I saw in the fishing report this morning that Walter Babb was in teaching a small advanced tying class. I want to encourage anyone who gets a chance to take a class from Walter. I watched Walter last year at Troutfest and was very impressed. Walter may be as good as anyone i have every seen tie, and I've seen a bunch. Not only that, his friendly demeanor and willingness and ability to explain every little detail was amazing. I wanted to watch a couple others tie during the time he was tying but I became so entranced in watching and listening to him I never moved. BTW, does anyone remember what kind of dubbing he was using on his Smoky Mt Candy pattern?
