Default Iron Fly Event

Saw this over on the facebooks and figured some of yall might be interested. There is a fly fishing related business holding an Iron fly event the friday night before the Blue Ridge Trout Fest (or whatever the proper name of that is). Here is a link to some more info for those able to make it.

If I weren't busy then I would be there, cause then would make for a good weekend of fishing and general trout bummery.
Thank you, dear God, for this good life and forgive us if we do not love it enough. Thank you for the rain. And for the chance to wake up in three hours and go fishing: I thank you for that now, because I won't feel so thankful then. - Garrison Keillor

Default IronFly Fly Tying Competition

Do you think you are the best at tying flies? Do you have the newest secret fly or hard-to-get materials? Can you cure UV glue by merely looking at it? Do you think you have what it takes to carry the title "IRON FLY Champion"? Do you like to party?

If so then you might want to grab a couple of your best friends (newbies preferred) and check out the IRON FLY event in Blue Ridge this Friday, April 27. In conjuNction with the Blue Ridge Trout Festival on April 28, IRON FLY will take place from 7-10 pm at Grumpy Old Men Brewing Company in Blue Ridge.

Gather your friends, whether they tie flies or not, and head for IRON FLY in Blue Ridge. IRON FLY is fly-tying meets Iron Chef, as tiers compete in a battle of partying skills and bobbin prowess to make the ultimate fish snack from the same set of mystery ingredients. Race against your liver and your competitors to show the panel of judges that your vice has the spice.

Each event is subject to local rules, and prizes will vary per event. In some instances, there will be no prizes at all, as this is not a "fly tying tournament." Irresponsible behavior will be loosely tolerated but as....les will be kicked directly in the face.

Learn more at and on Facebook at BlueRidgeTroutFestival

Are you supposed to bring anything as far as vice, tools, materials, etc or will everything be provided?
