The Fantasy Fly Draft?

Saturday evening after Catch Cormier's pond program. Probably around 8:00 maybe. Save a little energy and get some nice flies!

Bring six your favorite Little Mo flies, no matter whether you tie them yourself or acquire them elsewhere! Participants get their names in the hat, name gets called, you get to pick three flies each time around till they're all gone!

Always a bit of fun and a good way to get some new things!

I miss being one of the "usual suspects".  Unfortunately, the schedule just never seems to work out these days in mid February.  Have some fun for me!

First time in a while but I will actually get to attend back to back festivals. See you guys next weekend. Jeff, I'll be in late on Thursday so if you need some help on Friday setting up just let me know. Otherwise, I'll be on the river Friday.

Thanks Jeff and everyone that participated in putting on the festival.  Thank you to all the tiers that invested time and energy in teaching Chase and Stephanye. We learned a lot and throughly enjoyed it. I caught my first brown trout Sunday evening or maybe I should say snagged, I had him hooked in the eye. I guess he was inspecting the fly to close. One more reason to use barbless hooks.

Thanks
James
