New Flies From Michigan Tiers

February 21, 2009 By: Marshall Cutchin

Midwest fly tiers have something new to look forward to next weekend, in the form of the first Celebration of Fly Tying show kicking in Wyoming, Michigan (just outside Grand Rapids). Thirty Midwest “yarn spinners,” including master tiers Ray Schmidt, Jeff Andrews, Gerry Worden, Chris Soule, Jim Reed, Julie Nielsen, Kevin Feenstra, Dick Walle and Chris Helm will display their works on large-screen TVs and mingle with the curious. Check out a few of the interesting patterns in Howard Meyerson’s article in The Grand Rapids Press.
