    Default Fly Tyers Weekend November 7th & 8th-2015

    What a weekend, I will need this week to rest from this one! It started for me with a Great Smoky Mountain TU Hot Dog fundraiser on Saturday with one chapter group of GSM TU volunteers in Pigeon Forge; to having our booth at Fly Tyers staffed with another group of GSM TU chapter members in Townsend. Two events on one day and we pulled it off thanks to the hard work of our chapter members.

    We finished up about 4PM selling hot dogs and I raced across the mountain to the Fly Tyers event in time for the BBQ dinner and the fly fishing film. Great BBQ from Miss Lilly's and Cherokee Ale kicked off the film, it was standing room only in the log lodge at Tremont Resort at film time. Of course I carved out a few minutes to enjoy a beverage and cigar sitting in the rockers on the big stone porch at the lodge, and talked to friends and people I had just met. I knew I had an early morning manning the Great Smoky Mountain TU table on Sunday so I had reserved a room at Docks. That place is true Townsend history and when they say check the message board they mean it. It is mounted on the wall between room 4-6, please do not use permanent marker! True Story!

    Here is a number of pictures from Sunday, I had to borrow a 110 V phone charger from Casting For Recovery on Sunday as I had forgotten mine and my phone died Saturday night while I slept evidently. This Second annual event was again fantastic and happens because of the volunteer work of many groups and people. If you have any shots especially Saturday please feel free to post them here.

    I can only speak for myself, but I had a great time.. The first person to sit at my table was a 5 year old and his Dad. Great times.
