News From Blue Ribbon FliesFish With the Best
To all my good fly fishing friends,
I am forwarding this newsletter because I think you should all see the film that is offered here. It is very important that we are all aware of the threat to our water and our fisheries, not to mention our well-being on this planet. There are some very experienced and wise people speaking on this film. They are not politicians of course, they are fly fisherman. Please watch and then speak out.
The film is beautiful. Please take ten minutes to watch it. Follow this link to view the newsletter.

One for new fly tyers and one for more experienced tyers. We are limiting the number of folks to 10, and are asking for $15.00 for the entire series. You need to sign up on the events calendar in Jan. for the series and you will be reminded of each of the sessions in the following months.
