tying night
I have been talking with a few friends about doing a tying night here and there through the winter and was curious if any of the locals on here wanted to do a tying night once a month or so. Let me know if any of you have interest. I have a great location that will fit a large number of tyers in Sparks.

Ok I have a tying night planned for Dec 2nd at 6:00 with a few guys from the local TU chapters. It will be at my work in Sparks. Everyone is welcome. Message me for RSVP and address. Hope to see some of you there.

Re: tying night
Chris, sorry I couldn't make it, how did it turn out.
Is this thing a one time only?

Re: tying night
It went well Jim, I had 6 people show and quite a few others had other engagements they needed to be at. It was fun none the less. I will be doing more for sure and will keep you guys posted as I know Dave(webrx) wanted to come too but couldn't. Stefan might try and do one up in Truckee at the TU office too but I'm sure I'll get one going again down here before that happens LOL!

not to intrude on your tying night, but just a heads up that Ken at Cabelas is offering a fly tying class for pyramid flies on the first wednesday of the month at the Reno store.

Re: tying night
Hey guys I just wanted to let all you Tahoe locals know that I am doing another tying night next Friday the 10th if any of you can make it. Same place same time and a few of us will be fishing the next day. Any questions give me a holler.

Re: tying night
Good for you troutdoorsman. A bunch of us from our FF club did a tying night every other Tues. night for years. It kept getting more and more fun, and everyone kept getting better and better. Best to you guys.

Re: tying night
Thanks Jimmy! The last one we did went well so I think this will turn into a monthly thing.

Re: tying night
great Idea...wish I lived in NV. I would love to hear how it goes so I can start one in Ut. As a Utah fly fishing guide, I'm always looking for ways to get to know future guides. :)
