Guys Flies & Pies Event

Yes laddies and gents, it's almost here - The 2011 Guys, Flies & Pies event!

With all this wonderful snow and cold weather we have had, many of us have been spending time catching up on our fly tying. This means filling up our boxes, tying some new patterns, and maybe even trying to learn a few new tricks at the vise. And if we are lucky, we get to go to a fly fishing seminar or a fly tying event that will keep us on our toes and inspire us to stay focused on tying.

Good thing Michael Simmons was on the ball this year because we have the Guys Flies and Pies event to go to!!!! And this year it will be held on February 19th from 3:00pm till midnight. And with all the door prizes, raffles, and pizza (can't forget about that!) it's really a no-brainer!! Plus you get to meet a bunch of great local fly fishermen and tiers from the Western part of the state....what could be better?

This is truly a wonderful event that Mike and his wife Crystal put together every year, so check out their website, look around, and make sure to let him know that you will be attending this year. And don't forget about their facebook page either!

Make sure to bring your vise, materials to tie with and an empty belly to fill....and maybe even a tall tale or two.

See you there!!
