Hi Everybody!

Reid Stoyberg was our guest tyer tonight. Reid taught 22 tyers how to construct both a caddis emerger and a caddis pupae. Reid has successfully used both patterns on local lakes. Reid's flies are based on Davie McPhail's pattern. You can see his videos on Youtube (see the previous post). Reid made some adjustments to his patterns based on his observations of the emergers and pupae at local pot hole lakes. Reid's presentation was simply outstanding. He was well prepared and his instructions were very detailed. We were all impressed, Reid! Imagine, a seasoned veteran at 16 years old.

Next week Doug Pullen is our guest tyer. Doug has a neat theme planned for us. See you there!

We have two spots left for the trip to Manitoba. Let me know if you want to go.
