Jan. 19th meeting - AON fly tying

AFR monthly meeting
Thursday, January 19, 2023

6:00pm meeting
Pack & Paddle Outpost, 601 E. Pinhook, Lafayette

This month, our meeting  will be held in conjunction with the Acadiana Open Night Fly Tying Group meeting. This month's guest fly tyer will be Chris Williams, aka “The Fat Fingered Fly Tyer”.  As a lot of you know, Chris has a website by that name and is a very active tyer and fisherman.  He publishes a wealth of knowledge about all things fly fishing and fly fishing related. Plan to bring your vise and tying materials. As with all AONFTG events, there promises to be beer!

It will be dark by 6:00pm so probably no fly casting can be done. But do please come early and see what all Pack and Paddle has to offer.

See you on the 19th!
