Well today was Garage Sale Monday. Evan filled his car with a load of fly tying material from the late Harvey MacIntyre. His family generously donated the material and all the proceeds this time will be donated to Stream Watch. Apparently there is still another car load for next year's garage sale. I hope everybody got the "stuff" in the door without being caught (grin).
After the garage sale, 19 keen tyers got to work on three patterns. All three patterns are excellent cutthroat trout patterns. Evan Ritchie said the Royal Trude was his "go to" fly on the Elk River for many a trip!
...next week Byron Stearns is our guest tyer.
By the way, we still have two Mondays with no presenter. Any
