Carp Class by Orvis

Orvis Chicago will be doing a free carp class! If you've ever wanted to explore this great fly fishing opportunity this is a great way to get started. An on the water instructional will be held Sept 7&8 on the DuPage River in Warrenville,IL.
Carp are a great species to target. They get big (20+ lbs), fight like hell and are everywhere. They're especially plentiful here in Chicago's park ponds, the River and the Lake.
For details go to or call the Orvis store to reserve your spot. Cost is free but reservation is required. And make sure you tell them you heard about it from Chi Tie!

August Wrap Up

Our meet up in August just passed and we had some new folks join us for a great time.  A lot of laughs were had, ridiculous stories were told, and a general good time was had by all.  Some of us managed to tie up a couple of flies and one guy was even able to sell one to a drunk! We had a few tiers and a few who just came by to hang out and have a drink with us.  Which is always welcome!
Mark your calendar September 9 is our next meeting.  Come on by to tie or just have a beer with us.  Everyone is welcome!
Until then here's a few shots of the action.

Hope to see you next month.  September 9. Until then- Tight lines, Cold beers, and Clean ties!
