Fly Tying in Idaho

Hi all-

First off, thank you for committing to demonstrating your tying skills at our Expo this year!  Without you guys (and gals!)--well, the show just really wouldn't be very good!  We sure do appreciate your time and energy that you so graciously donate.

The show is quickly approaching and I am still in search of some more fly tiers to demonstrate.  If you know of any tiers in your local area, that may be interested in joining us, please feel free to share the information with them.  (I have attached the info again if you would like to pass it along to anyone). 

As a reminder, the Expo is March 20 & 21st at the Clearwater River Lodge & Event Center, here in Lewiston, ID.  

I look forward to seeing you all again and meeting those I haven't yet!  This year is gonna be a great one!

January 13, 2015 Meeting

Cathy Hamilton will be presenting "Three and a Half Different Ways to Weave a Fly" at the January 13 SOFT meeting.  This will be a techniques demonstration, rather than a demonstration of any specific flies.  If you're interested in trying any of the weaving techniques, just bring a few hooks (size 8 or 10 with a straight shank will be perfect for this), along with your vise, tools, and any color of thread.  Cathy will provide some cotton floss that you can use for the weaving. 

January’s meeting will also feature another informative presentation by Dave Roberts on Game Bird Feathers and their usage. He will have examples of skins so come prepared with your questions.

Meeting starts at 6:00 pm.
