ACF Weekend Workshop

Took a break from orders over the weekend and ran a streamer workshop at my house. I had Jim and Dave come over from New York and Dallas come down from Michigan to see how many patterns we could get through...and how much fun we could have doing it. We got set up at the kitchen table and jumped right in.

Jim was all about getting a good collection of big flies ready to chase fish. He has been bit by the streamer bug bad and was able to add quite a few to his box.

Dallas left straight from work and drove through the night to make it. He has tied a few flies with me before but this was the most time we have spent at a vise. Had a great time BSing with the guys and knocking out patterns.

With the lack of sleep and a few beers it did get a little weird at times...

Overall we ended up knocking out nine big articulated streamers and three flies for swinging. I had a great time with the guys and am looking forward to the next time we can get together.

  1. Looks a nice time had by all, and what a great way to build tying skills. Take life out of the way and practice, full boxes or learn better techniques.

  2. Yo Mike! Just curious? How long did it take to scrap the excess clear goo off that nice table! :)
