I was again invited to a unique (for the gulf coast ) event this weekend. It was started by a group of fly tyers from four surrounding states over twenty years ago. It's Called the Toledo Bend Renevous and is held in a park on beautiful Toledo Bend lake on the Texas , Louisiana border.The rendevous was started by a group of conclave tyers that enjoyed each others company but found that at tying events they rarely had time to sit and share patterns and tips or just visit . So for this weekend there is no agenda , no schedules . Bring your wife and kids and do what suits you when it suits you. Some spend the days fishing and the nights tying . There is always coffee on and someone tying no matter what the hour is. Everyone brings an entree for one meal and it all goes into a comunal kitchen and out comes three fabulous meals a day . In past years the menu has included some of the best tasting cajun dishes and extravagent deserts. (I may gain a few pounds). I can't wait to get together and see what new flies everyone is tying and just visit and relax.
I was wondering is this a common type of event across the country or is it unique to this area?

That sounds really cool, Fred. I don't know of anything like that around here with that degree of Southern hospitality, but form time to time tiers do get together to share ideas and patterns, and groups from this site have gotten together to do a bit of fishing, as well.
