What we're about

fly-ty·ing (n.) Fly tying is the art or hobby of producing an artificial fly to be used by anglers to catch fish via means of fly fishing.

The Vise Squad is a start-up group of novice, intermediate & advanced fly fishers who share the passion of catching a fish on a fly that was tied by their own hands. You don’t necessarily need to be a fly fisherman to get hooked on this hobby. Even people who have never before wet a fishing line see tying flies as its own form of artistic expression. A member would have to supply all his/her own materials and tying equipment. Visitors would be welcome to watch, learn and maybe try their hand at tying. Join us for friendly monthly fly tying nights, excursions, food, drink and lying about all aspects of their fishing experiences.

Discuss possible locations for monthly Vice Squad fly tying nights

I would like to find a convenient location that the group can use for our monthly fly tying nights. Preferably some place free or at minimal cost to the group. What do you suggest? I've seen some community centers that charge by the hour & libraries with limited hours. Possibly a bar or restaurant with back room on slow nights, just as long as we eat & drink? Are you friendly with any one shop that would sponsor our casual meetings? Fire houses make for a good spot but usually you must be member of their squad. Do you own a business that closes early and are able to utilize that space? Perhaps we can hold it on a Tuesday or Wednesday night after 7:00 pm. I'm just throwing this out for any prospective members looking to join The Vise Squad. Tight lines!
