Fly Tying Group?


Recommended Posts

      Is there a group of fly tyers that gets together for fly tying sessions in the Fairmont area? Years ago (early 1990's)  I was part of a group that met once a month to talk fly fishing, fly tying and pass along tips and advice.

The only tying groups I know are here in the Twin Cities, and there are quite a few that gather during the winter months.  I'm not sure of any in the SW near you.

Was part of one.... Your only obstacle will be securing a location. See what kind of interest is out there, treat it seriously or you won't retain anyone. Sporting goods stores are best for location if they have a meeting room; you can help them draw customers, at the same time generating new club members. You will at the very least, introduce others to your art. 

Not only is it a way to learn and share ideas, it ends up being the start of some great friendships with those that share the same passions.

      Thanks for the info. I was in a group back in Indiana over 35 years ago. Fortunatly we met at our local conservation club and a lot of the guys were old. Of course, when you're in your early 20's, everybody is old. I learned a lot from those guys. I just may have to do a little research to see if there is any local interest.

      Thanks again.

      The chair was part of the structural integrity, all one unit put together.

      Can't he just get a new folding camping chair to put in it?  How hard would that be?  The little holes are nothing to throw a patch on.  Dang the icedog is in Marion, IA. I'll take it and see if I can fix it up, if he can't use it! 👍

      Sorry to get your hopes up icedog, especially because I was just gonna give it to ya for free, but it is kaput. Just a couple minor mice holes, and it looked pretty good overall, took a pic pointing out the holes......and then I sat in it and moved around a bit. All of the plastic pressure point/parts attached to the chair pretty much disintegrated to the touch. Time and plastic......not a good mixture. I doubt you will find one that is still holding up. But thanks for helping me declutter the shed.

      Wife just showed me a facebook post by highbanks today. Urgent message at that. Seems another resort is trying to tie in to highbanks road system.

      Looks like the shanty town that sprung up around my house in central MN.  Just moved it off to a new, less populated spot and now have someone drilling by me.
