Wet Fly Tying Contest

Head over to the FlyFishCalgary forum to brush up on your tying skills with a bit of friendly fly tying competition. Dr. Bull Trout is hosting these weekly events with a new contest every week through the winter. It’s all for honor and well, it’ll help you get through the shack nasties and might fill a couple spaces in your box.

http://flyfishcalgary.com/board/index.php?showtopic=2501 The current contest is for wet flies. Dec 9 is the deadline to post your entry and the flies will be posted to the forum to be judged by the members of the forum. Last year the contest was held under the moniker of KOTV, King of the Vise, but I’m not sure if the contest was actually named this year. Go ahead and get involved.
