I recently met a few of our Junior Members ( young fly tyers and Fly Fishermen ) in the Chat Room. Mostly self-taught and very impressive kids. Most can only dream of that upgraded vise and the wanted materials list is also just a dream for many of them.

Many of you may still have that old vise or vises somewhere packed away. I would like to ask for donations of your old vises, tools and Hooks. Materials in packages would also be appreciated. I would like to establish a small collection of these items, to be offered to kids in FAOL and make these gifts available to our future tyers.

Perhaps we will ask them for a short essay on what fly tying/fly fishing means to them.

Are you able to help? Kindly PM with donations or questions. Thank you
