Last night was the first Maine Bar Fly. It was held at Oxbow Blending & Bottling in Portland, Maine with Aaron Lockwood, of Casco Bay Flies, providing his simple but effective "Laser Bunny" streamer pattern. People gathered, with all various levels of tying experience, to spin up one of Aaron's great flies and enjoy some of the many tasty beers that Oxbow brews right here in Maine. HMH Vises was kind enough to provide all of the loaner vises for those in need and also circled around the room helping tyers out as well.
Thanks to everyone that came out and enjoyed themselves!
This will be a monthly event held at breweries around Maine, so keep an eye out for information on the next one via email.
