I'm from Lexington. I'm older than Byron! My fishing has been put on hold for several years due to the care of elderly parents. I still try to tie some and I was able to make the Charlotte Show. I try to keep up through the forum it's one of the best I've seen. LRO does a great job all the way around from the forum, to customer service, newsletter and conservation efforts.

I am Barry Murphy, I just moved from Waynesville to halfway between Canton and Clyde. Not originally from there, Roger Lowe taught me to tie and I spent a bunch of time at his shop, frineds with a handful of guys from the Waynesville flyshop.

Yeah, I hang out in there some. I did some work for Matt also. Sorry to see him leave, he's a good feller. Maybe we'll run into each other sometime.

Hope so man, I met a guy the other day that Matt said was looking in to buying the shop, I only spoke to him for a bit and forgot his name, I think he was from Asheville? i just hope we get a shop, I order a bunch of my stuff from LRO but having a place to hangout and pick up the essentials tippet materials etc is important, I have been to Hunter banks but rarely get that real welcome kinda feeling? Hope to see ya soon.

I know several Davis but not a Chad. If you learned fly tying under Roger you had a great teacher. I've been in his shop several times before he closed it and talked with him at the Charlotte Show. He and Kevin Howell are great guys. I'm glad they are trying to keep the older patterns alive. I like to tie them and to know their history. They still work!

Congrats on the slab they can be great fun.
