Thanks a lot to all entrants. All entries are worthy contenders, and our entrants range from a rising star of only 2 days on the vise to veterans of up to 35 years hackling hooks.


Note that we had as many young entrants as adults, so fly tying has a bright future, especially considering the great skill shown in our youth category.  


You all helped to promote our hobby of fly tying through your participation and we hope you’ll enter again in 2012.


Thanks to our panel of judges, Sandy Barnhill, Frank Walford, and Damian Welsh.

Congratulations to the winners!
