Tying session in the woods
Thirty-some fly tyers met in a restaurant in Denmark, ate some good food and tied flies together
My good friend Henning and I had signed up for an event on Facebook. ”Tying Session in the Forest” it was called. “60 seats. Be there or be square”. Well, maybe it didn't say the last thing, but you get it.
I picked up Henning on the day and we took the 40 minute ride to the venue, a restaurant located in a beautiful area west of Copenhagen. Underway we noticed several places that could call for a future visit with a camera.
We arrived at the place, grabbed the tying and photo stuff and made our way to the room where things were going to happen.
Lots of both familiar and new faces, and lots of “Hello”s and “How are you?”s. We found a table and started chatting.
And that basically went on for the next 3 hours.
It's like Christmas
“It's like Christmas” as Henning said, referring to the great company, the good food (and good beer too!) and the ambiance as a whole. A couple of well known Danish fly tiers – Kern Leo Lund and Rune Westphal – were at one table showing their impressing shrimp imitations, but most people were just tying at their own table or mingling and talking.
I managed to make a total mess of my place at the table by tying muddlers, but I wasn't the only one who “spread the happiness”. Lots of dubbing, feathers and flash was left behind on tablecloths and carpets when the company broke up at 9:30 and people started returning home after a great few hours together.
