Need help with kids fly tying at Trout Fest

All, Guy Harris from Kerrville is organizing the kid's fly tying workshops on Saturday and Sunday (Feb 19-20) of Trout Fest. He needs some volunteers to act as assistants for the kids. You don't need to be an expert tier to help out. If you are interested please email Guy at Gunyon003@AOL.com

Re: Fly Swap!

Great idea Tug.

One suggestion; for the 13th dozen you might consider offering them as a silent auction item for Trout Fest. Contact Phil Dopson for details (contact info on the "contacts" page of the GRTU Web site).
