Our next meeting is May 18th, once again at Glen’s office at 1505 Clinton Business Park Dr.  scott t croppedOur last meeting was a success as a tongue-in-cheek copy of the Bob Ross Painting Party adapted for fly tying and using Barry Ord Clarke, the the Feather Bender, as our version of Bob Ross.   Scott Toller, (left) was our demonstration tyer and the Adams was our chosen fly.  Hey, it worked so let’s do it again.  Scott will choose a Feather Bender episode and then will demo tying the fly for us.  As an extra, while everyone ties, we will go over understanding the different line designs without the marketing hype.  Also, the water is there, cast or if you need help with casting we can do that too. Let’s start at 6:00 again to take advantage of the light.  Breambugs is donating a selection of flies for raffle/silent auction, Orvis is donating a collection of line nippers, there will be some material and flies as well.  We’ll have a couple of pizzas for growling stomachs.
