I see. Heck, My local Hobby Lobby has as much stuff that you can tie flies with 
as most Fly Shops. Maybe they'd let me hold classes there LOL, Chuck

        We had a chain Dept Store in South Jersey that had "Craft Month". 
Classes on all types of crafts were had. I did Beginning Fly Tying for three 
years.

                  OK here is one.
                  I was doing beginner fly tying classes at a Dept Store in N.J.
                   This was a 6 week course. I had a husband and wife team sign 
up along with 10 other students.
                  I started out with the basics pointing out the materials and 
tools and how they are used.
                  This gentleman just sat quiet. As we progressed through the 
weeks I noticed he had a real knack for tying. His flies were top line. He 
never asked for help or had any questions.
                  At the end of the six weeks I commented to him about his 
flies being so good. He said he had been tying for 40 years and took the class 
so his wife would take it. He said he had not been able to teach her but that I 
did a good job. In the classes he has attended, this was one of the best.
                  My face was red but I was also proud. They joined our tying 
group and she is a good fly tyer now.
                  That was 20 years ago

Hello, VFB.I'd like to start a thread about something of interest to me, 
andhopefully, to some of you.What stories do you have, that happened, when you 
were at a fly tying event?You were either tying your flies, or witnessing 
another tyer'spresentation.  Or expanded, to include the presentations at 
thecasting pond?  Possibilities suggested might be educational,historical, 
colorful, or just danged funny.And they have to be true stories, which has to 
be a huge challenge,for fly fishers!-----Anybody want to start the ball 
rolling?  Just thought of this, and Idon't have anything in mind, or written, 
of my own.  Will do one,though.Wes WadaBend, Oregon
