Here's a .02 comment from a potential 'mentee'. (I didn't know that was a word; hey, I've already learned something!) I've been able to get a minute or two's worth of advice or demo from the local fly shop. But I hate to take up their time when they've got other customers in the store. I've watched a hundred videos, which are all valuable to a point, but am left with a hundred questions. I've owned a vise since Christmas. Tied a couple of dozen ugly flies, just to get the feel for the tools. I think it would be cool for one mentor and a handful of mentees (really? I need to look that up.....) to get together and tie, ask questions, share materials, tool idea, etc. At a local shop? Maybe. Restaurant? Maybe. Outdoors? Perfect. I like the idea here.....managing schedules and logistics is probably the hardest part.
