The August membership meeting, typically our annual fly-tying workshop, will be relocated to Backwoods Fort Worth this year and will have limited seating. Come and learn from two of the best fly tiers in the country, Dutch Baughman and Kyle Hand.

Here are the details:

• Place: Backwoods store in Montgomery Plaza – 441 Carroll St., Fort Worth

• Date: Aug 4 at 7 p.m.

• Zoom meeting link: to be sent a day or two before the meeting – look for David Hooper’s email

Because of health safety regulations, Backwoods cannot have more than 25 people at the store, which means we only have 18 spots available for members. Store staff, fly tyers, and other personnel take up the other 7 spots. Attendance will be controlled by reservation only.

If you are interested in attending the workshop in person, please contact FWFF Fly Tying Director Carlos Crespo at 817-908-9274 or email at Please make sure you receive a reply to your email or a text to confirm your spot. There will be a waiting list if more than 18 people are interested in attending in person.

Please do NOT show up at the store that evening if you have not received a confirmation from Carlos. If we are at capacity, it is likely we cannot let you in (and that is something we really don’t want to do). If you prefer not to attend in person, you can join us via Zoom as in previous meetings. David Hooper will send the link before the meeting.

The workshop will not be a tie-along event, and the flies Dutch and Kyle will tie are not for beginners. We will try to record the event and upload it to the web afterwards so you can tie along, if you so wish.

Please follow state and city health safety regulations: wear a mask while indoors and maintain social distancing.

Many thanks to Backwoods for hosting the event and to our remarkable fly tiers, Dutch and Kyle, for sharing their knowledge with the club.
