Last weekend I attended a meeting of the club presidents of the Southern Council of the FFI. We are one of the 13 clubs that make up the SOC. It was a discussion about club insurance, available monies and the Conclave that we have in October at Mt. Home AR. Many ideas were thrown out, we will see if the clubs can support the SOC and each other. I will keep you informed as things happen.
The meeting was held in Branson at the first (hopefully annual) MO Trout Fishers tying fair. It was a good show of Midwest tiers and local shops. Keep it in mind for next year. See Mike Swederska’s report on his take of this event. We had a great time and as always picked up some ideas and a new take on some established patterns.
I even won a sling bag in the auction, but still on the fence about losing my old vest.
