Once again a great event, bravo to the presenters, organizers and the One More Cast staff for putting this on.


All seven patterns advertized were tied and I did six before having to hit the road for the long ride home. Dont take that wrong, this event was worth the drive.


All of the fly's were definetley ones I will use. They all will catch fish and for the most part are patterns I havent tied or fished before. Im still excited about the prospects of using these new flys.


Just a word about the skill level needed to attend one of these events. If you have a vise a pair of sissors and a bobbin and can spell f-l-y you are skilled enough.

With the help of others at the table, and the presenter, a beginning tier would be able to tie along with the veterans. In one of the pictures there is a young boy seated with his father and tying right along with the rest of us. I beleive his dad will be buying tying materials for him for a number of years to come.

Nicely done Dad!

Sounds and appears this proved to be an outstanding event as expected. Sorry I had to miss it. Regretfully, my elderly Mother fell which precluded me from attending. I do recall from prior years' events that copies of the fly patterns being demonstrated and tied were available for distribution. Since I was unable to attend, would appreciate receiving a set of the patterns that were tied. Thank you.

Glad to see all the positive feedback to the ISA/OneMoreCast Fly Tying event. We (my son and I) had a great time. At first, I assumed he would get bored and be a pain in the butt. But the 10 year old kept asking to stay and tie yet another bug!

Thanks to Joseph for the opportunity, for having such patience with the boy. And the excellent articulated minnow pattern. Young Matt loved being with everyone. I am grateful for the chance to hang with good guys who love to fish.
