Not many Magnolia Fly Fishers are going to be around because of the trout trip that weekend and Meredith is looking for people to tie during the day. A couple have committed, call Meredith if you tie, I guess you would call it demo tying. The new fishing manager might have some casting games or something. Not sure of what all will be available but I’m sure we will have details as the date approaches.
