Fly Tying Night

       Coming May 13th! 6:30-9:00 pm. We’re planning to have a drop-in fly tying night at Food Fix, 938 11th Street Modesto. This will be a non-structured, tie-what-you-want event just to have an opportunity to be among friends and share some flies, lies, ideas, and tips. Beginning in June the monthly tying night will be held on the 3rd Monday of each month beginning at 6:30 pm.
