January Wrap Up

It's a wrap! Our first meet of 2015!  It was great to see some friends again after making it through the holidays.  As always we had some great fishy conversation, a few brews, and even managed to tie a handful of flies.  Seems warmer weather and smallmouth are already on our minds.
Our next meet up will be February 9.  Hopefully we'll see you!  Until then- stay warm and try to keep busy with the Expos, shows, and local fly shop events.
