Mouse Patterns!



Twenty five fly tiers came out tonight and had a great time tying two very cool mouse patterns that definitely are fish catchers! The Morrish Mouse is a staple fly pattern in Alaska and in Kamchatka in Russia. Take a look at this cool video of the Morrish Mouse getting devoured by gigantic rainbows:


We also tied a neat fly that a young fly fishing fanatic, Jeremy Roy, put me on to called Count Chocula! What a neat pattern that I can hardly wait to try in Northern Saskatchewan and perhaps on an unsuspecting big bruiser brown trout! Thanks Jeremy!

Next week, Doug DeWitt is our guest instructor. I know Doug has been spending time fly fishing the salt in Cuba! I bet he will bring some salt water patterns along. Doug is a passionate fly fisherman and you will enjoy his presentation!

Save the last Saturday in January for an all day comprehensive workshop with Phil Rowley. The theme is Euro Nymphing. It is going to be a fabulous workshop!


The guys having a great time at fly tying class! To me, that is exactly what our club is all about!


...I was impressed with the quality of the flies that the gang tied tonight!
