TYING CONTEST '06
THE WINNERS!

A very big thanks to all of those who entered the flies to the 2006 Atlantic Salmon Tying Contest. Also a big thanks to the Partridge hook company and FAOL for sponsoring the contest.

I must say that it was very hard to single out the top three of each category. Any one of them could have been #1 so everyone should feel proud to be on the winner's stage. Nicely done to all of the tyers.

With a drum roll, the winners are...

Happy Trails! Ronn

On behalf of FAOL and myself, I'd like to thank all of the entrants to this tying contest. Each and every one of you were winners by taking the time and making the effort to push your tying skills a bit higher than you might have otherwise done.

The point of having this contest was/is to bring new Tyers to the craft and help make existing Tyers better. If any of the of the entrants would like to go over their flies with me from a technical point of view, please feel free to email me at ronn@ronnlucassr.com or phone at 503-654-0466. I'll be more than happy to give some input that may help fine tune your flies.

Until the next contest.

Happy Trails! ~ Ronn Lucas, Sr.
