What is Chi-Tie?
“We are just a group of fly fishers and tiers meeting up for a few beers while tying.  Trying to build connections and community among us in Chicago.  We welcome anyone and everyone.”  – Chi-Tie
The core members of Chi-Tie are Dave Knutzelman (Urban Assault Fly Fishing), Adam Alexander (Adam Alexander Photography), and Tim Adkins (Critical Angling).

They meet on the 2nd Monday of each month, and I have been able to join them a few times.  One of those times was last month, and there was no particular theme.  There were some new and old faces, and everyone was tying something different.  Flies for bass, trout, and pike.
Few beers, few flies, and some great fishy conversation.  Always a good time at Galaway Bay.  So, if you’re ever in the Chicagoland area and it’s the 2nd Monday of the month, you definitely check out Chi-Tie.
