Pretty sure that Project Healing Waters is mostly trout.

West Coast is an interesting place to fish if you want 'trout' in the mix. Most of Western Washington, Oregon, and California are 'devoid' of trout streams with any kind of population. The Eastern half of the first two and the Sierra Mountains, a whole new game plan. Think Salmon and Steelhead in the western parts.

Follow CFR pretty closely and much of what they do is the 'teach' (and a damned good job of it I might add!) but to fish you probably have quite a drive to get there. Obvious EXCEPTION would be lake fishing. Most are well stocked by the respective Fish and Game folks.

Larry,

You can count me in as well. In fact, if you don't mind, I'll up the ante and include some flies from my "ready to kick off" tying classes with "my kids." The class of 2013-2014 has a few returning students who are solid tiers, and I'll supplement the collections with some of my own.

When the flies arrive sometime early in 2014, please remember that the flies from "my kids" may not be tying perfection. But, they will have been wrapped with as much devotion to the cause by a very special group of youngsters...

Jerry, aka hairwing530

Larry,

Count me in!! As soon as I send out the flies for the winter swap(wednesday) I will whip up a dozen for CFR and send them to you. Since our friend Fred can't tie right now, I will tie up a dozen for his contribution as well. Thanks for posting for a great cause!

Glad to see the list of tyer's is growing for you Larry. So far I have 6 dozen ready and I am waiting mail order material to continue tying one of the flies I think the folks can really use.

To keep the thread interesting ..here's a pic of "waiting for the head cement to dry".....

Nice work everyone , I'll be interested to see the grand total we can donate. I posted this in my other thread on my "winter project" but my winter project is a box full,to donate

2 doz hot wire RS2 were completed yesterday.

For those of you in Colorado fishing tail waters, these in a size 20 are killer for me.

Will be filling up both sides
