Saw yesterday that DNAinfo.com wrote an article about flyfishing opportunities in downtown Chicago and the Chicagland area, spotlighting our good friend Dave Kuntzelman (of Chi-Tie, Urban Assault Flyfishing). Thought you all might enjoy... https://www.dnainfo.com/chicago/20160222/lakeview/chicago-is-fly-fishing-mecca-even-on-nasty-a---bubbly-creek
Hard to believe it's already been a month, but it has. We Chicago guys are doing another "Chi-Tie" bar flies session on Monday, April 8th at 6:30pm. Same place as last time, Galway Bay, 500 W Diversey here in Chicago. It was a blast last month with a great turnout. Lots of good people to chat with, swap stories with, and learn from. I unfortunately will not be in attendance for this one as I'll be out of town. Hopefully I'll have a fish story or two when I return. To those who came out for last month's event, thank you. I hope you will continue to join us and enjoy the city. If you have any trouble finding the place, contact Dave Kuntzelman at (404) 909-1266. If you have other questions in the meantime, feel free to send me a PM. Come out and enjoy a brew while you spin up a new bug.

Fellow BassBuggers, I wanted to let you know of a monthly fly tying event called "Chi-Tie" that I am helping to get rolling right here in the city of Chicago. It's a fly tying gathering at a small local bar near Diversey harbor. We did one last month to kick things off and it went very well. We will be trying to keep to a 2nd-Monday-of-every-month schedule. That means the next event is March 11, 2013, a little less than two weeks from now. This one is already looking like it will be better-attended than the last, but I want to make sure to extend the invitation and information to all of you. I have already spoken with Capt. Austin Adduci, who is planning on attending and bringing some of his friends. We are talking with the bar to see if we can get them to play some fish porn on one of their big TV's during our time, and there's talk of a tying demo by one of our local celebs. I'll keep you posted on those things in this thread. The event will take place at Galway Bay, 500 W Diversey (bar is located downstairs), on Monday, March 11 from 6:30pm-9:30pm. You must be 21 or older to attend. Come on down and get social with a fine beverage and a great bunch of local anglers. Leave with a few flies and some new ideas.
