Well after a lot of searching and talking with others, we have decided to try to have Fly Tying Mondays right at TC Outfitters. There is plenty of parking and the back space will not cost us anything.
There is a catch. We need to gather tables and folding chairs. We are going to ask for donations to get this done. We want to use 4 foot folding tables (cost is about $40 to $60). We are on a bit of a search to find tables where it is easy to attach a fly tying vice clamp. Most folding chairs cost between $10.00 and $17.00.
We hope to gather 35 chairs and 8 tables.
If you are willing to donate a table or 4 chairs or money to purchase any of the above, please get in contact with me by replying to this e-mail. Once we have gathered the tables and chairs we are in business.
The space at TC Outfitters will be tight at times but we are now going to be in control of coming and going; having pop/coffee; easy parking; no insurance or booking fees necessary and we can leave our set up gear at the shop. All of this will be a major convenience!
We need presenters! You do not have to be a pro to do this, just willing and enthusiastic to share three fly tying patterns. You organize all the materials, lead us in tying the patterns. We will cover the costs of the materials.
Here are the dates. Please drop me a note and tell me what date works for you!
December 4th Bob Vanderwater The Canadian Series of Balanced Flies
