Someone deleted the original first page of this thread--it no longer makes sense, as it now begins with my query on the second page. Maybe Valla can repost the information about the gathering?--or delete the whole thread if it isn't happening?

-If interest is still there, it's being held October 9. The CHFT Facebook page will provide updates as we get closer.

The "gathering" isn't a general fly tying gathering---it's a heritage gathering, using pre-1969 hooks, tools, materials etc. The flies being tied are those popular in Catskills during that time, not the contemporary stuff.

-This is not a "Guild" organization. There are no dues, banners, formal membership lists, newsletters etc.

-You can use modern materials, vises, hooks in the final 3 hours (in the afternoon) ,but we prefer you stick with the "old" tools, vises, hook models during the entire session--- (it's being held 9-3) but the flies tied must be pre-1969 patterns, popular in Catskills.

-Complete "rules" are found in the group's Facebook Page.
-At this point, we're still going to hold it, October 9, at the Rockland House, in Roscoe.

-Limited tying chairs are available.
