Back in May (I think…sooo long ago haha)….I attended a fly tying event hosted by Jen of Dun Magazine and Kurt of a Tight Loop. The purpose of the event was to tie flies that were going to be donated to the Milwaukee charter for Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing or PHWFF. All that was needed was your vise, and tools. All of the other materials were provided.
The event took place at a fantastic unknown (..to me) distillery not far from my home named Copper Fiddle Distillery. Travis the mixologist or mix master working behind the counter is a magician who creates some fantastic drinks. If you’re ever in that area, I suggest you stop.
The fly to be tied for the Milwaukee PHWFF Chapter was the ever so reliable clouser minnow. I forget the total number of people that showed up, but it was a fantastic turnout, and a lot of flies were tied.
Quite the turnout.
It was a great event that was for an excellent cause.
