Bell's tie takeover

Is anyone interested in tying flies at Bell's Eccentric Cafe'? I'm game to host a tie in. You bring your vice and 20-25mm waddington shanks and hook. I will supply everything else needed to tie a badass steelhead fly. We did this a few years ago at Founders. Good times. And steelhead caught on flies we tied. Respond to post if interested. Im thinking early to mid november.

Yeah - I'd be interested in something like this.



The 1st week of November sounds good for me.

Tie in

Sounds like an awsome get together, we use to do these in Washington and they were a fun way to get some tying in and maybe have a few beers with freinds. Good stuff!

Anyone who has the opportunity to make this ...... should. Gary is very generous to show one of his patterns and is a great teacher. Plus ...... The beer and hanging out is a win win.

Is this just another excuse for me to buy more rods ?

OK Gang,
Here's the scoop.
This thing is ON!

Saturday November 9th @ Noon
BELL'S INSPIRED TYING
in the Bell's Eccentric Cafe.

You show up with your vise and thread.
I will supply shanks, hooks, and tying materials to tie up a skagit minnow shizzle. Just like the one in the picture. (Steelhead not included)
I will do the SBS where we pass around the material for each step.
Tyers of all skill level welcome.
Also, all are welcome to free style tie whatever inspires you.
Not a tyer? Not a problem. Stop by to say hi and swap a few stories.
I'll see you in Kalamazoo,
Gary
PS thanks to Bob B at Great Lakes Fly Shop for supplying materials

Depending on water conditions, I may or may not be there...

Always wanted to check out the cafe and never have...

Sounds like fun!

To anyone coming up for the Bells tying, keep in mind that the Kalamazoo Holiday parade is going on that saturday as well. It might be done by the time that the tying starts, but your usual routes in to Bell's might not be clear.
