Hi Everybody!

It was Roy Saunders turn to be our guest tyer. Roy showed the 17 tyers how to tie a "West Coast" Rolled Muddler and a modified Doc Spratley. Both patterns work well. Roy related how he used the "West Coast" Rolled Muddler with success on the Bow River at dusk. The Doc Spratley tied with marabou wing instead of pheasant tail makes for a streamer that looks alive in the water. Excellent patterns Roy. Thanks for sharing!

Next week Byron Stearns will take us through three stages of the brown drake life cycle.

Remember that the Canadian Fly Fishing Exposition is on this weekend in Calgary at Spruce Meadows. Look here for details:


The fly tying seminar with Phil Rowley on January 30th has one spot left.
