We’re at the 51st Summer Arts Festival next weekend, June 28-30, 2019. There will be a lot to see, including our booth, at the beautiful Umpqua Valley Arts Association Art Center campus in Roseburg at 1624 West Harvard. Come visit us there!
Spring is here but it isn’t too early to save September 7th on your calendar to attend the 2019 festival. This year we’ll be at the lovely Roseburg Country Club. For more on the facilities there, see their website at https://www.roseburgcountryclub.com/. Meanwhile, enjoy some great weather!
Make UP Class for Fly tying class, Thursday21st of this month (March) at the Art Center Classroom from 6 to 8ish. We will go a little longer so we can do a bit of a review of last class for those that were not able to attend. Dry fly patterns will be the focus…fun, fun, fun!
Maybe fishing has not been top priority after the past two weeks of historic winter weather. We’re all looking forward to spring. Yes, it will come… hopefully not before you get all those broken trees cleaned up.

Not giving up on getting YOU to put some thoughts down in haiku and submitting them. Go ahead and add published POET to your resume after accomplishing this! Here is another sample…just string some thoughts together and sound it out: 5 syllables first and last line, 7 for middle line.
A day still so young
Water’s gentle lap beckons
Succumb to its call
…In the Party Room, on Tuesday September 25. We are switching up the venue this month from the Backside Brewery to here…a little more light to tie by and food and drink still available.
Two baby hopper patterns that are killer from Montana to Oregon will be demonstrated.
Bring a vice or just come and watch, materials will be provided as usual.
