I rented the room from 10:00 am until 1:00 pm on the 11th

Same as always. Come and go whenever you like. Tie or Lie (or both) as you like.

The tying is at the Fairfield Community Center. Some people will meet for breakfast at 9:00 am or so - Big G's in Winslow.

No charge. Plenty of people who have tied flies for a long time and know a variety of techniques and don't mind questions about how to tie. So, feel free to bring questions.

Hope to see you there.

Just a reminder.

And I just put out a newsletter for my rotary fly tying site and one of the flies I tied is the Brown Owl. If you want to see the video here's a link to the Newsletter https://mailchi.mp/f9d8054d0100/3-more-rotary-fly-tying-videos-2435197 and if you scroll down you'll see a picture of a Brown Owl. Click on it to see the video.

I mention this because I'll be tying some Brown Owls tomorrow at the Tie and Lie and I don't mind sharing materials (including the Teal Flatwing) if you want to try a couple.

I put the wrong date on the intro to the video clip I put together showing some of the flies tied at the Tie and Lie but it's only a couple days off :lol:

Anyway, if you want to see the one-minute clip it's at:
