Weekly Fly Tying Night in SE PA

Hey guys,
No worries if there is no interest in this, but I thought I would throw it out there.

I don't play poker and I would rather tie flies with a beer then go out to a bar for a few hours. I have an excruciating bed time routine with two toddlers and a night off would be great (my wife takes off on Thursdays for yoga).

So, any interest in meeting up with beers and fly tying materials and tying some flies? Exton, Downingtown, WC or surrounding areas.

Good luck Bogey. It is always a great time tying flies and having a beer with a group.

I have a group show up once a month on a night that the brewery is slow. 5 to 7 people have been showing up.

Thanks Jerry, I would love to attend those but Doylestown is a bit of a hike on a weeknight. I probably should have said bi-weekly or monthly rather than weekly.

I don't know how regularly I could make it, my schedule is a bit erratic. But, I'm watching with interest to see if you get anything going in the hope I could join in some times. No reason tying should be a solitary endeavor. I'd be excited to something in the SE area come together since a lot of the other gatherings seem to be just far enough away that they are impractical.

I'm interested in this. Wilmington, DE here so Exton area isn't too bad of a drive. Any night of the week is good for me except Thursday. And I vote for a monthly get together.

Interested, I am in East Fallowfield (work in Exton right on Valley Creek). Fortunately my kids are grown and on their own so any night works. A cool place to do it would be at The Righteous Tap House on Shadyside Road outside Downingtown. They have a pretty cool table to tie on if you can get it.

Righteous Tap House


From experience of running one in Doylestown

Contact the owner/manager and talk to them and find a night that is dead.

I worked with the Doylestown Brewing Co and got the 4th Tuesday of the month. The bartenders and servers look forward to our meeting. Doesn't hurt to give a great tip.

We even get our own room. We bring our lamps and extension cords. Food is great and so is the beer. The patrons stop by and they even want to find out how to learn. HINT for all you fly fishing clubs to get new members.

Good Luck and hope you get this going. I post when we meet here and on Facebook. Look for Jerrys Fly Tying Tips or the Fly Tying Group also to see photos.

This is pretty cool to see all the interest. I imagine if we actually get it established more guys will hop on board also. It seems like there are a lot more guys in the area from reading in all of the forums.

Teh_Fly- I have never been to the Righteous Tap House but it definitely sounds like a cool venue. I live pretty close to Victory and can give them a call, but I'm not getting my hopes up as it seems they never have a slow night...will think of other places also.

I like to tie flies.

I like to drink beer.

Win/win!

I live 20 minutes away the Righteous TR, and never knew it existed. It looks like a good place.

I go to Four Dogs all the time right down the road, but that's more of a restaurant and gets very crowded.

I agree that Victory may be a too busy, even during the week, and they would probably require reservations.

If someone can get a thumbs up from a venue, just pick a date and time and see what happens.

No doubt, anything the Bucks County or Delco guys can do.....Chester County guys can do better!

Thanks for the info Jerry.

Bogey,

Yeah Victory could be tough, but the one in Parkesburg has lots of room upstairs that I've never seen near capacity on a week night. But that may be too far out to the west. Righteous only has one large open room inside so that may not work so well based on what Jerry said.

I have a friend who is rep for Great Lakes Brewery and knows of many more possibilities than I do; so I asked him to recommend a few places in the areas mentioned. I will let you know what he has to say and we can go from there.

Jerry
