March 12

It's finally (sort of) spring!!  The temps are starting to climb and it's time to get serious about filling some fly boxes! Come hang out with us Monday March 12th to tie a few flies, have a few drinks, and have some good fishy conversation with great people.  It's time to get excited about the upcoming season and start making fishing plans!  As always everyone (21+) is welcome regardless of tying or drinking level!  Just join us! 
Also for the next two months we will be doing our annual Project Healing Waters collection.  Support our vets by donating your old gear or flies- just bring them to Chi-Tie and we'll take care of getting it into the hands of our local chapter!

February 12

Another month another Chi- Tie!  It's February and that means winter is almost over and spring is around the corner.  With these warmer days it's easier to see the light at the end of the tunnel!  Time to start thinking about the early season and tying some flies to fill those boxes back up.  We'll be back at Galway on Monday the 12th this month.  Come join us for some good drinks, good company, and good tying.  Of course this will be an open tie so bring whatever you need to tie whatever you want! 
As always- everyone is welcome (21+).  We hope to see you there!

September 11

Summer is winding down and fall is coming up fast!  Whether your focus is those lake run trout and salmon or big pike and musky, it's time to think about tying.  Come join us at Galway Bay where we'll be knocking down a few beers and getting a few flies tied for the upcoming season.  As always everyone is welcome- from seasoned tyer to rookie.  Or if you just want to hang out with other fly fishers then come on out!
Hope to see you there-
