Hello All : I just have to send this wonderful story out to all you you that have supported my flyshop for over 28 years now. Many thanks to Pat patterson , one of our valued members for sending this my way. I think this is a great read and spills the whole picture in one article.

On the other side of business, the fly club is tying flies and promoting our club at the Waneta Mall 23, 24th. thats today 2pm till 9 pm. Yes some will be there for the day shift and some of us will be on the evening shift. Had a great time yesterday and looks good for today. Thanks to Len , Fran, Blake, Chico for their time spent tying at the Mall.

Try to remember our meeting March 1, 7 pm, Robson School, we have our favorite speaker Dave Derossa coming out for a talk on fish??
I left it up to him for the topic. He always does a great job, see you there.

Two fly tying inquiries, first we need 12 flies for the fish draw for the symposium, 2nd we need people to add six flies to the Mayfly draw box. yes any type of mayfly, wet or dry gets you into the draw.

Last, we are still tying tuesday nites at my house in Castlegar and Wed nites in Fruitvale. One more time. Did some great soft hackles last tuesday, Bill G was the tying gurru last tues.

OK till next time, tight lines and bent rods. Rod Zavaduk. enjoy this read on fly shops. RZ.
