Hey all, looks like i'm going to be spending this winter in NS and i'll be hauling my Fly-Stuff from Ontario back to the condo in Bedford.
If anyone would like to get some time at the vise to start/improve or tackle some more advanced patterns, i'm willing to buddy-up and maybe get a few folks together to do a few "Forum" social evenings and make the most of some weekday evenings this fall/winter.
I'm looking to see how much interest there is, how many other experienced fly-tyers we can get to help, and first and foremost is there a venue in the Bedford/Halifax area we can use?,
I know for a fact that the first time we try to do Deer-Hair Stacking/Spinning, SWMBO would throw me/us out of the condo so we are looking for a forum member with some den/basement area we can
Maybe there exists a decent fly tying club in our area we can go to?, I just didn't want to hijack another group, just an informal forum thing?..
Admin, any chance of making this a sticky for a few weeks?.
Count me in as a beginner. Just don't leave me alone with Krazy Glue. I need adult supervision.
The Flies & Lies group should be starting up again after salmon season. I think they meet on Tuesday evenings every other week at the Legion in Lower Sackville. Friendly folks, lots of space, good tables and lighting, and adult beverages. I only went the one time to observe, and I'm sure we'd be welcome if we wanted to piggyback on their regular nights. Other options could include going to a local pub (e.g., the Riverside is within
walking distance) on a different night so we don't fragment the Flies & Lies group. Lots of possibilities...
It would be cool to pick a pattern that a few of us could work on together each evening and/or do a "real time" fly swap.
Oh, by the way, I might have misled you a bit about winter in Nova Scotia. Google "White Juan" and look at the images...
