I just got a call from Mike Adams from Bluff City Tennessee. He is a guide and works at Mahoneys. He is an excellent fly tyer and nice guy. He will be tying at Troutfest.

Thanks Mike.

Byron--

If you don't slow down we'll have no one attending Troutfest!!

They'll all be in your tent tying flies for each other!

Default Mike Adams

I talked to Mike at Mahoney's yesterday. I mentioned I had seen on this message board that he would be tying for the festival. He seemed to be excited and also mentioned that he is coming to a Saturday tying class this winter. For those who don't know him, he is a really nice guy and if your ever in town and need a guide on the SoHo or Watauga he is excellent at catching the big ones on those tailwaters. Glad to see he is going to be helping out at LRO.

Everyone is going to enjoy Mike Adams. He is an excellent fly tyer, he is nice and he has some great stories.

Roger Lowe just called. He is going to tie at Troutfest too. Roger is another talented nice guy. He guides in Western North Carolina. He is a good friend.

I have several more fly tying demonstrators to contact. We're not close to being done yet!

Roger Lowe put on an excellent demonstration last year. Byron, are you going to eventually post some type of tying schedule, so we'll know who's tying when?

Hi Trevor,

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.

Byron
