Nation's Oldest Fly Tying Club Marks 50 Years

September 3, 2009 By: Marshall Cutchin

This year marks the 50th anniversary of United Fly Tyers, the country’s oldest fly tying club. UFT’s periodical, Roundtable, was the first and, at one time, only publication dedicated to fly tying. Members, men and women of all ages, continue to hold meetings on the first Thursday of each month in Woburn, Massachusetts and welcome any one interested in fly tying.
Members, past and present, and the public are invited to United Fly Tyers 50th Anniversary Gala on Sunday, October 25, 2009 from 5-9 in the evening to be held at the historic Longfellow’s Wayside Inn, Wayside Inn Road in Sudbury, Mass. The evening’s speaker will be Jim Krul, Director of The Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum in Livingston Manor, NY, and the Gala will feature door prizes, raffles and special events.
