AND the first "BUGS and BREWS" fly tying event takes place tonight........
The first Bugs and Brews fly tying event will take place at Czig Meister Brewery in Hackettstown, NJ, located at 106 Valentine Street starting at 6:00PM. This is the first time for this event, which has been organized by Frank Rosata of Ridge and Valley Trout Unlimited.
On March 3, 2017, RVTU will host its first "Bugs and Brews Night." This is an open tying event. Bring materials to tie your own patterns or match up with other tiers and learn theirs. This is a great opportunity to learn and ask questions.
We encourage other Trout Unlimited Chapters to participate and help spread the message of TU's cause and our great sport of FlyFishing/FlyTying. We also encourage you to bring a banner supporting your local TU chapter.
Some notes about Czig Meister Brewery. They have a ample selection of their craft Brews. YOU CAN NOT BYOB. They do not serve food but they encourage you to support local restaurants (many of which deliver) or bring your own food. The space they will reserve for us in the back is rather large. I noted they lighting was actually pretty good but a tying lamp always helps. I also took notice of the tables. C- Clamps will work on some, but if you have a base clamp bring that. We're hoping this will be the first of many events for us.
