    I am working on some neat ones. Need to keep the hair ideas flowing. You will see them soon and more than one. All who tie should enter. It is fun and a great way to learn. All who enter are winners. Irish
  9. I did mean 2007 and the host hotel is the Pine Mountain inn at Callaway Gardens and Atlanta is the best bet for airport although columbas, GA can ba an option. We have a room rate for Callaway and be sure to mention the FFF when registering. There are other hotels in the area. I have not heard about the Lake Charles location yet. I will post when i do. Dave
  10. Harold, a great testimonial to the FFF and the Southern Council Conclave. The conclave is always a good time. Take that billy munn fly and put it away. AI too was there, taking a stab at master's Casting Instructor Test. I ma working some more on that. It was good for me to see some old friends that you mentioned and good for both of us to meet some news friends also. All conclaves provide the fellowship and chances to learn more about fly fishing and tying in a couple of days than you can in a year or two on your own. That fly by Mike George was a great one. Harold you are right the membership is not that expensive and the conclave is worth the drive. I would add to your post for the FFF hosting the best tyers in the world. charles Jardine was excellent at representing England. A couple of up comming conclaves close to Texas are the Southeastern Council conclave at Callaway Gardens, Pine Mountain, GA June 7 - 9, 2006 and the Gulf Coast Council conclave in Lake Charles, LA May 17 - 19, 2007. All come on down and a good time will be had by all. Irish Dave Duffy Member FFF and President SE Council
  11. Congrats to you and your club from another who took a few of those medals that you guys didn't win.

  12. TroutBum & Stack were in the corner and "forgot" to save me a seat between them. :ripped: Some really neat flies tied there and they had the bird'seye seat across the isle from Jim Stewart, the MASTER HAIR SPINNER. :bugeyes: :bugeyes: :yahoo: :yahoo: A few beverages were hoisted and a good time was had. stack was presented with the Tier of the Year award by the Southeast Council. The show will be June 7 - 9, 2007 again at Callaway. Irish Dave
