So anyway, we found a great basement bar--Galway Bay--a few blocks from a very fishy harbor and did the first trial event last night. We were joined by Isaac from Wig Bags (check him out--he makes awesome custom bags for any purpose). Dave and Isaac can tie some flies. Between all of us, there was a nice variety of bugs on the table. The bar staff were cool, too, hanging out around the table to watch and ask about local fishing. Bill, the bartender, even offered up a free round of shots to celebrate our first event.
We are hoping this event grows to become a regular thing with many more participants from the city and surrounding area. Time will tell. We'll be working on recruitment and promotion in the weeks to come. Dave already has a cool "Chi-Tie" logo in the works. Keep an eye out for the final draft.
Thanks to Isaac of Wig Bags for the following pics
See you at the next Chi-Tie in March!
