Who are the Southern Oregon Fly Tyers?


 We're just a friendly group of fly tyers who like to get together at least once a month to tie flies. We have no formal structure, no officers, except for a few dearly beloved deceased members, and no dues. Anyone can be a member. Just come to the meetings.

The building will open at 5:30 PM for setup and chit chat, but the meeting won't begin until 6:00. All tyers, whether experienced or inexperienced, all are welcome. Heck, you can come even if you aren't a tyer. You’re welcome to watch, ask questions, drink coffee, eat cookies, and just hang out.

We've been running a bucket raffle at the last few meeting with lots of goodies up for grabs. It's always handy to bring a few extra dollars. There's always something for sale, and tips and donations are very welcome.

We have a different demonstration tyer at each meeting, usually followed by a tie-along session. The pattern and materials required will be posted to this blog. Bring your tools, lights, extension cords, and materials to learn a new pattern to add to your arsenal. Lots of fun for all, along with coffee and some cookies.

Please invite a friend and forward blog address on to anyone else who might be interested. Come early so you don't miss anything, and stay late. We've invited several new tyers to attend our SOFT meetings. If you see any new faces, please introduce yourself and make them welcome.
