Southern Culture on the Fly, the South’s leading online fly fishing magazine, will hold their annual Tie-One-On-Athon Sunday, February 24, 12noon-6pm. The fundraiser draws in some of the region’s best fly tiers including guides, shop owners and commercial tiers, who will see how many flies they can tie for Project Healing Waters, a non-profit dedicated to the physical and emotional rehabilitation of wounded veterans through fly fishing and fly tying. New this year: the public is invited to bring their vises and join in the fly tying. Those who bring their vises to tie receive free admission.
Held right in the heart of downtown Asheville at 80 N. Lexington Avenue, Suite C. Advance tickets available for $10 at Hunter Banks, 29 Montford Ave., and at the door the day of the event (kids under 13 are free).
This event has quickly become everyone's favorite winter tying session providing a casual venue to hang out with some of the South's best tiers. As always this year's event is open to the public and will feature gear raffles, quick clinics, food, beer, and enough feather and fur to make you think the circus train exploded. Please join us on Sunday February 24th to raise some money for our wounded veterans.
