Saturdays are better than Sunday’s for me, but whatever works.

A Saturday Tie and Lie appears to be the winner and either Saturday seems to work. I flipped a coin and the 5th won so:

Tie and Lie at the Fairfield Community Center on January 5th (Saturday) from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm.

For the Tie and Lie the format remains:
10:00 am until 2:00 pm - people come and go as they please.
No Admission
Bring your tools and tying material - or don't.
How to questions are often asked and answered. Ask away if you need help with a fly or technique.
Not the best lighting - you may want to bring a light and extension cord.
There will be coffee, cups, cream and sugar and maybe someone will bring some cookies :-)

and finally, some people will gather at Big G's around 9:00 am for breakfast.

Hope to see you there.

Here's a clip from an earlier January Tie and Lie

I'm not sure of the exact address- but it's on Water Street in Fairfield, right next to the police station and across the street from the take out when you drift Shawmut. If coming from 95 towards Touch of Love hot dog stand (former flyshop), turn right at the light. Go through the light at Bridge Street and turn left at the Big Apple. The community center will be the second building on your left after the Big Apple. Parking is across the street.

Good time at the Tie and Lie yesterday.
Here's a minute or so video showing some of the flies and people that were there to Tie and Lie.

Always a fun time. It was good to se friends that we don’t often get to see. I learn a new fly or a trick new to me every time I attend one of these. Thanks Mike for hosting.
