Brett and Sue from the Rangeley Region Sport Shop are hosting a tying event on Saturday January 6th from 9am to 6pm at the Red Onion in Rangeley. They graciously donated fly boxes for our CFR day camp and now we need to fill them. Come up for the day and tie. Good company, better pizza and all for a great cause! If you can’t make the event and would like to donate flies for the boxes you can send me a pm and I’ll get you an address.

Ken.....

I’m in for a dozen. I M met where you need them sent.

We must have thrifty tiers on here that can give a dozen. Thirty dozen should take care of whatever the ladies need......and maybe (??) raffle the rest off to make money to support the program?

Thanks Dave! Will send you the address.

All- we will have somewhere between 15-18 participants. Two dozen flies for each x 18 is 36 dozen. Think of the basic flies someone would want in their box.

Ken - I don't tie, but I have a dozen I can send along for the cause.

One dozen No Sink Caddis done......another dozen tomorrow.
Come on guys/gals......this is one of the best programs for us to give back.
I’d guess almost all of us have family or friends that have had breast cancer.
Let’s do this......

I want to work on Goddard caddis- so will attempt to tie those. The only thing standing in my way is finding the right hackle in the right size in my tying room (which is a bit out of order at the moment).

I'm in for a couple dozen of something Ken.... tying stuff will likely not come out for another 6 weeks or so, but you'll get it before June, that's for sure.
