Update: Thanks to fellow fly-tier, Bill O, and musicians Joe Nobiling (joenobiling.blogspot.com) and John Kinser, for coming out to a cool place on a hot day! It was great to have musicians present again! Spoke a little to others about musky and bass flies and the Java owners' son picked out a cool-looking chartreuse and black Guinea Bugger Deluxe to take home. Maybe he'll tie a fly the next time.
Tying at Java Java is often last-minute during this time of year as actual fishing takes precedence and then there are those dang work weekends. So, I typically post only a few days ahead of time if we'll be tying at the shop. If you ever want to attend but think you'll miss a blog post, send me your email address and I'll drop you a line for the next date and time. ~Twitch
I'll be tying flies this Saturday, July 7, 2012, at Java Java, located at 836 E. River Drive, Davenport, IA. Tying will start at 9:15-ish and last until at least 11 or noon. As many know, part of the road is closed. A detour is posted and the city has placed signs directing customers to the coffee shop. The detour route I take probably adds only 3 minutes to my usual drive. Directions are posted below as well. Don't forget that the Farmer's Market is also going on, so it's a great morning to head to Davenport.
Thanks! Come on out and tie some flies!
My DETOUR DIRECTIONS: Heading from Bettendorf on East River drive, right on Bridge Ave, continue uphill & follow detour sign, left on East 10th St. Then, I go left on Oneida down the hill and take tight right on Charlotte St, left on Kary, and then, again, right on Charlotte (brick), left on Tremont. Go down the hill and just past the light blue house is Java Java. 2 min 55 sec.
