hiawasse(I cant spell that).
12-28-99, 01:27 PM
So just what is a Lil Drifter Lanyard, and what does it do???
Enquiring minds want to know.....
12-28-99, 01:27 PM
I would love to learn more about knots. So whoever wanted to do that I'll definately TRY to learn.
I'll bring food and extra vises and basic tools. Let me know whatever else you need.
Lets see...Hooch...I've got about a 120 mile drive I ought to be able to collect plenty of road kill along the way.
12-28-99, 08:09 PM
heard a rumor that a "birddog" may be at the fling.

12-28-99, 10:23 PM
Bet he'll be on a short leash.

preston91 winces his brow, scratches his head, and types: "So just what is a Lil Drifter Lanyard, and what does it do???"
Lil Drifter Lanyard: A piece of heavy string which is threaded with wooden beads and four snap swivels, used for the hanging of tools (forceps, nippers, Gink, knot tool, thermometer, etc) so as to make them readily available for use. The string is fitted to be worn around the neck. A piece of rubber tubing is added to the lanyard to cushion the string against the neck. It keeps tools totally convenient for use. My 13 year old (Kevin a.k.a. Lil Drifter) saw a flyfishing lanyard in a fly shop for $24.95 and commented that he could make us one. A trip to Michael's, and we had everything we needed to assemble the lanyards. The material for one lanyard is no more than $3 tops! It is really convenient. The Lil Drifter Lanyard was born! A must for the fashionable flyfisher http://www.georgia-outdoors.com/ubbngto/wink.gif
I'm gonna put the materials to make the lanyard in sandwich bags. We can take about ten minutes at the Fling to put them together. So far I have the following folks down for a Lil Drifter Lanyard:
friend of Garrick
If anyone else is interested, e-mail me or post your order on this thread.
Put me down for one.
Drifter,Put me down for lanyard!
12-29-99, 11:32 PM
Four more Lanyard Doodes have been added to the list:
12-30-99, 12:24 PM
Hey this lanyard thing sounds good to use in a float tube! Include me please.
12-30-99, 10:28 PM
12-31-99, 08:57 AM
Got to be fashionable! I'll take one.
01-02-00, 10:45 PM
Ok we have about 21 people coming to the fling.Who all is bringing table, chairs and extenion cord for tying lights please post
The Ole Man
01-02-00, 11:23 PM
One card table, 4 chairs, couple of cords. Do we need some long cords-25' ect?
I too have card table (not suitable for clamping) & 4 chairs, I also have a few ext. cords I can bring.
Does anyone have one of those "Church" tables about 6' long w/ folding legs? They make for easy clamping for vise!
01-02-00, 11:38 PM
One small table big enough two tiers, 6 folding chairs, one long extension cord, one six outlet power strip.
01-03-00, 12:08 AM
I will bring 2 6'tables myself.looks like this is really going to workout.
01-03-00, 09:01 AM
I can bring extention cords and I have two lights if I need to bring those.
01-03-00, 12:19 PM
Kinda on / off topic, but are any of you fly tiers interested in wood duck feathers? I hunt in a swamp full of the suckers, most of the feathers get sent out to Montana, but I'd like to see if anyone around here would like them. Let me know. If there's a big enough demand I'll try to get to the fling with them -- trade feathers for flys (may not be able to make it though)
01-03-00, 12:24 PM
Absolutely! I'll trade flies for feathers! What kind of flies do you want? I hope you make it.
01-03-00, 12:45 PM
Ones that catch fish!!! http://www.georgia-outdoors.com/ubbngto/wink.gif
I usually fish with bead headed anythings 14-16. I need to talk to my source (the feathers are at my brother in laws in Newnan -- I'm in Atlanta) to make sure I can get them by this weekend. Don't make anything for me. If I can't make it to the fling I'll try to send you a bag.

I'll be there with some chairs, an extension cord and some kind of snack. Drifter, put me down for on of them fancy fishin' necklaces too.
I hope to be there but can only bring a power strip as that is all I have. Maybe some chips or something. I should be there and look forward to meeting you all. WHat time does it start??
01-04-00, 06:02 AM
Being the fashionable type,I better have one of those lanyards!
After just taking down the Christmas lights, I should have plenty of extesion cords to share. I may be able to borrow a couple of those 6' tables from work. If I get tables I might as well borrow a couple of chairs.
It starts at 2:00PM.
Although I will be watching intently at the fling, does anybody coming to the fling have an old flytying video or book (preferably video) they could lend to me for a while? I will ship it back.
Seeking knowledge on the subject,
If I can remember I bring mine "Fly tying made clear and simple." you can use it for awhile!

I've got a couple I can loan you.
Hey, some body start a new thread. I'm tired of backing in and out of two pages here. http://www.georgia-outdoors.com/ubbngto/smile.gif
01-05-00, 10:20 PM
I would like to go if I can get a ride. I'll talk to dad about going. Were fishing on Sat, so Sun should be ok I guess.
BTW: Who was it that said they could pick me up that time? I can't remember?
What all are ya going to be doing?
rarin ta go
01-06-00, 09:28 AM
EG...watching intently? why? I'm bringing extra vises and tools and you are welcome to plunder through my fly tying bag for materials. I hope you'll try it!
I'll take you up on your offer on the tools. I bought a vice this week from the fellows at Unicoi outfitters (they got it to me in a day). "Watching intently" was just my way of being polite. I fully intended to mooch materials off of people at the fling http://www.georgia-outdoors.com/ubbngto/smile.gif. I haven't quite figured out this foreign language of fly tying yet so I am going to wait until after the fling to start buying stuff.
