Bring your own tools, materials, supplies, snacks, beverages and just tie!  Although this is not an instruction night, there will still be plenty of learning from each other. This is a meeting of the minds: an excuse to get out of the house, get behind the vise, and have some fun with fellow tiers.  If you’ve got an upcoming saltwater trip and some patterns you want to take…great!  This is a free event for who want to hang out and tie with other tiers.  Equipment and materials will not be provided but we may be able to accommodate a few items or a vice if necessary.
