May 14

May is here and the weather has finally turned around!  It's time to fish!  Whether you're out chasing big spring smallies, the lake shore coho run, or heading up to the driftless for some early camping and trout you're going to need some flies.  Come join us at our next meet up and tie a few! We'll be at Galway hanging out as always having a few beers and trying to get a few flies tied in between.  Bring whatever you need to tie or just come hang out and talk fishing with us!  Everyone (21+) is always welcome!  See you there!!

April 9

It's time to fish! Spring is officially here and the fishing is heating up.  Whether it's slob smallmouth, early carp, pike, or Lake Michigan trib salmon it's time to start getting out!  We've seen reports all over of fish being caught.  
Come join us on April 9 for some drinks and maybe get a couple of flies tied.  But mostly to hang with other cool fly fishers and get excited for this year!  As always we'll be at Galway Bay.  It's happy hour till 7:00 and dollar PBRs after that.  Everyone is always welcome (21+) whether pro tier or never tied.  
Hope we see you there!!

Gear Drive!

We're still collecting your gently used gear or new flies for Project Healing Waters.  Every year we try to give back to the community.  PHW helps rehabilitate veterans and active military personnel through fly fishing.  Bring gear and we'll take care of getting it into the hands of a deserving organization.

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!
