The Fly Tyer of the Year!
Posted 27 January 2005 - 10:04 PM
The 2004 Fly Tyer of the Year award goes to calebB and his amazing Dry Fly. calebB is now the proud owner of a bamboo fly rod that was custom built Carl and is something that I am sure he will cherish for a lifetime. Going back and looking through calebB's previous posts I see that he is only 15 years old and ties for a few local shops! Not only did his dry fly get 81 votes for the dry fly category and most votes for "Best Overall" but his entire collection of contest flies performed extremely well with a couple of 2nd place finishes.
Congratulations calebB, you tied a terrific fly you should be quite proud. I will be contacting you soon about the shipment of your new bamboo rod.

You deserve it!! I voted for your dry fly it was the best, most interesting, eye catching, inspiring fly and rightly so you've won the honorable distinction of Fly Tyer of the Year 2004!!!!
I'm very happy for you!
