1.) Dave Hise, who owns Casters Fly Shop in Hickory, came up with an excellent way to allow tyers from around the world to manufacture their patterns. I took advantage of this great idea! Not for the money, but more so to give people the ability to test out my fur balls on a hook. I need some field testers. The Vinyl Rib Stone, Foam Back Ant, Extended Body Inchworm, and the Inch Caddis  (I know, pretty lame names) are now up and ready to go here. Still, my patterns (and names of said patterns) don't do justice when compared to the Hise's Heterogenius, Eggi Juan Kenobi, or the Hise's Sumpin' Ugly!

Big thanks to Dave for allowing me to join!

2.) The WNC Fly Fishing Expo is fast approaching. It is held on the 6th and 7th of November at the WNC Agriculture Center on Airport Rd in Asheville. I was asked to be a fly tying demonstrator at the Expo, so I'll be there on Sunday the 7th from noon until 4. Looks to be a ton of fun. Fly fishing, barbecue, and good friends just mix perfectly.

3.) Some of you may be members of the forum, or lurk around the THFFF. If you are, you may have seen a recent post about a young tyer (11) who just tied his first flies. Forum members pitched in and helped him get off on the right track. Now, when I started out, my flies looked like they just took a ride through a food processor. I was amazed at how great these flies looked for a first time fly tyer. He's already tying parachutes. That tells you something! So look out fly tying world, we have a fly tying mastermind in the makings...

Wow. Kudos to "Roll Cast". Those flies are great for any age tyer. Methinks that kid has a bright future.

Yeah, it's safe to say he's hooked on fly fishing and tying. I don't think I've ever seen anyone so enthusiastic about getting into the sport!
