We had another great session at WhiteWater flies last week for Kids on the Fly NWNJ. The kids tied one fly to fish with and one to wear! Our November meeting will be held the SECOND Saturday of the month which is November 10th, to coincide with the kids event being held at the Shoppes at Lafayette! Its going to be a fun filled event for kids so be sure to stop on by. We will be starting at 10am that day.
We had a full house during our April Session and are looking forward to May. The kids tied a variety of patterns including the Woolly Bugger as a warmup pattern for the new tyers. The new Regal Vises donated by the Catskill Fly Tyers Guild make the tying sessions a breeze and the kids have alot of fun using them.

Its going to be a cold weekend here in Northwestern New Jersey, and there's no better time to get into fly tying like the winter time.

Please join us Saturday January 6th, 2018 at White Water Flies in Lafayette, N.J. for our first tying group. We will be going over the basics of using tying tools and tying the woolly bugger.
