Fort Washington Sports Show Jan 19th-23rd
Reminder, the Ft. Washington show is coming up. We need volunteers to man our both and we need you to tye flys and donate them to us for sale at the show. They don't have to be fancy - wooly buggers sell fine and they're simple to tye, so tye up a gross and bring them to the meeting.
Call or email Ed Emery to volunteer to help at the show. Do it now! You can get Ed's email and/or phone number from the members only page.
