March 18 - Creekside Semi-Annual Tyathon
The 16th annual Tyathons will begin with its first 2017 gathering on Saturday at the Ruritan facility in Bedington, WV along highway 11 North out of Martinsburg. For years interested fly tyers and others who enjoy the fly fishing celebrate the sport by convening an open meeting of tyers and use the opportunity to demonstrate the skill and help for those who wish to learn how to tie. The event is free to all and we encourage folks to come and join the group and perhaps gain or improve interest in the fly fishing arts. For questions and/or to confirm attendance. Contact John at either or (304) 263- 5470 (Submitted by John DeMars)

This act must be witnessed by another AFA member. The information of all the facts must be presented to the AFA Board of Directors for confirmation and approval.

Certificates designed by Bob Stouffer will be presented at the next Annual Banquet
