Any interest in a Zoom type of meeting once a week to discuss Fly Tying, Tactics, and general nonsense etc. Was thinking of a once a week similar to our fly tying meetings, and run an hour long meeting over Zoom or another online meeting platform.
We will have to find a way to structure it so bot everyone is chatting at once, and can rotate a meeting leader/organizer.
Would like to know who is interested and ideas on how to set up and run.

I think thats a great idea Jamie! I did the online schooling with Emma this year and it worked well so I think it will be good as long as everyone understands the procedure. Would be great to see you all and what you've all been up to.
Well I think this is a great idea and I would definitely be down for this and if I am not working night shift I will definitely attend. Why don't we set this up and set a time and day and then those who join join. Would be cool to atleast try it out and see where it goes, may take a few weeks to catch on. It doesn't look like things are going to return to normal anytime soon
I attended one of your meetings at Cabelas before the lockdown. I don't know if I applied for or received membership in your club, or if I need one? I would like to recommend zoom meetings. Among other things, people like me could learn more about your group, and see if we wanted to become involved.
I am mostly interested in finding people to float with. I have a pontoon boat, but I mostly fish lakes cuz it takes two vehicles to float a river. I have attended zoom meetings for Island Waters Fly Fishers. I am a member and they are nice guys but they don't do much whitewater. I also was part of a couple zoom meetings for Victoria Golden Rods, where they showed some of my video as part of the meetings. (cohos & cutts from Kennedy Lake, and browns from the Cowichan) It is a way of keeping in touch, and better than sitting at home alone.
I assume that your weekly meetings at Cabelas are cancelled - correct? Zoom seems to be about the last refuge for people who want to connect. If you have open zoom meetings I would be interested in attending. If not, I will just drop a line asking if anyone is interested in floating Van Isle rivers with me, and leaving one vehicle at the launch and another at the takeout.

Well that was a blast, I think we all had a great laugh yesterday! Paul takes the win for bringing us all to tears but Flyrod came in with a close 2nd, he would have taken first if he attended🤣😂 See you all next week
Looking forward to another awesome group chat tonight. Gonna knock out a few steelhead flies and knock back a few whiskeys.
We have currentlu been using FB messenger with good success but can only have 8 people on at once. So far the most we have had is 6 on at one time, so let me know if you want in and I will add you to the chat.
