For the past 4 years a bunch of us have gotten together to tie flies in Feburary just to have some fun, beat the winter doldrums and get the juices flowing for the upcoming season. For the past 3 years we've actually met and tied in the Catskill museum.
As a new flyfisherman and tier with only a few years experience it's a little strange sitting in that building and tying flies with all the wonderful exhibits within an arms reach. Seeing pictures of the Darbees, Dettes, and so many others as well as their tools and materials you get a real sense of some of the nostalgia and tradition.
It IS a great place to visit and the fishing in the Willow just outside the museum isn't that bad either.
