I am having trouble putting the faces with the screen names, however sounds like I might have met you at Lake Rim Fly Fishing class. There is an informal fly tying club, "Fayetteville Fly Tyers", though it has been less than active lately and is unstructured. Its main event has been the annual Fly Tie-a-thon that this year will be the end of April. Also, we occasionally get together at someones house and tie flies. Your participation would be welcome, just drop me an email.
Also, there is a local chapter of Trout Unlimited (Cross Creek TU), however it is currently dormant. I had previously thought about starting a Federation of Fly Fishers local group here but was a bit intimidated by the work involved in setting something like that up.
There is something to be said for keeping it informal, then one doesn't have to worry about legal issues, dues, etc.. Pehaps jus a collection of names on a common email list would start. I could add your names to the FFT list if you would like and we could plan an informal fly tying get together sometime soon.
I'm heading out of town for a couple of weeks. I will be back the week of March 12th. If everyone agrees, I would vote that we get together on the 13th at a local restraunt at 7pm for a little dinner and conversation.
didn't look my first message went thru. I have to work on the 13th, maybe another time? Or let me know what everyone figures out if you guys do meet. My boat goes in the shop tomarrow for about a week but I'm looking for any takers who would like to join me in two weeks searching for some small reds on the coast. There are some pics from this last week of two reds we caught under the salt water photos
