I hope you had an enjoyable Christmas break. We are quickly heading towards January 2023 and I want to get this workshop organized. As many of you know, it has been a tradition to have Phil come to Red Deer to do an all day fly tying workshop. He has done 11 over the years and there is a window of opportunity to get the 12th workshop in! Phil is an outstanding educator and instructor. Whether you are new to fly tying or a seasoned tyer, this will be a workshop you will definitely want to take in.
The workshop will cost $75 and will include a pizza lunch (part of the cost). To make the workshop a go, we will need approximately 25 tyers. Phil will supply the tying materials. He may ask you to secure some basic thread or wire or I will supply them.
Phil's workshop is about tying technique and he will be teaching us how to tie flies that he has in his fly box that have an international flavour to them.
Can you get back to me ASAP about participating. We need to order the tying materials for the 11 fly patterns Phil will be teaching us to tie. Check with your tying friends. This promises to be an outstanding day of fly tying! This workshop is for everybody, no matter what your tying skill is.
We will also have a PUB NIGHT on Friday February 10th. It has been a tradition to get us all socializing. Phil and his wife will be there!
See everyone on January 9th when we get Fly Tying Mondays back up and running. Rick Miyauchi will be our guest tyer. Rick is an outstanding fly tying instructor.
Take care and I look forward to hearing from you!
