Come to Rendezvous on Nov 4-6th and you'll be able to "put hands on" the vises on a number of advanced tyers, as well as, inquire as to why they utilize their particular vises.
You'll also have the opportunity to tie with those same folks and learn a bunch about tying...
The Gulf Coast Council and the Texas Council of the IFFF, annually co-sponsor the "North Toledo Bend Rendezvous".
Held the first weekend of November at North Toledo Bend State Park near Zwolle, LA, this will be the 28th Rendezvous (since 1989) of this gathering of fly tyers representing Federation clubs from Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Mississippi and beyond.
With no planned activities, but plenty of fly tying, food, fly casting instruction and fly fishing, and with only a minimal fee to cover lodging and meals, the North Toledo Bend Rendezvous remains one of the top tying events held each year in the U.S.A.http://pages.suddenlink.net/w/Rendez/indexR.html
If you have never attended the North Toledo Bend Rendezvous or haven't been in a while, your are hereby invited to attend... Hey, we haven't gathered on the shores of Toledo Bend and throwing this party for 28 years for nothing!!!
Rendezvous is your chance to sit down and tie flies with some of the very best tyers in the Deep South! No matter if you are a beginner to tying or a master of this craft, you will learn a lot (or at least have fun tying with your friends &/or teaching others). We always have a great time!
This is a wonderful event that is appropriate for your whole family... So bring your tying buddies, "significant other", as well as your kids/grandkids! And No you do not have to be a member of the IFFF or a club to attend, but if you attend Rendezvous just once, you'll want to come back each year!
See you there!
