2015 NIFTY Winter Dinner
The 2015 Northern Illinois Fly Tyers Winter Dinner took place last Saturday at Maggiano's in Schaumburg. The food, spirits and conversation amongst friends was excellent. Previous NIFTY President Jim Gould (Oct 2012 - June 2014), was presented a 7'6" 5wt bamboo rod with a Everette Garrison style taper. This bamboo rod was hand-crafted by NIFTY member Ed Miller, who presented the rod to Jim. Bob Hovet won a $150 gift card to Chicago Fly Fishing Outfitters.
