Pig Farm Ink Presents: IRON FLY! Minneapolis

Pig Farm Ink and Skinny Water Culture, along with Mend Provisions and Mountain Khakis, presents: IRON FLY!

Iron fly is a competition based around the same concept of Iron Chef. Fly tyers will brawl it out with mystery ingredients while trying to maintain their drinking tolerance. Are you game? The festivities take place following the F3T show on Saturday night at Mend Provisions.

2719 E 42nd St, Minneapolis

Myself and Dan Frasier of CarpPro will be representing the dark side. Any other crafters of the force are encouraged to attend!

The F3T
Just a reminder that the F3T shows in Minneapolis are fast approaching. If you haven't already procured a ticket hurry! Another show was added this year, but that still doesn't mean that they're safe from getting sold out. See you there!

F3T 2014 - Fly Fishing Film Tour Minneapolis

F3T 2014 - Fly Fishing Film Tour Minneapolis
Once again, the Fly Fishing Film Tour (F3T) is making it's way through Minnesota this winter. Of special note, this year the film tour decided to add another night in Minneapolis! What does that mean? It means that all those folks who missed out on getting in on the sold out action the past few years should have a better shot of catching the Film Tour at least one of the nights this year. Of course, I know there will be folks that will be attending the show on both nights just for the social scene. I'll be there. Here're the details:
MINNEAPOLIS MN - 2 SHOWS - The Parkway Theater
Date & Time:

2/1/2014 7:00:00 PM
