Hi Everybody!
It was almost a record tonight. Don Andersen was our guest fly tyer tonight and he filled the library with 28 students. Don taught the Central Alberta Fly Tyers 4 patterns. As usual, all four patterns will be worthy additions to all our fly boxes. Many of us just enjoy listening to the anecdotes that Don shares with us. Don, you are a colorful character and we appreciate the effort you made to drive in from Rocky Mountain House. Don almost convinced me that left handed fly tyers have the advantage. Good try Don! 

Do take some time to look at Don's web site:

Next week Jock MacKenzie and Roy Saunders are our guest tyers. See you then!
