First Fly Tying Night, what to do?

I'm not "social" enough to go to a "tie your own flies" event.  What's the point?  I can tie my own flies right here at home.

For a little food, drink, comradery, maybe pick up a new trick, learn about a new material or pattern, check out a different vise, or make a new friend. A little socializing once a month never killed anyone. I enjoyed it.

So do I. We tie and trade flies.

Since everyone that attends want to be there, we have a good time. During the summers, out TU chapter reserves one of the covered shelters at a riverside park so we can both tie and fish. We give casting and fishing lessons. Our TU chapter provides the burgers, beer and soft drinks.

That's a great idea.  I'm going to bring that up at my FF club, if we're ever allowed to meet again.

Smith-Corona also made rifles during WWI. Had one but not a WWI vet.

BTW, I'm NOT THAT OLD! 😉

Also, another of Cortland's contribution to WW I came from Brockway Trucks as well!

I'm not either. M1903 and M1903A3 Springfields were surplus back in the early 60s. Cost was about $40.  Now they sell for $400! Stolen in 1970!
