Good question. Yes, after we have completed the list of tyers we will write and post a schedule on the Troutfest website. At the event you can buy a weekend pass for $10 to visit the tent and watch the tyers. I want to have 15 tyers working about 4 hours in shifts. That will require 60 tyers. I have several more who I will contact. I have only been turned down by two so far due to schedule conflicts. Our goal of course is to raise money for the Park Service Fisheries Department. I think this tying tent alone will net $15,000.
I met with Dale who is the Superintendent of the Park tonight about Cades Cove road. I just got back to the shop. He is planning to be at the Banquet on Friday night. He has never attended before. Everyone will enjoy meeting Dale.
