Adults Fly Tying Group Forming

Several of our members get together on Thursday afternoons during the winter to tie flies. It’s a nice opportunity to share favorite patterns, learn new tricks and of course to build camaraderie. This year’s sessions will begin January 9th and be held on the second floor of the Tin Lizzy Restaurant in Youngstown, PA. Fly tying will begin around 1 pm. Those who are interested can join us for lunch first in the dining room at noon. Because of limited space, sign-ups will be handled on a first come, first serve basis. Please contact to register.
