    Fly tying weekend 2021?

    Any possibility of a FTW sometime in 2021, depending on the status of the pandemic? Attended one many years ago and enjoyed it. Also, miss Troutfest.

    Very nice photos. Hope to get up there and spend some time with a new camera. What camera were you using? A DSLR will have settings to compensate for dim lighting or even no lighting.
