Fly Tying Clave report

Well our own Mr. Sully was gracious enough to host his first tying clave. As a member of the Stoneybrook Fish and Game Association, Sully was able to use this great facility in Westford, MA. The club has a beautiful room lined with various taxidermy on the main floor and a lounge downstairs.
Though turnout seemed a bit shy, 5 of us whipped up a storm. I was overwhelmed by the ammount of tying materials 5 guys can produce. And the patterns, jeez, there was so much to see and learn.
With no agenda, we basically sat down and started tying those flies which we each have been working at lately. So right away 5 different patterns were being twisted up. The lesson here is it doesn't take many tyers to make one of these succesful.
As a new tyer I leaned on these guys to help me with a few problem areas and help they did. Thank you again Mr. Sully for the hand whip finish lesson, and thank you Nathan for the crab pattern lesson. Look forward to the next one, afterall,
it's still february Thank you again Sully for a job well done.
