The C.F.T.G. teams up with Kids on the fly!

The Catskill Fly Tyers Guild has recently teamed up with Kids On the Fly, New Jersey; to help spread the history, knowledge and passion that surrounds our obsessive time behind the vise. Donations were sent by way of vises, hooks and storage containers and we hope that these items, along with volunteering, will help further the mission that Kids On The Fly continues to accomplish with their teachings.
