Tie Fest February 16, 2008
The club will be there again this year. Please join us to man our display, tie flies, and in general have a great time during the loooong, cold, off-season!
New member and would like more info on the tie fest. Location, time, admission fee and schedule of events/venfors if available.
Tie Fest is a free event run by Tony who is active on the Tidalfish site and Mid-Atlantic Fly Anglers. Most of the pertinent information is show in the bulletin posted above. Kent Island is on the eastern end of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge (not to be confused with the Chesapeake Bay Bridge tunnel!).
The club will have a display and members will take turn "manning" it. Flies will be tied and questions about the club answered. We would be glad to have you join us.
Check out the "sticky" at the top of the fly fishing board for more info:
This year there will be two special guests, Bob Popovics and Lefty Kreh. The event is sort of like a smaller version of the Somerset, NJ fly fishing show only free to get in and more user friendly.
Hope to see you there!

It was nice to meet you at Tiefest, and I look forward to attending a club meeting in the near future. You fellows have a great club and I had the pleasure of meeting several members at the show. One question though, who's older Lefty or Don?
Silverfish Flies / Regal Engineering
it was nice to meet you and I believe you also spoke to Ron Smith about doing a presentation at one of our meetings. Hope you can make it!
Thank you so much for the kind words about our club!
Don just turned 74 in January and I believe Lefty is 83.
