PATINA Meeting Announcement
For the May 21 program, the featured speaker will be Chris Bogart, who builds and restores banboo fly rods in his shop located in Luray, Virginia. Chris presents a second program on the topic covering material he only touched on in his November 2015 presentation that focused on the history and development of fly rod craftsmanship. In the new session Chris will discuss how fly rods can be customized to fit various field conditions and tailored to meet ascetic and performance characteristics. His first presentation was summarized in the January 2016 PATINAGRAM and provides a helpful description for those interested in fly rod construction and history. Plan to hear another fascinating presentation by a local expert whose work exemplifies preserving traditional crafts. See November 2015 Chris Bogart summary here:

The Potomac Antique Tools and Industries Association, Inc. (PATINA) is an educational, tax-exempt organization for people who have an interest in the tools, crafts or manufacturing processes of the past.
Formed in 1977, PATINA is a regional tool club based in the Washington, D.C. area. We have members from 24 states, the District of Columbia and several foreign countries. Antique tool collectors, tool users and people simply seeking knowledge are well represented in PATINA's membership. The annual dues of $12.00 includes membership for the entire family and they are welcome to participate in all PATINA events. PATINA's original group of about 30 has grown to over 250.
Our mission is to promote and increase knowledge and understanding of the tools and trades practiced by our American ancestors. This purpose is partly served by the bimonthly newsletter PATINAGRAM which includes member-contributed articles and information of interest to our members. In addition, the PATINAGRAM provides regular announcements of upcoming meetings and auctions, reports on past meetings, reviews of relevant publications, and notices of other tool-related events. As an educational organization, PATINA is often invited to stage exhibits and demonstrations for local and national groups that express an interest in early tools and trades.
