Is Don doing a tying session too, or just a presentation?

Eunan: My winter tying projects are pretty basic compared to the stuff you tie. On my to-do-list are Ants, Deer-hair beetles, Matt Grobert's Cloud Emerger, Tom Rosenbauer's Rabbits Foot Emerger, JC's Electric Caddis Pupa, Tricos, the 20" stonefly and a few streamers to replace the ones that were lost over this past season.

My only winter projects are tying into some fish after spending most of the fall season in the basement! I already managed to top off my winter box and my steelhead box so I have another couple few weeks and I should have my cane fishing.

I assume that he'll be there all day.
The club has an expo during the day and the banquet is the same night.
Usually the "featured guest" does a couple of different seminars at the expo as well as a slide presentation at the banquet
It's not until February

try to improve of spinning some deer hair. My bass bugs need some help. Just got a new vise so this should help. I use to tie my bass bugs and other flies on a not so good vise. Sure is nice to have a rotary vise for a change.

I guess this kind of fits into Winter tying projects but I am also hoping to work on improving my intruders. My local shop is having an evening of fly tying with April Vokey, so I'm hoping to learn lots about intruders during the event. She ties some amazing looking flies.

Yeah I wouldn't mind spending some time with April Vokey! She was out here last year and it was a mob scene at Chagrin River Outfitters!
