Last Fly Tying Night of the Season, ‘Iron Fly’ Competition at Grizzly Hackle
I can not believe our last and final tying night in Missoula is this week! It is bittersweet for me, it means tying is over but more fly fishing starts soon. This event has meant so much to myself and others that I can not thank everyone enough who has been involved one way or another.
I started this almost a year ago at a local brewery, it started with about 10 people. Now we have 30 plus consistently and even hit our record best with 50 tiers on the 9th of February. It has come a long way but like I said not without the help of a lot of people.
Do not miss the last event, sure to be a fun time.
Feb 23rd 6:30-8:30 PM at Grizzly Hackle: 215 W Front Street
'IRON FLY'- 7PM -8PM ( get there early so I can explain what is going on)
FREE Beer, Mimosas, Pizza and Chili.
Giveaways during IRON FLY.
What is the 'Iron Fly'?
Have you heard of Iron Chef? It's like that but with tying flies. We will have three categories : beginner, intermediate and advanced. EACH group will have a set group of materials and have one hour to tie something they think would catch a fish with NO help from instructors. NO experience needed to be a part of this. From 6:30 -7 we will be tying so if you are beginner get a quick lesson and then join the fun, you would be surprised what will catch fish.
We will award prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places in each category.
Join the fun!
