Wild Women of the Water visit my shop

Several members of the Central Oregon Fly Fishers Wild Women of the Water visited my rod building shop earlier this week as one of their monthly outings.  I got the chance to show them the different aspects of building bamboo fly rods.  We had a great interactive time, with everyone getting the chance to try out a few of the building steps.  I was quite impressed with their interest and skills in the workshop.  These women really know their stuff when it comes to fly fishing, and it was fun having them here. Here are a few fun photos of the event.
