Welcome to the site. You'll find some good and helpful folk here. I'm a born and bred central NYer. I've been tying for over 50 years and hosting fly swaps for the past 11 years. I've got experience in working with newer tyers, youth as well as adult, and am happy to help anyone out. If you are experienced I would love to steal, er…, I mean LEARN from you! I've crossed pats with many fine tyers over these years and love to pay forward. I hope that we cross paths here.
BTW, my next swap theme will be my BS Swap (Before Synthetics!) and will be on the books in about a month. Just wrapping up my current, 2525 Swap (if you have grey hair think Zager and Evans - if not just go to YouTube for a fine one-hit wonder from the '60's). When someone has been tying for over 50 years it means one thing - I'M OLD!
