I just had a great weekend of fellowship and fly tying. This past Saturday I drove out to the Cumberland Transit Shop in Nashville, Tennessee to have a day of fellowship and give a presentation on what East Tennessee has to offer to anglers coming to the Tri-Cities. When you are in Nashville be sure to stop by and see Ronnie (aka Grumpy) or Leo, the whole shop is great and these guys are the best. I appreciate the hospitality and talking fishing with all of the good folks who came to the shop.
Then Sunday morning I drove down to Asheville, North Carolina to participate in the Southern Culture on the Fly “Tie – one – on – athon” benefiting Project Healing Waters. Many great tiers from all over the southeast came together for a day of tying, excellent food, fun and fellowship. We tied plenty of flies that will be sold in in the area shops with all proceeds going to support Project Healing Waters. Time to get all my tying gear back on my tying bench and get ready for some good float trips this week.
Mark your calendars for this coming Thursday March 1st, I will be speaking at the Northern Kentucky Fly Fishers meeting. I hope you can make it.
If you haven’t got your date set for the Caddis Hatch on the Watauga Tailwater near Elizabethton, Tennessee, give me a call and get your date on the calendar. The dates are filling fast and I don’t want you to miss out on this. We are seeing more caddis cases on the rocks than we have seen in many years so we are expecting a great hatch this year.
Have a great week and if you get out to fish, may you have tight lines and heavy nets.
